The following excerpt is from my occasional turn as guest food blogger on A Ruby Reduction. In this entry, I discuss life wtih a seemingly insatiable sweet tooth and attempt to temper my cravings through a rather unusual treat – bacon chocolate chip cookies…
To the surprise of absolutely no one who knows me, I have a confession to make: I am the proud owner of an unbelievably potent sweet tooth.
I know, such a shocking revelation.
For me, temptation from all things sugar is at times too hard to resist. One indulgence in particular, whose appeal I am utterly powerless against, is the cookie.
One cookie leads to two. Two lead to three. Three lead to a number greater than I care to admit.
But at least my craving is satisfied, right? Not exactly.
Every time I venture down this slippery slope, I naively believe this sense of contentment will last. Unfortunately, it turns out to be a mere appetizer, inevitably followed by an entrée of regret coupled with a heaping side of self-loathing (and eventual tummy ache).
To frame this pattern in somewhat simpler terms: sucrose, fructose, glucose, comatose. Ugh.

Anything with bacon is a win for me!
