My Version of Bacon Explosion

I have seen so much post about the bacon explosion yet i didn't see anything with veggies stuffing.  So instead of using bacon as my stuffing inside my sausage i decided to use different kind of vegetables.  I think having a lot of bacon as a waives is enough for us. 

First thing i did was chooped all the veggies that i want to used.  Then i waives my bacon which is shown below.

Second i  form the sausage a little smaller than my bacon waives, then i seasoned it with bbq sauce, pork rub dry oregano and italian seasoning.  (Remember to use foil or wax paper underneath your sausage to make it easy to roll)

After i roll the sauce and made sure it was secure, i put it on the top of the bacon as you see on the picture below.  Then i roll the bacon up and walla it was ready to bake.

This is how to look after everything is finished.   It's a pretty thing and golly it's delicious.

I baked this for two hours in half on 350, and i must it was delicious.  My kids and husband was loving it.  

Ingredients i used:

2 lbs bacon
4 lbs sausage ( i made sure i have enough to use nothing wrong on having extra)
3 carrots ( I used the peeler to have the desire slice i want) cut the veggies the way you want it.
1 big green bell pepper chopped
1 onions chopped
4 tbsp pork rub
2 tbsp dry oregano ( add more as needed)
2 Italian seasoning
1 cup bbq sauce ( i made my homemade bbq sauce but you can use any bbq sauce you desire)


1. Slice all your veggies first, and make sure that your counter top is clean because assembling this meal required a lot of space, ( well at least for me it does since my kitchen is a bit small)

2. Then i waives my bacons, you can go on youtube on how to waives bacon it's pretty easy.
3. Then brush the bacon with BBQ sauce, season it with the pork rub, Italian seasoning and the dry oregano.
4. Flatten your sausage on the top of foil make sure its not too wide for your bacon, add the veggies and roll it.
5.  Once it's roll add it on the top of the bacon then roll it again but this time with the bacon. Make sure you roll it well.  You can grill this or baked, i choose to baked mine that way  i won't be wasting so much gas.  So what i did is i put it on the baking pan with holes on it that way the juices from bacon will not soak my bacon explosion.

So i used a lasagna baking pan to catch all the juices.  This meal will definitely make your house smells delicious.  I baked this on 350 deg, but make sure you check on it every now and then.  Enjoy and let me know what you think.  You can create this anyway you want, that's what cooking is all about.

Cucumber Salad in a Jar

This salad is very easy to make and healthy as well.  My husband loves it, the first time i made this i wasn't really sure how we gonna like since it use so much vinegar.  But then once it sit for few days and the flavor all the veggies, we are amazed how delicious it is.  We eat this during snack time, or even as a side for sandwhich or tacos.  Honestly we pretty much eat this on any meal, except breafast lol.  Anyway down below is the recipes of this creation of mine.  I got this idea from one of the lady in pinterest, i was looking for something to do with all the cucumbers that we harvest from our garden and i found this recipe.  Thank you for the idea Recipes We Love.

Ingredients I Used:

12 cucumbers (The original recipes called for 4 but i triple this recipes)
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
2 green bell pepper ( i used two since it was small peppers)
2 tsp of red pepper flakes
6 cups vinegar
3 cups sugar
1 tsp parsley ( the original recipe was calling for celery but i didn't have any celery so i used parsley and it says great)
2 small red onions slice


1. In a big pot add vinegar, sugar, and the red pepper flakes.  Bring to boil, and after it boiled removed from heat and add two handful of ice cubes. 

2.  Slice all the veggies, and once you are done slicing all the veggies mix them all together sprinkle with some pepper and salt to taste.  Add the mixture in the jars and once the sauce is cool down start pouring it in each jars. 

On mine after I poured all the sauces, i made sure that all the air is out, so i use a plastic spatula to go around the jar.  Then i clean the rim, and put the lid.  The original recipes said this can be refrigerated for two months.  That if it will last that long in your house, mine only last for two weeks lol.  Well hope you enjoy this simple easy recipe yet delicious.

This is my first time making homemade hot wings and I must say it was a hit. We called this recipe "Williams Hot Wings" instead of hooters wings.

This is perfect for all gathering, and i am sure people will keep asking for more. Homemade hot wings is awesome.

Done eating

I had a late lunch so now i am thinking on taking a little nap before i continue working.  I have a lot of things to do later.  I feel like a zombie for right now hahahahhah.  Not much energy left in me, i don't know why but i just get tired to quickly now since i got pregnant.  But what can i say being pregnant is a blessings from above and i cannot complain a thing about it.  I am very thankful that he blessed us with this pregnancy. 
The radio staggers against the backspace!

Cabbage with Kimchi

This is really delicious and easy, i just chop some cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, onions, and kimchi.  I have never tried adding kimchi on my cooking before.  But with this particular recipes it actually taste really good, i was even surprised.  Our friend from brought us some kimchi and from watching korean cooking show i have seen that they like to include the kimchi on a lot of their recipes.  So i thought i'd give it a try, and i must say i will do it again.  It was very delicious and there was hardly a left over on this meal.

New Pet Bed

I think our baby rowdy is needing a new pet bed for the house. The one we have right now is going to our studio, and i sure don't want to carry it back and fort. I told my husband that maybe we should buy a pet bed for the house, something that is small and something that is easy to clean. I have seen a lot of nice pet bed online and i am thinking on buying one or two for our dog that way she can sleep a lot better. The bed she have now is just big for the space we have in the house, it will probably fit perfectly in our studio. Plus i can get different color of pet bed..... so i am excited to get a new one... something to match our furniture.

Dried Fish

Oh this dried fish didn't last me for a long time.  They are so tasty and it's hard to resist the... I probably eat all the dried fish that was given to me within three days hahahha.  I had a squid also which is awesome, my husband just looked at me while i was eating these dried fish but i am happy that he understood though.  His definitely very supportive in whatever i eat but sometimes there are few things that i can't eat infront of him because i don't want them to be sick hahahahha. Dried fish is not one of them though.  Anyway, that's all for now.


I am no expert like i said when it comes to music... while looking for something to do online i found this article about the selmer at WWBW. It's the most colorful lineage in the landscape of instrument. I am sure some people knows more than i know. If you want to read more about selmer don't hesitate to visit the link i added. It's very helpful and i am sure you will enjoy what you can find and read. That's all for now and you all enjoy the night.
