Bacon Corn Cakes

Made these corn cakes for Kip’s birthday breakfast. I skipped the salsa, left out the cilantro and added a cup of chopped, cooked bacon. They were great. I’m going to freeze the leftovers and warm them up in the toaster.

Pasta with Bacon and Corn

I made this for dinner tonight. It was really good. We used 4 cloves of garlic and I’d recommend (lots) more bacon. :)

Polenta Pizza

The crust was too soft to pick up.  Mark Bittman recommends making the crust 1/2” thick before baking.  I think mine was too thin, plus I added weight and moisture from the tomato sauce.  It might not have been finger food, but it was fantastic.
