This chocolate mousse recipe was inspired by a trip to Paris, where I had the best mousse ever! This mousse was literally out of this world good. How does this sound? Fluffy, rich, chocolatey, silky mousse toped with a thin chocolate disk and an elegant, edible gold flake; and eaten on a bench overlooking the Louvre. Pretty dreamy, right? I love and miss Paris for so many reasons, this definitely being one. I tried to make this mousse as close in taste as possible yet making it nutritional as well, and it turned out almost the same as I remember! I can't wait to someday be able to go back, but until then this chocolate mouse will do, as I dream of Paris;) I hope you enjoy this treat when ever your craving a little bit of Paris.

You will notice that these macaroons are not overly sweet, but rather a great sweet treat. I prefer to make my own chocolate sauce so that I know how much sweetener it contains. Enjoy these little chocolate hazelnut bites!
Imagine, if you will, a marriage between traditional pork bacon and beef jerky. That is the flavor you will taste from beef bacon. If you are a bacon lover, as many are, then we encourage you to try beef bacon. It is a delicious way to bring slightly new flavors to a classic breakfast.
These fruit and nut bars are a healthy option for any time you are craving something sweet, as well as a fun food project for you and your kids! You can serve these in bar form, or in bite size pieces.
Curing your own pork belly at home to make bacon is easy! Just follow these simple instructions and you'll be frying up your own bacon in no time! The recipe below is adapted from Michael Ruhlman's recipe from his popular book, Charcuterie.
Kick off the superbowl with these savory bites of bacon heaven. Bacon heaven exists, right?
I don’t want to sound bragadocious, but this is one of the best paleo finger-foods I’ve ever made. When in doubt, wrap it in bacon.
*NOTE: Despite the title, I usually make these with tiny sweet peppers. The sweet flavor balances all the other savory flavors incredibly well. The jalapeños work just as well, but I find their spicy kick get diminished after cooking. Try both and let me know what you like better!
Save that fat - it is delicious. Pour it into a heat-safe container and store in the fridge until you want something to taste extra good by cooking with it.
Once the bacon is all cooled off, I wrap up two slices at a time in paper towels and store them in the fridge for later. To reheat, pop the paper towel bundled bacon in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. My super awesome microwave from the 1980s in the rental property where I live doesn't have a digital display, but I assume it was around that long since that's about how long it takes to reheat in a microwave that shouldn't be kicked off a cliff.
I like doing this on the weekend because by Wednesday it's like hell yeah, I have bacon.
