I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Sweet Potato with Bacon

This savory and sweet side dish pairs well with chicken, duck, pork or turkey dinner. But would go equally well on your breakfast or brunch plate! 

4 slices bacon, chopped
1 large sweet potato, diced
sprinkle of cinnamon
2 tbsps maple syrup
vegetable oil

Cook the bacon in a non-stick skillet on medium heat, then remove to a plate. Reserve 2 tbsps of bacon fat in the skillet. If you don't have enough fat then top it up with vegetable oil.
Add the diced sweet potato to the pan and sprinkle with cinnamon. Toss together and cook 10 minutes.

Stir occasionally but let them sit a bit to brown nicely on the sides. After 10 minutes cover the skillet and cook another 4 or 5 minutes or until tender.

Return the bacon to the pan and add the maple syrup.

Serves 2 (but truthfully, I ate it all myself!! 😃🐷)
