I know it I am a flake...I post, post post then nothing absolutely noting out of me for months. Why, why do I keep doing this to you?!? Simple...Life gets crazy! Ever since I added a new little chef to my kitchen last November I get caught up and since we started solid food I am whipping up apples purees, mushing bananas and whirling up the baby bullet with all kinds of concoctions. But this is no reason to leave you out. So here we go again, I will do my best to post, but if it is any consolation when I go into hiding I am still cooking and squirreling away recipes to share with you so you are never far from my mind! So what do I have for you will I entice you to return to reading my blog and following me again...BACON...that's right BACON. Bacon gets everyone's attention and put us all in a good mood. So now that you may have forgiven my flakiness I have the most amazing, irresistible, delicious, mouth watering, serious Mac & Cheese you have ever eaten in your entire life. Forget about your favorite Mac & Cheese it is a Mac & Cheese of the past this is the Mac & Cheese of your future. But wait didn't I mention something about Bacon?!? That is correct, I have added bacon to this Mac & Cheese. There our relationship is now fixed and you will not even remember I ever left the blogging world...Enjoy!
