Food Type: Candied Bacon

Bacon recipe

Today’s Food Type is Father’s Day appropriate! Need a last minute gift? You know Dad will love something made by his favorite child—and believe me, you WILL be the favorite after he tastes this. The best part? It’s so simple! Creating the typography for this one took longer than making the actual recipe; in case you can’t tell, that is love…design love with a side of bacon.

A special shoutout to my friend Allison for documenting each delicious step! We certainly enjoyed the final product.

Cheers!

Friday Sip & Sit: Mini-Vacay

Image

Today’s Sip & Sit comes from one of my favorite places on Earth. In an effort to soak in some early summer rays and enjoy every bit of relaxation this holiday weekend, the gal-pals and I decided to make the 8-hour trek from Bmore city life to paradise in Topsail Island, NC.

Obviously the beach comes with a plethora of more-than-acceptable alcoholic beverage options, but finding something that is refreshing and easy to drink in the hot summer sun can often be a challenge when contemplating options that have a ton of sugar (also known as a headache waiting to happen). So I’ve settled on this scrumptious and simple choice, which I’ll have in-hand in about t-minus three hours (#5oclocksomewhere).

Rum with Coconut Water & Lime

  • 1.5 oz. high-quality rum
  • 1.5 oz. coconut water
  • Squeeze of lime (appx. 1/4 lime)

Pour all ingredients in a lowball cocktail glass, add one large ice cube, and serve.

Thanks to two-tarts.com for today’s recipe!

Easy as pie! Usually my “sit’s” are places I’m daydreaming about each week. But today, I’m going to cut this post short and go enjoy my vacation, drink in hand. Don’t mind my shameless Ravens plug…

Here’s hoping your holiday weekend takes its time, right now Tuesday is miles away…

Cheers!

Food Type: Spicy Chicken Pizza

Pizza

Today’s Food Type ventures in a slightly different direction. Rather than a typographic restaurant review, I’ve started to dabble in typographic recipe creations! Meet Spicy Chicken and Pepper Jack Pizza.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, there’s nothing better than a nice, hot, homemade pie. I did in fact make this delicious creation, feeling the need to test out the concoction before whipping out a work of art based solely on something that was not-so-tasty. It turned out phenomenally!

Check out that crust, golden brown and baked to perfection. Sigh, give it a whirl! It’s worth it, I promise—would I lie to you??

Cheers,
