Girl Plus Food… Hormel Preferred Blogger!

… click the image to visit the Hormel Foods Recipes on Facebook! So in the usual Carmen fashion, while posting recipes using the Hormel Black Label Bacon, showcasing the products I received for review totally slipped my mind. My July goodies from Hormel… #tadaa! That’s Hormel Gatherings – Hard Salami & Pepperoni, Hormel Black Label […]

Candied Bacon Ice Cream!

Candied Bacon Ice Cream!

Let’s continue experimenting with what must be a preview to heaven that we call BACON, shall we? In my last post, we dipped these strips of ecstasy into chocolate. Good lord. And with temperatures reaching 100°+ here in Las Vegas, I thought it would be so perfect to try bacon in a cool, creamy treat! […]

Salmon Shioyaki (Salted Grilled Salmon)

Salmon Shioyaki (Salted Grilled Salmon)

Salmon is my very favorite fish. I was a Pescetarian for over 15 years (until about 7 years ago), and I swear, 85% of my meals consisted of this delicious fish prepared in some way. Quickie trivia: I was a fish/veggie only eater when my JRoc was born, so I’ve never had issues feeding him […]

Chocolate Covered Bacon!

Chocolate Covered Bacon!

So, I’ve been invited to participate in their Extended Family Blogger Program, and I was so excited to receive my very first monthly review shipment this morning.

Easy Breakfast Crepes!

Easy Breakfast Crepes!

So if you’re familiar with me and my son at all, you probably know that my child is not a fan of “boxed cereal” for breakfast. I don’t know why… I can enjoy a bowl or three of Kellogg’s Krave Cereal for all my meals. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t appreciate a yummy, freshly […]

Thai Mango Sweet Rice Dessert (Khao Niaow Ma Muang)

Thai Mango Sweet Rice Dessert (Khao Niaow Ma Muang)

I’m not exactly sure how it got there, but I found a bag of Thai Sweet Rice in the pantry. Probably from one of my Asian store visits when I threw everything in arm’s reach into our cart. Anyway, I figured I’d make some Thai Sweet Rice Dessert (Khao Niaow Ma Muang) which I’ve ordered […]
