Shrimp and Bacon Cabbage Rolls… and My Favorite Secret Ingredient

Ok, I guess writing about it on my blog makes the "secret" ingredient a "not-so-secret" ingredient, but it's so good I just had to share it.  One of my favorite things to use while cooking in the kitchen is… bacon drippings.  You know, the oily, fatty goodness left in the pan after you cook your bacon. Pure flavor!  In fact, I might just start calling it that, because it has a certain ring to it... "Add 1 Tablespoon of pure flavor."  Yep, I like it.

Indian Spiced Lamb Meatballs with Masala Sauce

I have recently become aware of an interesting problem, if I should even call it a "problem" at all.  I realized that I have so many hobbies that it has been very difficult for me to make time for all of them (blogging being one of them).  In my opinion, this is a great problem to have, because it tells me that I am living a full and satisfying life… Which brings me to my point about the importance of one's passions and hobbies.
