Who doesn’t love a Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts? My boys gobble these down when ever they are present. Than again they goggle anything down that has bacon involved. What is it about bacon that people can’t resist.
The challenge about having family favorites is they always ask for you to make the same old same old recipes. I like to try new things and like to make new recipes. I am one of those people who get tired of the same old same old, just ask my family. The joke at my house is, “Oh, we like this, but we will never see it again.” It is true for 2 reasons: 1. I like variety in my food and 2. I am always making new recipes so I can share them with you!
