Hi Lisa... that's the problem... it never stops with a bite or two, which become three, four, five...

Lisa, I loved all the ingredients but if I made that I would need to buy a new chair again.... I busted the last one, hence I have been cutting back on all the wonderful cheese:)Endre

Morning Lisa.

I like simple, this sounds so good and simple to prepare.  T-time is just a few hours away.

Oh, my sinful indulgence - CHEESE! That is my comfort food, my celebratory food, my every-day food...and it's also going to be the death of me! LOL

Seriously, that looks delish and I believe I've had it with bagel chips and it is truly divine - the bacon just makes the dish even dreamier!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Lisa!
