Carrots in Parsley Butter

Carrots in Parsley Butter, a simple side dish, yet rich in color and flavor.  The carrots are cooked in salt, pepper, and a little bit of sugar and tossed in parsley and butter.    I am always looking for simple sides to accompany spicy casseroles, meat and potato stews, or heavy pasta main dishes.

Perfectly Baked Bacon

Perfectly Baked Bacon, incredible way to cook bacon perfectly without all the fuss.  All it takes is a rimmed baking sheet pan lined with just parchment paper or a wire rack insert and bacon.   I first saw this method of cooking bacon over at my good friend Marsha's blog  The Better Baker .   And I have been cooking bacon this way ever since.

Ombre Roasted Vegetables, a beautiful display of fading orange-colored vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash that have been tossed with flavorful herbs, avocado oil,  and honey then perfectly roasted.

Roasted Bacon and Sage Wrapped Peaches ~ Celebrating the End of Peach Season

Roasted Bacon and Sage Wrapped Peaches, a delightful appetizer or snack that will wow your Southern guest.  There are only four ingredients, bacon, sage, and luscious peaches drizzled with a balsamic honey vinegar.  The perfect dish to celebrate the end of the peach season. I have been wanting to make these roasted peaches for some time and never wanted to heat the oven long enough for them to cook.   The days here in Texas are beginning to cool down, and the peaches are getting fewer in number at the grocery stores, but the stores have started stocking fresh sage.  Now that is the end of one season and the beginning of another, summer and fall.
