It all started when Sharon and I were at the Original Pancake House and I saw bacon waffles and pecan waffles on the menu. I immediately thought, “Why no bacon pecan waffles?”. I even tried to order one and they said it would not turn out right. Jump ahead to now and Sharon and I have a Belgian waffle maker that was a wedding present from our friends Matt and Julie. I used the recipe for pecan waffles that came with the machine and just substituted some fresh cooked bits of applewood smoked bacon from Bashas for some of the pecans.

Tonight I had the opportunity to make one of my favorite recipes, Fettucine with Swordfish. I discovered this southern Italian comfort food on the Everyday Food website a couple of years ago. Craving this meal for a couple of weeks now, Jay called around to all the local grocery stores in Flagstaff looking for swordfish. No luck. Since we ended up coming to Phoenix, we saw our chance and were able to go to Whole Foods to get all the best ingredients. Mmmm…..
Check out the recipe and a great instructional video on how to make it, HERE.
