    Cut the bacon??? But bacon (like chocolate) is a vegetable!!!
    yes. I've never met a recipe I didn't change.

    Not that people don't share good recipes the way they are, I guess it's just in my nature to want to "tweak" them to my individual liking.

    I think it's physically impossible for me to follow a recipe exactly. That's why baking isn't my favorite activity.

    Re: Just Recipes

    I made this EXTREMELY easy bread a few times this past month as a go-with for soups and salads:

    Sunflower Beer Bread

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons baker's sugar
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    12-ounce bottle or can of beer (Any kind -- you can change the beer to play with the flavors; I used Red Stripe this last time and it's my favorite so far with this bread)
    Couple of handfuls of sunflower seeds (without the shells!)

    Heat oven to 350º Fahrenheit. Line 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan with parchment (or grease the pan if you prefer). In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients and make a "well" in the center. Pour in the beer and olive oil. Mix with a wooden spoon until just blended (don't overmix!). The batter will be kind of sticky. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle top liberally with sunflower seeds. Bake at 350ºF for 50 - 60 minutes. The top will be crunchy, the inside soft. Serve warm; top with butter, caramelized onions, cheese -- or just naked!

    I had the best thing for dinner last night--and leftovers cold tonight. This is really simple, but very decadent.

    Get some fresh sea scallops. (Whole Foods or the like should have them.) Get some thick-cut bacon: one piece for every scallop. Wrap the scallops in the bacon (use toothpicks to secure), do a light dusting of Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning (or use salt & pepper & a tiny bit of cayenne if you're not a Tony's person), put them in a pan barely coated with olive oil, and broil for 2:30 to 3 minutes a side--just until the bacon is a bit cooked. Don't over-do it, or the scallops will dry out. I could eat this every day, but then I'd be broke and gain weight back, so I'm not. But for a special occasion, it is really a treat.

    That's me too.

    Bacon wrapped scallops are one of my favorites, but I don't get them often.

    Posted for Bunny and MRD as requested in another thread.

    Horseradish Burgers

    1 1/2 pound ground beef/chuck
    4 tablespoons bottled white horseradish
    1 tablepoon Worcestshire sauce
    1 teaspoon coarse salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    Using a fork, gently mix above ingredients in a bowl
    Form into patties and grill
    Top with cheese and/or other desired toppings.
    Makes 4-6 patties depending on size

    * I would like to note that this is my version of a Martha Stewart recipe. The ingredients are identical, but if you would care to learn how to form the "perfect" patty or how to make your own cheese to top them with, you can find that on her website Enjoy!

    I'm posting exactly as it came from my ex-neighbor. I ate this poundcake for over 30 years and always wanted the recipe. 15 years after I moved I finally get it.

    Myrosiedog's old neighbor's incredible poundcake

    CREAM TOGETHER: 2 STICKS BUTTER
    3 CUPS SUGAR

    BEAT IN: 6 LARGE EGGS
    (TWO AT TIME)

    ADD: 1 TSP VANILLA
    1 TSP ALMOND
    1 TSP LEMON

    SIFT TOGETHER: 3 CUPS All Purpose FLOUR
    ¼ TSP SALT
    ¼ TSP SODA

    BEAT IN ALTERNATELY: FLOUR MIXTURE
    1 CUP SOUR CREAM

    POUR INTO GREASED AND FLOURED TUBE PAN.

    BAKE AT 300 DEGREES FOR ABOUT 1½ HOURS
