Many, many moons ago, there was a delicious crop of asparagus at the markets and I had a serious hankering for slab bacon. After checking out what my fave food bloggers were up to, I decided to try the following hash as a welcome home breakfast for S when he returned from visiting his fam back in DC.

It has elements of all of my favorite dishes… bacon, hearty/filling ingredients and a one-pot nature. All good things, especially when combined in a breakfast!

Without further ado, Asparagus & Slab Bacon Hash!

Started out with about 1/2 pound of glorious slab bacon, cut into chunks…

At the moment, I’m confined to the desk  of a low-responsibility temp job, cut off from the time-vortex comforts of my apartment. What better opportunity to finally tackle some of those back blogs that have been hanging around my drafts folder!

I’ll start it out easy… A couple months ago, I decided that I wanted a mandoline and that the first thing I would make would be potato chips (for its relatively inexpensive nature and crunchability). So I embarked on the standard research I perform when considering purchasing yet another kitchen gadget & attempting a new recipe. Combed the food blogs and the specialty kitchen stores.

After much deliberation, I finally settled upon this adorable little number, a plastic & stainless steel situation procured at Sur La Table for a mere $19.99! It’s completely collapsible (for easy storage) and can be manipulated for handheld use or it can be placed directly over whatever receptacle you choose. In a word: perfect.

So I had my mandoline and my recipe. I was ready.

Started out with two giant Russets.

A few months ago, I impulse bought this wonderful brunch book and I’m obsessed with it. The recipes are generally pretty interesting – it’s great at giving you new ideas of how to rock same ol’ – same ol’ breakfast ingredients. And it hasn’t steered me wrong yet!

In honor of Memorial Day (and in preparation for the 10 or so hours of day-drinking I had ahead of me), I ambitiously decided to tackle two lovely recipes. After flipping through the book a few times, I settled on a sweet & a savory:

Lemon Almond & Blueberry Muffins
Hashbrowns w/ Chicken Apple Sausage & Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

The hashbrown piccies are especially pretty (due in no small part to the amazing vine-ripened cherry tomatoes I scored at the Korean produce market), so I’ll start with that one!

For the two of us, I started out with 10 little cherry tomatoes…

And now for the main course of our Easter brunch… I decided to go all out and try this Swiss Rösti, which is basically a really fancy, giant hashbrown or latke. It wasn’t especially difficult, but does have a whole bunch of steps, which can be a little daunting! Without further ado, I’m just gonna jump right in…

The main ingredient is obvs, potatoes…

It’s been cold & rainy for a week and mama needed some chowda. So I made some!

Thanks to RealSimple magazine (which we lovingly refer to as “RealSquare”), I finally came across a recipe for Sweet Corn & Shrimp Chowder – one of my favorite chowders! Yay! I modified it just a bit, on account of RealSimple’s ingratiating habit of under-seasoning, and it turned out super delicious! And relatively inexpensive to boot!

First, I started out with some good hearty ingredients:

1 lb of potatoes (I like red potatoes, but it’s all about preference!)
