Bring home the Bacon and Bake It! For some reason the flavor of the bacon is so much better when you bake it then when you fry it. It happens to be so much better for you as well. It is easy and you don’t have to wipe up grease splatter all over your kitchen. I always keep a layer of foil in the bottom of my oven for easy clean up…just by swapping out an old sheet of foil for a new one.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Place a wire cooling rack on top of a jelly roll pan (or something under to catch drippings) or use a broiler pan.
Place bacon (thick cut holds up better for baking) in a single layer on top of cooling rack or broiler pan.
Place in oven for 20 minutes or until desired doneness.

I enjoy cooking healthy and light. A favorite place for me to try recipes is Cooking Light. I even try to go lighter then their light. In this recipe I substituted most the sugar for Splenda Sugar Blend and used Land O Lakes Light Butter. I simply left out the almonds in the crust because of family preference.
So check out my version of Strawberry Cream Tart recipe from Cooking Light’s Strawberry Almond Cream Tart May 2010 issue. If you are a diabetic, my site will give you hope that you can make desserts that are low in sugar and high in taste. Let me know what you think and enjoy the season of strawberries.

Recipe: Sugar N’ Spice Nuts
Summary: Nuts with a sweet and spicy kick. This is a treasured find from a holiday edition Taste of Home . Great for giving as a gift, in a gift basket or serving during the Fall football games and Christmas holidays. I make mine on my baking stone and it seems to work the best.
