Bacon+Sriracha+Sweet Potato = Pure deliciousness. It is the collision of three of my favorite flavors and is a one baking pan deal, ready in under 45 minutes. If you have access to Benton’s Bacon, well then, you’ll just take it right over the top (and will probably never want to eat another brand of bacon again). A little Benton’s goes a long way in this recipe. Mine sits in the freezer until I need a little fix, when I cut an inch or so of bacon from the package. If I didn’t have self-control, it’s possible I’d eat the entire package in one sitting! Continue Reading

A tasty departure from your average, everyday salad! Tomato vinegar compliments the flavors nicely, although balsamic vinegar can be substituted. Don’t have shallots? Substitute chopped garlic and onions. If you cannot find a GF-labeled blue cheese, feta cheese is a viable alternative. I serve this at room temperature, just after it’s assembled. If you prefer, you can chill it, but consume within an hour or so of making it.
