Cinnamon Apple Pecan Bread

I am a deeply impatient person. When I set my sights on something I want it as quickly as possible. And, if that goal happens to be one I have set for myself nothing less than perfection will do. This compulsion can be a good thing – I am driven and proactive. However, when things go wrong, my impatience and drive can lead me to some very dark places.

Maple and Bacon Muffins

I am a bacon devotee.  I’m not sure if you have noticed, but I love the stuff!  That’s why when I was challenged to create a sweet and savoury bacon muffin I jumped at the challenge!   But, this is a tale of sadness, regret, but eventual triumph!  Two months ago, on a cold January evening, I was contemplating new ways to use bacon in my baking when my husband asked, “Can you make a bacon cupcake?”  A cupcake? ...
