I love ice cream! Have I said that before?

Even though I am a baker at heart, I truly enjoy the process of baking and the creativity and art I experience with it, but if I am craving a sweet treat outside of fruit, I am either going for: cheesecake or ice cream.

Who doesn’t love ice cream, maybe is the better question.

Bacon Maple Mash

016

We are going to start off project ‘Delishmas’ with a mash! For Thanksgiving we did a rutabaga mash, but this month I figured we play with the savory, sweet mix I adore. The original game-plan was to do a Maple Mash. Season it with sea and cinnamon and GO. However, seeing as I am the culinary creator I thought we could add more flavor. Tomorrow I have Sweet Potato Bacon Bites. I decided to bake my sweet potatoes then with the bacon. Letting them cook in bacon fat. Yum love the layering of flavors.
