Bacon Noodles

Oh dear. It’s early in the morning, but this recipe has just made me start thinking about dinner. I don’t know who this Young Cooking guy is, but I like the way he thinks. This image reminds me of the greasy, pan fried noodles I’d get at this tiny little Chinese resaurant back home. Only better because, you know, bacon. Bacon noodles are very simply egg noodles mixed with chopped fried bacon and butter. Honestly, the photo looks better to me than the recipe sounds. But I could easily see making this into something fabulous with a few extra...

That’s Beef, not Bacon!

First off, let me apologize to those of you out there trying to chime in on the Bacon Top 5 list. We didn’t realize we were having technical difficulties until some of you told us about it, so thanks. The very able Naseem got right on the case and we are back up and running. So please, give it another go and send us your bacon faves. I can’t live another day without them! Now on to my rant. Someone out there has been talking about this new “bacon iPod case” that’s supposed to keep my iPod all warm...

Bacon Top 5

Last Tuesday at this time I was not getting ready for work. I was sleeping. And then I was reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Later I went for an hour-long bike ride along the beach, followed by wine tasting with friends at a couple of local wineries. Truly a day to remember and repeat whenever possible. And then, to make it even more amazing, a bacon double cheeseburger at the Habit. Definitely in my Top 5 Best Uses for Bacon. In fact, let’s make a list: 1) Bacon-Wrapped Filet – I know, so typical and run-of-the-mill. But it’s...

Vacation Over

Wow, that was one lovely, relaxing week, filled with much eating, bike riding, book reading, wine drinking and movie watching. Brutus had an indulgent week, too, and if you don’t believe me, just check out his bacon hangover in this photo. (I think we may be battling an addiction here.) While I was away, it was reported that the price of bacon has begun to soar. I’m willing to drive less to save on gasoline, but you can forget about decreasing my bacon intake. In fact, I’m going to rush right out and try the newest sensation: Bacon Jerky!...

Bacon Pants

This is Aaron Rowand. He’s a baseball player. He formerly played for the White Sox and the Phillies, and is currently center fielder for the San Francisco Giants. I cannot tell you how often I come across his name during my research, because the ladies have nicknamed him “Bacon Pants.” Am I just a very naive person? What does this mean? What is a bacon...

Smells like Bacon

I don’t know if you remember the series Pete & Pete from early-90s Nickelodeon. That show was a trip, a bit surreal with lots of jokes that went over the intended audience’s heads. I was in my 20s when this show came out, but I worked with kids and caught a number of episodes. The thing I remember most was that Michael Stipe and Kate Pierson both appeared on the show from time to time. But this may have been the most star-studded kids program ever, even more so than Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Both Steve Buscemi and Iggy Pop were regulars, and the list of guest appearances is about a mile long. Anyhow, that was a lengthy introduction to this short but super sweet clip from Pete &...

Bacon what? Oh snap!

I know what you’re thinking. “Those cookies don’t look like bacon.” That’s because the ingenious chef behind this cookie is hiding it from us. It’s a Bacon Snap; much like a ginger snap but made with bacon grease in place of butter or shortening. I’m actually not a fan of ginger cookies, but don’t you think this would be a great idea for Snickerdoodles, the world’s greatest cookie? I happen to be on a very trendy “staycation” this week, and I think I’ve found my next project. Mmm…Bacondoodles and bacon bourbon. I am so Homer Simpson. Thanks to pastry...

What Would Bacon Do?

How many times will Archie McPhee amaze me?! (I really must stop being so surprised every time they come out with YET ANOTHER bacon product.) This nifty little folder acts sort of like a magic eight ball, but with bacon! Need to make a tough decision? Just ask yourself, “What would bacon do?” then spin the wheel. With always-appropriate answers like “taste really good” or “sizzle,” you’re sure to be guided in the right...
