As much as some of us don’t want to accept it, Fall is here. September 23, 2015 is the official first day of autumn, which means school has started, the nights are getting cooler, and the leaves are falling. It’s actually my favorite season, but mostly because it’s all about comfort food!
This year, I’ve once again set out on a Bacon Quest to find the most creative dishes made with bacon, the true epitome of a comfort food. You’ll not only hear about my culinary adventures in this Fall Food & Fun section, but you’ll find reviews by food critic David Hammond, unique items you can buy locally, and events for any member of the family.
