How to Bake Bacon

Need to make 2 lbs (or more) of bacon in 25 minutes?

No problem!  Just set the oven to 400 degrees, lay the pieces flat on baking sheet (i use the industrial type with 1" sides) and bake 25 minutes (more or less, depending on how crunchy you like it).

The slices come out straight and pretty, just like in a restaurant.  And the bacon grease won't pop you in the arm either.  Just tilt the pans to drain the drippings into another container for future use.  Done!

Turkey No-Noodle Soup

 It's that time of year.  You know, the one when everyone gets sick.  So here's a recipe i came up with for a soothing meal that can be eaten when you really don't feel much like eating.

It could also make a good gift to a loved one, friend, or office mate that isn't feeling so awesome.
