    Diary of a Non-Cook: Bacon Wrapped Dates

    It’s all in the name… Although the name literally tells you exactly what to do, I was still interested to see how a Book Club (BC) friend made these. I’ve had them before, but at the BC I hosted, Lynsi brought these and I’m pretty sure I ate about ten of them. She mentioned she brought them because they were Whole 30 approved. I didn’t really care about that, I just loved how delicious they were. Bacon around anything is pretty damn delicious. So, when I was assigned an appetizer for Easter, I knew I wanted to make these.

    WIAW – I HATE Pinterest!

    #NailedIt Please let me explain before you stop reading. My hatred stems from its ability to give me  false hope that what I find on a stupid “board” will be easy to make. And also because the title tells me so! Psh, lies…all lies! I’m sure some of you readers will immediately gasp at my title of the blog today, but seriously…let’s be real! Pinterest is kinda dumb, but kind genius as well, which is probably why I despise it! Boards and pins, even more stuff social media stuff that I have to keep up with. Thanks, Jenn! Today’s WIAW is a little different that what Jenn had originally intended this link-up to be, but…
