Since it is the first cool night here in awhile I intend to spend the evening cooking. For tonight's baconalia (thank you Dennys marketing dept for coining that phrase so I didn't have to come up with it). I am making cream cheese and pineapple stuffed anaheim peppers wrapped in bacon and tossed in a brown sugar rum glaze. And then I'm going to attempt another bite size appetizer with bananas, peanut butter and bacon. We shall see how this all turns out.

A co-worker made this, and you've never seen grown men stand around in a circle and openly weep over the sheer beauty of something like this.

Because really, sausage is just deconstructed bacon. Bacon' garde, if you will.

A friend of mine made these this weekend. So good! I made her send me the recipe.

Maple Bacon Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen cookies
Ingredients

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 eggs
2 tsp maple extract
2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet morsels
4 thick slices bacon, cooked (see note below)

Instructions

NOTE: Before starting, cook bacon. Lay 4 thick slices of bacon on a small baking sheet lined with foil. Top with 1/3 cup brown sugar. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on piece of foil. Cut into small pieces when cooled and set aside for cookies.
In mixer, beat butter with brown sugar for 4 minutes. Add salt, eggs and maple extract. Slowly add in flour, baking soda and baking powder. Fold in bacon and chocolate chips.
Scoop by large tablespoons onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow to sit on pan 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!

The lady and I went through 1-3 orders of the bacon wrapped chicken appetizers at the Mai Kai last year, each night we were there, three nights in a row.

Is Saturated Fat Bad for Your Heart? A New Study Says Maybe NotBy Beth Carroll

9/23/2014
It’s long been held that saturated fats cause heart disease. But, a new study by a team of international scientists suggests that link has not been proven. The research found that those who ate higher levels of saturated fat, which includes such things as beef, butter, cheese or bacon, did not have more heart disease than those who ate less.

“This study is provocative, but has important caveats,” says D-H cardiologist, Bruce Andrus, MD, MS, who cautions against loading up on saturated fats. “The randomized trial data was limited to supplements of unsaturated fats (i.e. fats derived from plant and some animal sources, especially fish). The studies did not test the impact of eating large amounts of saturated fat, so I would not interpret this study as license to go big on rich food.”

Heart Healthy Food

So, what foods are best to eat? A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that a Mediterranean diet which includes, fish, avocado, nuts, high-fiber grains and vegetable and olive oils (which have some saturated fats) , reduced heart attacks and stroke when compared with a lower fat diet with more starches.

It turns out when people reduce fats in their diet, they tend to eat more refined carbohydrates (i.e. bread, snack foods, sugar) which leads to weight gain, and that can be bad for cardiovascular health.

Live Well/Work Well Health and Wellness Coach Heather Wolfe, MPH, RDN, LD, says it’s okay to eat saturated fats, just don’t overdo it. “The most important thing,” says Wolfe “is to eat a healthy, balanced diet with nutrient dense foods that include at least five portions of fruit and vegetables.”
