While I haven't met Carla (Chocolate Moosey), Jen (Juanita's Cucina) or Isabel (Family Foodie) in person, I consider them friends and am grateful that I can share stories with them and the rest of the #SundaySupper community every week. I've drooled (figuratively) over their recipes and often wished I had more people to cook for (and more money) so that I could make everything I've laid my eyes on! Clearly I've been stalking Carla's page these days, given my obsession with her strawberry curd (I still have one thing to show you how to use it for!) but the other day I re-read one of her #SundaySupper posts and knew I had to make a version of it.
I'm a fan of the daytime show The Chew, and when I started making the cookies I figured since there was already bacon, booze and butter in the mix (Michael Symon is proudly fond of bacon and butter), I could give a nod to Daphne Oz' tastes with home-dried fruit, tofu and her notorious psyllium husk. The butterscotch chips were for me, since in my opinion bacon needs something sweet with it (as a kid brunch staples were crisp bacon and homefries with maple syrup!). While Carla is not a fan of butterscotch, I hope she'll appreciate my rendition - I know my butterscotch adoring dad and the ladies at the salon I took the batch to did!
A Special #SundaySupper
This #SundaySupper is celebrated with Katie Workman, author of the Mom 100 Cookbook. Katie believes and promotes the fact that feeding our families doesn’t have to be stressful! Katie shares the one hundred recipes that she found as a working wife and mother of two that are great-tasting and that every mom can rely on, share and feel good about.We are honored to have Katie as our guest during our #SundaySupper live chat at 7:00 pm est. Join us and chat with Katie about being a mom, kids and Spending time Around the Family Table.
The recipes made for this event were chosen from the ones made during the first Mom 100 Event. We could make the recipes verbatim or take our own tack, like I did.
We will be giving away 3 copies of the Mom 100 Cookbooks. This is an event you don’t want to miss!!

1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp coarse sea salt

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

- In a large bowl, beat together the sugars, shortening and butter until fluffy.
- Beat in the corn syrup, tofu, vanilla and butter flavouring.

If you really want to gild the lily here, why not make some sandwiches with Candied Cherry and Bacon Chocolate Chip Ice Cream?
Also, if you've extra dried apples, butterscotch chips and bacon, just melt some dark chocolate with the butterscotch chips and dunk the rings before sprinkling with the bacon bits!
