Caution! You can NEVER have too much bacon at an Altar Server Brunch! And yes, you can bake bacon!

Drop "Que Pasa" as a greeting, now "Kiel Basa"

Frozen butter patties? Put in a 350F oven and WATCH THEM!

Note to self: The bags for the Memorial Day candy......bring duct tape!

You can stop stirring so hard. Brownies with chocolate chips are SUPPOSED to be lumpy!

Seriously? If you are going to buy the Dum-Dum Lollipops that are on sale at Walmart to throw at the parade, MAKE SURE the flavors aren't "buttered popcorn', "bacon', and the ever-popular "?????". Yuch!
