Piggy Candy Bar

Guido, posing with our Applewood smoked bacon + Alder wood smoked salt + deep milk chocolate deliciousnessity.

Hi- this is the Mo's Bacon Bar. An 'Exotic' Candy Bar from Vosges Haut Chocolat. Yeah, you read that right. Bacon's in there.

It was salty, chocolate with specks of crunch that were smokey bits o'piggy.

We like piggy!!

I have been wanting one for about a year now, and refused to pay the $25 shipping charge from the Vosges warehouse to me in Burnin' Hot, FLA. Stumbled upon them at Fresh Market and due to it being hot here- we couldn't wait to get home and had to crack into it in the car. I liked it very much. I think it would go fantastic with wine. But then, I'm not a winer. I do bad things like throw ice cubes and V-8 Splash in my red wine, and add fresh fruit to my white wine- so, look away if you see me with onna these and a stem glass, because it's my piggy bar and I'll have it anyway I want it!!

Boom Boom Pie

This morning it was hot, and sweaty in Central FL. I realize that isn't out of the

ordinary for probably 350 days out of the year, but today was just oogie.

Guido had stuff to do as you know from the twitters ( and I was busy inside, enduring a balmy 75* and cleaning up grassy doggie vomit most of the day. But we still gotta eat!!

I had a few bananas that were forming a plot to take over the kitchen, so they got chopped up with some other fruits to make Guido smile when he came in after a longtoughmiserable day workin' in the coal mine of his garage.

I admit to WAY TOO MUCH fooling around on blipfm ( but I'm not such a stoodge that I've ignored the latest from Fergie and the Peas... I've taken to using "Boom Boom" in front of my statements. I must not be the only one, because Guido remarked that he keeps hearing that and he had no idea why.

"Babe- where's the Boom Boom Broom?"

"Honey, are you ready? Lets hit the Boom Boom track!"


Boom Boom Pie

This is more of a cobbler- I found a recipe for it that didn't use a ton of butter or sugar, and had my way with it.

1 C AP Flour
1 C Sugar (not really, I used Splenda)
1 T Baking Powder
1 C Milk (not really, I used Soymilk)
3 T Butter
3 C chopped fruit of your choice

In your 8x8 pyrex, melt the butter in the microwave and flip the oven to 350*

Cut the fruit (I used strawberries, mangos, and those bad mambajambananas)

In a small bowl, make the batter by whisking milk into your dry ingredients. It was ultra lumpy but who cares. (You used the blue bowl like I did, right?)

Pour the batter right ontop of the melted butter (weird, I know, but farkin fantastic for lazy me!)

Top batter with fruit. You may want to put the whole thing on a cookie sheet in case it erupts.

Bake for about 55 minutes. Let cool. Top with fake spray can whipped cream.

Rub belly after eating.
