Amazon Review By Rebecca G.on April 16, 2016.
"We got this book as kind of a joke stocking stuffer type thing for Christmas and let me tell you – we actually use it and it is pretty good! There are a number of recipes in here that you wouldn’t think of if you had a pack of bacon to use and a pantry of odds and ends but let me tell you – they work and they work really well.
We’ve actually made dishes out of this to serve at parties. Like formal family type parties and they got GREAT reviews. Everybody thought that we were culinary geniuses to think up a recipe like this. Little do they know we are dirty recipe stealing thieves mwahahaha!
Just kidding – we told them about this book and they thought it was hilarious. When we told them about some of the other recipes in the book they genuinely seemed interested. It actually started a very nice conversation and now whenever we are hosting something we make sure to make something from this book and to leave the book on display somewhere. Especially with new people it serves as a great icebreaker or conversation starter. We will routinely have new parents over for play dates with our toddler and this gives us a good chance to talk about something other than each other’s kids.
The recipes are quite easy too. The peanut butter bacon cupcakes are to die for. You wouldn’t think of it at first but the fat and salt go so well together to make an awesome sweet and savory cake. You should get this book just for that recipe!"
