Bacon and Sour Cream Chicken Crockpot: UNPLUGGED

Last week, our readers went crazy for the Bacon and Sour Cream Chicken Crockpot recipe we posted on Recipe4Living.com. Obviously we were curious to what all the fuss was about.

What hurts me the most is the neglect I’ve given to the national debut of Dunkin’ Donuts’ newest creation: the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich. Luckily for me, every day is doughnut day– and today seems like a great day to celebrate.
