Homemade + Healthy Road Trip Snacks: Bacon, Cheddar, Pepper Muffins
Just got back from my week-long road trip! The last leg of driving was killer, but so worth all the great experiences and chances to see family all week! Also, it was my first time to LA and I had a blast and got to eat all the things I ever wanted to eat there (specialty donuts, Seoul Sausage, the original food truck Kogi, etc.).
