According to a recent Business Insiders article, Millennials are dining out more than Gen X’ers or Baby Boomers. I am becoming the total product of my generation as I have been super lazy about cooking my own meals.
I find every excuse in the book to not cook, whether it’s the fact that I would be dining alone, it’s too hot, or simply, I CAN’T EVEN.
When our friends at Whole Foods asked me to participate in their Bacon Bash Challenge, I was in a slight panic. I’m so rusty when it comes to my cooking skills and what if I do something stupid?
Then they told me that I would be using recipes from their site. So most of the stress vanished!
I decided the time has come for me to roll up my sleeves and get back into the kitchen where I belong! (Of course, I mean, where I choose to be… #modernfeministproblems)
There are nearly 4,000 recipes on the Whole Foods website. Plenty of these recipes incorporated bacon. I settled on making the Collard Greens and Bacon English Muffins.
