sheer ‘BLiS’ with sweet potato pancakes

December 23rd, 2007 · 1,188 Comments


i know just what you’re thinking… you look at this and you wonder, where’s the bacon? and really, i’d have thought the very same thing. and i even had some speck in the freezer and bacon in the fridge – and well, i just didn’t. because this was dessert. and yes, i know what you’re thinking now too. but i forgot to make/buy some vanilla ice cream. apologies all around. hey. wow. i just this second thought about a chocolate with bacon ice cream served right alongside this dish. chocolate would be good here … and i’ve heard ‘ruhlman‘ talk about maple bacon ice cream – but i already had the maple thing covered. and i am saying C.o.v.e.r.e.d. enter: BLiS


BLiS Bourbon Barrel Maple Syrup is aged in specially selected twelve to eighteen year old single barrel bourbon casks. The intense flavors of butterscotch, vanilla, charred oak and the seductive bourbon take maple syrup to new heights. Celebrated chefs around the world use this unique product, and of course it s one of Oprah s favorites.

ok. feel free to scratch that last line, but DAMN! what a friggin description! and i too have had ‘BLiS’ in a few high end restaurants over the past two years in little bits on various meats and desserts. but never have i had a bottle to call my own, to use unabashedly on whatever turned me on. the makers produce whatever they produce and then it gets sold and you wait for the new batch. twice i got caught in the availability grey area, and i am just telling you that this is one of those instances when to perservere is worth it – and using more ‘BLiS’ really is – more. and much more is aok too. and here is where i may disappoint you. my pancakes are not "homemade". i’ve talked about one of my guiltier pleasures before. bruce’s sweet potato pancake mix. this storebought, pre-packaged product is a big hit around here. cary loves it. it’s even close to rice pudding in his book although he prefers the stuff in its lesser (imho) waffle format. and now i ask you this, i mean does EVERYONE who writesthesegreatblogs i read – do you all EVER just grab a mix? cause i don’t. except this one. and you should too. i get ours at ‘the fresh market‘. just add water. love it. next time with chocolate bacon ice cream. or at the very least, ‘BLiS’ whipped with ricotta cheese and chocolate sauce drizzled on top.

pinky swear…

    wrote: “The goal of the feminist movement is for a woman to have autonomy over her own body without any interference from the the government or anyone else. A woman’s decision to terminate a pregnancy is her own and the government should have no right to enquire about why she is making that decision.”Translation from femspeak: “The goal of the feminist movement is the power of life and death over the children they conceive.”

    / I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    The caption for last picture which was taken by Kevin Carter reads as though he took his own life because of the bad feedback he received as a result of the photo, where in fact his suicide letter only mentioned his struggle with money and how he was haunted by the depressing scenes he had witnessed over his years in the field.

    Har aldrig ägt, och kommer troligtvis aldrig att äga, en Borelliskjorta, sÃ¥ det överlämnar jag till nÃ¥gon annan.Men angÃ¥ende de 35% extra procenten rea, antar jag att de är plaggen som ligger under ”Clearance”-sektionen. Även om alla plagg är rejält nedsatta ligger inte alla plagg under Clearance.

    Adele Hite, MPH RD says: “This is an excellent point & explains why paying more for “healthy” food is a rip-off all around.”Once we are mainstream, offal and fatty meat cuts will become the most expensive parts. Just as nowadays recycling toilet paper is more expensive.

    Lecture très agréable, Messire Guillaume, j’ai hâte de voir ces 2 là sur le grand circuit, d’autant qu’ils semblent avoir un jeu atypique, en tout cas différent du tennisman moderne. Depuis le temps qu’on nous promet du sang neuf !

    સંતોષ એ મીઠી રિવાર્ડ કોઇ શંકા નથી, પરંતુ ખરેખર ખૂબ જ તે નથી પડકારરૂપ? કોઇએ એક વાર કહ્યું હતું કે,, “તેઓ મને જોઈને હસવા લાગ્યા, કારણ કે તેઓ મને અલગ શોધવા, હું તેમને અંતે હસવું કારણ કે તેઓ બધી જ છો.”
