  1. These are a wickedly good combination! Yesterday I went to dinner with my friends, and we were all on your phones while we waited for our check 🙂

  2. Bacon makes everything better, no doubt about that! And this is one recipe to put on my “must try” list. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Mmmm, awesome blondies!!
    And I JUST noticed your note about “shugary” being correct…lol! It made me giggle.

  4. I bought my first computer when my son was four (1989) because I knew he would need to know all about them y the time he started school and I never regretted it. In second grade, he taught his teacher how to do things on the computer as ell as the rest of the class. 

    All teenagers have been the bane of existence for their parents, I think. But, somehow, we all survive and have kids of our own.

    I love all of this technology and can’t understand how people my age (66) don’t all embrace it.  

    And, I can’t wait to try your recipe.

  5. It just makes me laugh when people rant about the internet and how much time people are on technology.  If it had been here 20 or 30 years ago, it would still be the same as today.  People are going to use what is available to them.  We do not have any dictionaries or encyclopedias in our house because google is great!  Our kids do so much of their homework online now too.  But I’m still not convinced on the bacon on my sweets…I still have to have it with cheese and ranch! LOL!  They do look pretty good though!!! Maybe one day you will convince me go over to the bacon/sweet dark side!

  6. Thanks a ton for the shout out–you know I love my salty and sweet and these look awesome! And I hear you about the teen thing. I don’t have any yet (getting closer–eek!) but I did hear a (frankly old) lady complaining about the new generation work ethic the other day in the most sweeping, obscene manner. I really wanted to say something but could tell it wasn’t worth my breath. And yeah I was always plugged into my headphones too. Still might be if I didn’t have to listen for the kids!

    1. UGH. YES, the “sweeping” manners digs deep in me! I usually don’t say anything either, I just come home and rant on the blog, LOL!!

  7. AMEN sista!! Preach it. Technology is part of today’s world. Our kids need to know that life and people have a place, but when they’re going to be on a screen a lot of the time. That’s just how it is today!
     And I’m totally on board with these, you know I am!! Maple bacon heaven!!

    1. Technology isn’t going anywhere…and I’m so over the idea that we need to limit it to basically nothing. My kids do all their reports and studying and homework on a computer. We don’t own a set of encyclopedias, we have Google.

  8. Crazy. Just this morning, I was thinking about my 8-year-old. He’s begging for a phone. Then it dawned on me the exact same thing you said: if I had technology at his age, you bet your grandma’s stockings that I would have played with it! … He’s still not getting a phone. Maybe next year. 🙂 
    ps. Maple and bacon.. YUM!

  9. Preach, Aimee! I teach high school and I talk to my teens all the time about tech use. They’re actually super worried about the generations to come! They admit they’re total addicts, but you’re right. It’s not their fault. We can’t create new technology and then get upset when people use it. And BTW, it’s not like we’re all not addicted to our phones!
    Walkman, ha. I LOVED my Walkman.
    These look super good!

  10. Amen! Love this and totally remember taping songs from the radio 🙂 Love these bars. Bacon gets me every time. Thanks for the link love. 🙂

  11. WOW!!! These are great!! And yes, we were all teenagers once and yet they will drive us crazy just like we just we use to do 🙂

  12. I can’t say too much about the teen subject, because I have zero of them myself. BUT, I do have taste buds. And these Maple Bacon Blondies make their salty-sweet loving selves VERY VERY happy! Pinned!
