Does it get better than Beer and Bacon? No, I didn’t think so.
It’s been awhile since I posted a recipe, so let’s do it up right!
I prefer baking my bacon in the oven to the stovetop or microwave (just say no to bacon in the microwave! Ick!) for a few reasons. First of all: less mess. I toss it on a baking sheet with a wire rack on top to let the grease drip onto the baking sheet, and I can walk away! Second, the awesome smell comes through the oven — but the heavy-greasy-smell doesn’t weigh the house down for the rest of the day! Also… I’ve convinced myself it’s “healthier”. It’s probably not, but for the sake of argument, let’s just say it is, ok? Ok!
1 lb thick-cut bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp beer (go with your gut on the type of beer here — if you drink it, use it, if not… don’t!)

And I am so. over. it.

“Who’s your favorite child?”
I mean… really.
A few years back, I was challenged to stop complaining on facebook. It was around thanksgiving, in the spirit of gratitude, and was a challenge that stuck. I became conscious of it to a degree of extremes. Until I looked at the title of my humble little blog and thought… shit. Do I need to stop complaining on here? But then I realized… I don’t complain to the level that people whine and complain on facebook. I don’t feel the need to fish for poor Kellis, make petty requests for coffee delivery because I’m tired or have a cold, or think my life is perfectly awful, or perfectly perfect for that matter. I’m a tough cookie. I’m honest. My life is real, and I try to exemplify that on all of my platforms. I write like I talk. If people have questions about my life, I answer. I don’t hide behind the perfection or the bullshit. You want to know something? Ask me. I’ll talk! Get two beers in me… I’ll talk more. Read More
