It was Sunday morning. I was productive all morning and then as I was walking my doggie, I started to have a peculiar craving for bacon, which I don't get often. Through most of my life I have avoided bacon because I used to think it was bad for me. But since I've been on the ketogenic diet for the better half of this year, whose main tenet is severe carbohydrate restriction which must be replaced with fat and protein, I have to remind myself that it's okay to eat things like bacon! So in … [Read more...] about Easy Crispy Bacon Recipe
