Organic Bacon Treats

I have to be honest with you, readers. My roommate, Marianne, can be a little stingy with the treats. Sometimes I go to the office with her to help out, and for all my efforts I get, like, two treats the whole day. It’s pretty unfair, considering all the support...

Can you imagine a world with Toaster Bacon?

In 1962, Arnold Barach dared to dream of a bright future, a world filled with ultrasonic dishwashers, electronic teaching machines, and yes, toaster bacon. Of course! It’s genius! Pre-cooked bacon sealed in aluminum pouches that can be easily re-heated by merely...

The Bacon Shop

Internet, I love you. You let people do and say whatever they want, and you don’t judge them for it. If people want to shout their political views, you give them a soapbox to stand on. If they want to share their beautiful artwork, you provide them a virtual...

Why I’m Voting for Barack

Love to eat, but hate to floss? Me, too! I won’t elaborate on my mental process, but the very thought of flossing kind of grosses me out. That’s why the good folks at Archie McPhee have done it again. Bacon Floss allows you to enjoy all the foods you love,...

Bacon Hippos

In the tradition of seeing the Virgin Mary on your tortilla or the Shroud of Turin on your toast, this nice lady saw a vision of hippos in her rashers. And I think this may be a true miracle, because not one but ALL FOUR bacon slices revealed the portly African beast,...

American (Bacon) Graffiti

How bored are kids today when they go out and deface a public phone? And what does it say about our society when they’ve ceased to use swear words or gang affiliations, and begun to idolize bacon? Is it a sign of a lazy, slovenly generation? Or is it totally...

Birthday Bacon

As I mentioned yesterday, we had one heck of a party to celebrate our good friend Naseem last weekend. Wine tasting was followed by wine drinking, followed by many taxi-cabs and occasionally getting shushed by my husband for talking too loud. (Me?!) Dinner was held at...

Kevin Bacon: Side Note

My husband was so mad that I didn’t include Tremors in Kevin Bacon’s list of hits. I was all, “I think it can be lumped in with his late-eighties slump.” And he’s like, “Nuh-uh. Tremors was made in the nineties.” And it turns...

Bacon Feather

Well it’s Monday again, and once again I’m overwhelmed and under prepared. The good news is that we had an awesome weekend celebrating Naseem’s birthday with much wine and bacon-wrapped filet. (Delicious steak photos to follow soon.) In the meantime,...

Wake & Bake Redefined

I used to have a roommate who religiously did the wake & bake, something I found pretty irritating most days, since he had to walk through my bedroom to get to the bathroom for his morning shower. (Worst house design EVER.) And he had to be at work by 7:00 a.m....

The Eternal Struggle Rages On

It’s a question as old as time: to meat, or not to meat. I know lots of vegetarians, and just as many former vegetarians who fell off the old meat-wagon. If you were struggling to control your carnivorous instincts, can you think of any smell that would ruin you...

Bacon Pizza…Hallelujah!

Could there be two more heavenly words than bacon and pizza? And I don’t mean that Canadian variety so popular with the pineapples. I’m talking fat-marbled, skillet-fried, greasy, delicious bacon. According to Serious Eats’ Slice report, Famous...

Bacon Baklava

As you may have guessed by, oh I don’t know, maybe my bacon blog, I am a salty person. I like the occasional sweet, but I’m really more about a good cut of meat, a rich pasta sauce or a buttery baked potato. (I must make an exception for ice cream…i...

Just in time for Father’s Day

I don’t know about your dad, but mine has some typical father-like qualities. Things like a penchant for shop tools and barbecues and red meat. Although Dad and I don’t agree on how we like our bacon cooked, we both agree that breakfast isn’t...

Smart Bacon

It must be a wonderful time to be a vegetarian. Beyond the bounty of fresh and exotic produce available year round, there are some great companies out there making tasty meat alternatives. Heck, I’m not a vegetarian and I love St. Ives Veggie Dogs. So we asked...

Bacon in a Can

Internet, this product has just BLOWN. MY. MIND. I thought it was a joke at first, but no. Indeed this product is real. It’s bacon in a can and you can find it here. The camouflage can and the description “MRE” bring to mind images of men out...
