Bacon Friday

I know it’s Black Friday and all our regular readers are out there doing their part to fix the economy! For those of you who do your holiday shopping online, don’t forget to check out the RBS Bacon Store for all your quirky gift needs. Remember: No one ever expects bacon! And if we don’t have what you’re looking for, pay a visit to our good friends at the Grateful Palate. Gotta love their ability to pair bacon and wine in one tasty gift basket. It’s been a long and lovely holiday, and we’ll be back with real posts...

Holiday Bacon

So after years of Marianne raving about Thanksgiving at her house, I am finally going to be attending her feast today.  I was so excited yesterday (and still am today!) that I spent the evening creating a gift for Marianne  to thank her for being such a great friend and for cooking Thanksgiving dinner for about a dozen Santa Barbara orphans. Duh – of course it was a bacon gift!!! I sewed up these two little munchkins you see in the pic above with felt, stuffing, pipe cleaners, a glass of wine, and two kittens who discovered pipe cleaners...

Bacon Curls

I can’t believe that we missed this great bacon find! From the talented and creative mind of Megan at NotMartha.org, we present Bacon Curls in a variety of shapes and sizes. Megan is the genius who brought you the Bacon Cup, which was one of our very first posts. And although the cup is massively impressive, it requires much more time and work than I have on a typical party-prep day. The bacon curl, on the other hand, I think I can manage! Make sure to visit NotMartha.org for a full set of instructions. These would make for a...

Amazin’ Cajun Bacon

Even before bacon exploded in bits all over the internets, I have to admit I considered myself somewhat of a bacon connoisseur.  However, my proof of expertise back then was that I had tried all the local grocery store brand bacons and concluded that the Vons brand was the best, hands down, case closed. Seriously? I had no idea. This whole bacon blog business has opened my world up to a deliciously intimidating world where there are endless flavors of bacon, and endless bacon flavored you-name-its.  Case in point: Bourbon Street Cajun Country Bacon. Dry rubbed in all sorts...

Forget James Bond. Foo Fighters Love Bacon!

Everyone has been buzzing lately about how the newest James Bond, Daniel Craig, just luuurvs his English bacon. So much, in fact, that he has it flown in while on location in Spain or wherever for his daily breakfast. I’m sure many people find that fascinating, but I’m too busy loving the Foo Fighters for giving me a new name for bacon: (You’ll also notice the term “chicken boobs” a couple paragraphs up.) This entire catering rider is jam-packed with delightfully silly requests, and a few that really make you wonder. Like, what’s with all the socks and t-shirts?...

Bacon Hitler

  It’s a frightening world we live in. You never know from whence the next despotic ruler will spring. And today we can report, one has sprung from bacon. Worse than the Soup Nazi, it’s Bacon Hitler. And he’s wearing a v-neck sweater. Occult-obsessed megalomaniac meats meets jaunty fashion. Thanks, Gabe, for bringing this shocking news to our attention. Via...

Maple Bacon Coffee

I think there are people out there who consider coffee to be their morning fuel. Can’t get started without it. Must have caffeine to function. I’m fortunate not to be in this classification. I no longer drink coffee every day and, in fact, sometimes go weeks without a cup. But when I do drink it, it’s usually just to delight my senses and treat myself. It’s given me a deep appreciation for the coffee or espresso drinks that I enjoy, and allows me to go all out when I do indulge. This lovely Maple Bacon Morning blend from Boca...

Native Bacon

If you don’t know the work of Dan Goodsell yet, then you are in for a world of goodness. An Imaginary World, no less. In the Imaginary World, you can follow the adventures of Mr. Toast and his many friends. Like Lemonhead. And an egg. And a strip of bacon. Check out the archive of comics, especially the many holiday themed features. Super fun. Today we’re celebrating the harvest season with this friendly reminder of our Native American friends who made survival in the New World possible. One fall semester many moons ago, I read Bury My Heart at...

Bacon-Wrapped Phone

When I walk down State Street during the day, it seems like 50% of the people I encounter are listening to their iPods. (Or whatever. I call every mp3 player an iPod, just like I call all colas Coke and all tissue Kleenex.) If all those people are like me, their iPods are getting scratched and dinged and losing that beautiful, clean white look that makes Apple products so visually appealing. Whatever will we do? BACONATE IT! Wrap your iPod in the warm embrace of bacon-print felt and it will feel warm and cozy all winter long. Yeah, I...

Bacon-Wrapped Thanksgiving

We are getting very close to Thanksgiving…just 10 days to go! I can’t wait to go shopping for all the necessary ingredients, and sit down and create my cooking schedule. I usually do my pies the night before, start making rolls first thing in the morning, and then get all veggies prepped in advance. I make stuffing while the oven is pre-heating for the turkey, and get to relax during most of the turkey-baking time. It’s a decent system, although it wouldn’t kill me to learn to delegate. That’s my best piece of Thanksgiving advice: let your guests help...
