Bourbon and Bacon Jam

Bourbon and Bacon Jam

Have you ever put something off because you feared failure? Maybe you delayed a difficult conversation because you might say the wrong thing. Or perhaps you avoid wedding dances for fear of looking like a klutz. Or, like me, you decide to put off that first experience of skydiving because “failure” would be quite tragic. 🙂 Well, I have wanted to make bacon jam for years, but have been afraid the end result would be disappointing. But the day of boldness finally arrived.

Even though my mind is arguing with me, some dishes don’t actually need to be topped with bubbly cheese in order to be delicious.

I can’t help it. I’ve never been to Manhattan, and any time spent on the East Coast was when I was very young. BUT I have wonderful memories of making friends in Maine, eating fresh seafood every day, and Dad coming back with huge stories after spending a day on a lobster boat. My take-away from that trip? CLAMS. Steamed, stewed, or chowdered. Clams are the best.
