Sun-dried Tomato Chicken and Bacon Pasta

I’ve made so many versions of this over the years but this is the best. It’s creamy, with a bright flavor from the fresh herbs and sun-dried tomatoes, and the chicken is so tender. Throw in some bacon and it’s over-the-top delicious. I’ve also added spinach to this in the pasta, which is also delicious!…

A Sexy Little Tart

Gruyere, bacon, and caramelized onions. Does it get sexier than that? This is the tart for people who think they can’t make tarts. That’s right, it’s a total cheat.

The Best Spinach Salad

Bacon and dates and pumpkin seeds, oh my! This is one of the best salads I’ve ever made.
