budino love...

Budino-cucina-urbana-barbuzzo

I'll admit it. I've found a new love in a dessert. Lately, I've been seeing many a budino on the menus of some of my favorite restaurants. A budino simply means "pudding" in Italian, but there's something about a budino that elevates the pudding of your lunchbox days to a new delicious adult level. My favorites: the Chocolate Budino from Cucina Urbana in San Diego {left}, the Salted Caramel Budino from Barbuzzo in Philadelphia {right}, and the Butterscotch Budino from Pizzeria Mozza in LA {not shown}. It's seriously one of the best things to fill up a spoon since ice cream.

If you're up for trying to make one yourself, here's a recipe for Pizzeria Mozza's Butterscotch Budino and one from Leslie Sarna. As for me, I lack patience for any desserts that take over an hour to make, so I'll gladly continue to consume them at my favorite stops!

bacon jam goodness...

Bacon-jam-blue-cheese

If you've never had bacon jam before {and assuming you eat and like bacon} then you've pretty much got to stop whatever you're doing now and get {or make} some STAT. Bacon jam is like savory, sweet, delectable morsels of bacon in spreadable form. I bought a jar from Perishable in LA, and it's been the shining star of my condiments shelf ever since. I put it on toast {topped with eggs, blue cheese, and/or avocados}, on burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, scrambled eggs, apple slices...really, anything {I bet it would be amazing on maple ice cream too!}.

If you don't have an artisanal or gourmet shop near you that sells it, this version from Skillet Street Food and this recipe will give you more reasons to salivate.
