Creamy Garlic & Bacon Spaghetti

I’m going to let you know about a new favourite foodie site. Once you see this site, you’ll totally fall in love.  So you have to promise you’ll still love me too.  Deal?

I found this lady – rather she found me – in my day job at Desperately Seeking WordPress where I create and support WordPress websites.  I had the privilege to go through every recipe on her site during our project together – and believe me – YUMMINESS.

She is a bacon inspiration.

Yep, you heard that right. Bacon. Inspiration. I heretofor (see! I can be classy) associated bacon with greasy cheeseburgers and heart-stopping breakfasts.  Kate has broadened my bacon horizons.

Kate of FramedCooks fame is the inspiration for today’s Creamy Garlic & Bacon Spaghetti.
