Hump Days are the worst. I’ve only been at work for an hour but am already itching to leave… 
Taking a short break to reminisce on these Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars that I made earlier this year. Can someone bake me some, please? Will repay you with love and beer.

Bacon & Cheese Bread

If you’re wondering why I haven’t been posting as much lately, it’s because I’ve moved to a new apartment - an apartment with a gorgeous kitchen that has the world’s smallest oven. Sigh. You win some, you lose some.

It’s no surprise that whenever I visit my parents’ house, I head straight for the kitchen and our double convection ovens. I’ve had this recipe in mind for awhile and am so glad to have finally tested it out. The smell of bacon, cheese, and freshly baked bread is just ridiculous!

Can you imagine making a breakfast sandwich out of this? That’s next on my list… 

Click here for the recipe!

(Note: I might have gone a little overboard with the bacon. Will definitely be trying this again with a little less filling…)
