Bacon Scarves!

Well, here it is, the last day of September and fall is sweeping over the land. Here in Santa Barbara, the evenings are getting cooler, and we’re having occasionally grey days…in between all the sunshine. But since I love autumn, I’m already pulling...

Do You Heart Bacon?

Well then, have I got the shirt for you! No Star Clothing has come up with this brilliant design, based on a wicked idea for a tattoo. I really love this t-shirt. I’m not usually the type to wear my views and opinions on my person or car, but this graphic seems...

Bacon & Eggs Cufflinks

As I mentioned yesterday, there are times when you want to step up your fashion game a bit. Whether you’re interviewing for a job, have a public speaking engagement, or are walking your daughter down the aisle, you still want to express yourself while looking...

Bacon Necktie

Let’s say you have an important day ahead of you, maybe a job interview. You want to dress smart to impress your potential employer, but you don’t want him or her to think you’re a stuffed shirt. How do you express your immense capability and still...

Bacon Beer! Yes!

Since beginning this blog, I’ve been looking around for bacon beer. Of course, right? I’ve found so many different alcohol/bacon combinations, it seemed logical that somewhere out there someone had put bacon and beer together. But alas, my past searches...

Jalapeno Bacon

As I mentioned during the Bacon Day posts, Rocco from BaconFreak gave us A LOT of bacon. We had already purchased many pounds of bacon ourselves, so were not able to use it all on Bacon Day. Fortunately, this means that we get to sample it at our leisure and tell you...

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

OMG! These look so good, and so easy to make. The brilliant Mr. B over at Bacon Today came up with this crafty idea, and I cannot wait to try it. Basically, you buy a tube of pre-made cinnamon rolls, unroll each one, place a strip of bacon inside and roll it back up....

Bacon Boy T-Shirts

Alexa from International Bacon Day wrote to tell me that Austin, the creator of Bacon Boy, is not doing well. As you may have read, Austin has leukemia and recently received a bone marrow transplant to battle the disease. Let’s all keep our hopes high for this...

Bacon & Sage Cornbread

The October ’08 edition of Bon Appetit magazine has this wonderful looking recipe for Cornish game hens with a corn bread and sage stuffing. Coincidentally, my husband had the urge to buy Cornish game hens over the weekend, so I’ll get to try this recipe...

WowBacon

I’ve seen a lot of microwave bacon cookers in my day, but most of them are about the same. They’re usually a tray with poles or slats to drape the bacon over, allowing the grease to drip off and the bacon to (supposedly) become crisp in the process. The...

Bacon Jerky

Lest ye think that my devotion to this blog is insincere, I’ll tell you about my waking thoughts today: Bacon Jell-O. That’s what I was dreaming about when I woke up, and I thought, “Yes! Perfect! I’m sure I can find a photo of a perfectly...

Bacon as a Dare

It turns out that bacon grease is often the center of bets, dares or penalties, generally propagated by individuals between the ages of 16 and 24. If you go to YouTube and enter “bacon grease” you’ll come up with a surprising number of videos of...

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

You know what goes great with bacon? (Ummm…everything?) Yeah well, this time I was thinking of bacon’s cousin, the pork roast. I’ve seen a lot of recipes lately for bacon-wrapped pork roasts of various cuts, but I must admit the pork tenderloin makes...

Bacon Day: The Swag!

I promise today is my last day posting about Bacon Day 2008, even though it’s worth talking about for another week. We were fortunate at the last minute to get a “swag sponsor” by way of BaconFreak.com. Not only did he provide us with some tasty...

Bacon Day: A Tribute to the King

Chrissy & Smiley: Two people you cannot help but love. These friends (and avid readers) brought their own special bacon tribute to the party…a tribute to the king of all bacon lovers himself: His Holy Elvis. As seen in this photo, bacon pairs up with peanut...

Bacon Day: The Bourbon

So I thought I would give Bacon Bourbon another try, because it absolutely had to be shared on Bacon Day. I had high hopes as I was using my favorite bourbon this time, Maker’s Mark. It has a warm, slightly smoky flavor to begin with, so seemed perfect for the...

Bacon Day: The Recipes

Bacon Day gave us a great excuse to try and share some of the recipes we’ve talked about on this site. The first, which I believe may be entirely original to Royal Bacon Society, was the Bacondoodle. It began with this basic Snickerdoodle recipe, but in place of...

Best Bacon Day Ever!

Okay, so it was our first Bacon Day ever. That doesn’t make it any less spectacular. The Royal Bacon Society hosted a backyard party that will take me a good week to fully cover. It was a ton of fun and ridiculously delicious. We prepared seven pounds of bacon...
