A Quick Flavory Food Tip Bacon Lovers are Going to Love


Here is a quick tip for bacon lovers.

Bacon is a big part of my low carb keto diet. It's perfect in salads, on top of a BLT Lettuce Wrap, in omelets, as a quick snack and makes my favorite cooking oil, bacon butter. Let's just say I eat a lot of it on this way of life diet. 

I'm all about quick easy and convenient and using a coffee filter to drain your bacon is both easy and convenient. 

I made this batch for my BLT Wedge Salad. It is sooo good! 


Quick Pickled Red Onions So Easy Anyone Can Make Them!


Red pickled onions are so easy to make and are one of my favorite things to top salads, wraps and a  good charcuterie board.

Pickled onions are popping up topping burgers and salads at all the trendy restaurants. They are something our grandmothers use to make. I don't really know why they ever fell out of popularity in food because they are soo flavory and easy to make.
I loved picked out the pearl pickled onions out of my grandma's mustard pickles. I promise to post the mustard pickle recipe sometime soon because anyone who makes a roast should have some mustard pickles to add as a relish.

You can make pickled onions with an onion really. I'm making a batch with both red onion and yellow onion. 
You will simply need vinegar and onions. That's it! See super easy!
I love using my vintage ball canning jar with the glass lid and clamp on it to make pickled onions.

Peel your onions. Slice your onion into thin slices.  Add to a jar of vinegar. All to pickle in the refrigerator for about 2 days then they will be ready to top your hamburger, salad or add to your charcuterie board.
