I’ve seen a lot of bacon wrapped recipes lately and it got me thinking about the bacon eggs I’ve made previously. I’ve made many versions including a fried bacon eggs and bacon egg cups, but I’ve never just wrapped an egg in slices of bacon.
I didn’t realize how small eggs are until I tried to wrap some bacon around them. It took a little effort, but I finally got the hang of it. I love how the eggs look wrapped in the red meat.
Because apparently cupcakes are not enough, Sprinkles has decided to venture into the ice cream making business. The first Sprinkles Ice Cream debuted in Beverly Hills, next door to its Sprinkles Cupcakes shop, and a second one just opened in Newport Beach.
At the San Diego cupcake store, there is no ice cream served, even though I constantly see little signs advertising the Sprinkles ice cream. I always find the sign annoying since they don’t actually carry any ice cream.
Anyhow, I was a little dubious about a Sprinkles Ice Cream. Los Angeles has so much good ice cream, would Sprinkles be as worthy of a competitor? Well after seeing how popular it’s been and the generally positive reviews, DH and I stopped in on our last Los Angeles road trip.
Luck was clearly on our side. The Beverly Hills area is notorious for traffic and sparse open parking spaces. Yet when we went, we found a spot right in front, with 50 minutes still in the meter! In addition, there was barely any line (only about 5 people in front of us) which I was surprised about because I’d read that there is constantly a long wait.
Well right after we got in line, people started to pile behind us. By the time we got our ice cream, the line was more than 20 people deep! We were definitely super lucky.
It’s officially Spring! Though it doesn’t always feel like it. Every morning this week has been perpetuated with light rain and cloudy skies.
To welcome Spring, I made matcha green tea milkshakes.
My matcha recipe collection has been seriously neglected lately. I haven’t stopped loving matcha flavored foods. I still order and buy them whenever available. I just haven’t been baking much with matcha, though I plan on rectifying that.
