Bacon-Wrapped Eggs with Polenta

By far the most popular post we’ve ever done was Bacon Wrapped Eggs. I don’t know what it was about that recipe that made everyone’s mouth water so, but we got lots of great feedback and alternative recipe suggestions. Since this seems to be what the...

Giant Bacon

Christmas is awesome. I don’t know much about why we do it or what it’s for, I just know that everyone hangs out at home all week and I get ridiculous amounts of treats and special dinners. Last week alone I ate prime rib twice, had corned beef hash and...

Bacon Justified

Aaaah, the holidays. I just finished a nine-day weekend, and will be back at work for just two days before another five-day weekend. And amazingly, I still feel like I could use more time. I’m pretty confident that I could make a full-time job of not having a...

Bacon as Currency

I’ve always thought that bacon was a highly valuable commodity. My entire life I’ve been hearing about pork belly futures, and honestly, nothing works better as a bribe to get people out of bed. So I wasn’t too surprised to learn that even at a...

Calling all Bacon Tattoos!

So my husband is a real sport. He’s got many tattoos, most of them on a nautical theme as he is, himself, a nautical man. However, in the spirit of supporting me and Naseem and our blogging endeavor, he has volunteered to get a bacon tattoo. This came as a...

Bacon for Pennies

In the current climate of economic FREAKOUT, everyone is looking for ways to cut back, stretch their dollar a little further, maybe get creative with classic low-budget foods like ramen and iceberg lettuce. (Believe me, I’ve been there. When we first moved to...

Potato Pancakes with Cheese and Bacon

When I was a kid, I tried countless times to make potato pancakes with leftover mashed potatoes. My problem was that there was no internet or Food Network when I was a kid, and I never found a real recipe. So, I would just shape a handful of mashed potatoes into a...

Swordfishbaconbones

We all know that bacon is a delight to smell, to eat, to look at. Along with coffee and baking cookies, it’s a feast for the senses that makes me feel instantly warm and happy, not to mention hungry. What I failed to notice all these years was the beauty of...

Pappardelle with Arugula and Bacon

Earlier this year, I decided to stop eating wheat products. Which, although it has made me feel 10 times more healthy, was at first an incredibly difficult transition because I love carbs. Maybe more than I love bacon. And topping my list of carbohydrated favorites?...

Our Bacon Wordle!

Have you heard of Wordle? This is exactly the kind of silly internet program that just tickles me to no end. All you do is go to Wordle ¬†and enter in some content, or even just your website’s url, and Wordle uses your content to make a cool image of your most...

Poor Ireland

And so tonight I plan to raise a pint and make a silent plea for the plight of our Irish friends. May the gods of cattle smile on their gentle herds, and give them back their tasty...

Free Art!

  I love this painting of a Bacon Sandwich by Ali Spagnola. Each of her paintings has this simple, iconic style about it, and here’s something extra interesting about her…she’s giving away her art. Seriously. Check out her Free Paintings link...

It’s Raining Bacon!

From PBFComics.com Just a little update on my weekend: My husband came home after 9 weeks away on business, so I decided to have a second Thanksgiving for obvious reasons. This time when prepping the turkey, I put an entire stick of bacon butter under the skin! (Look...

More Holiday Bacon

If you’re like me, you still haven’t purchased holiday cards to send to your friends and family. Or, maybe you’re considering using the cards you have leftover from last year…mine feature a bottle of Maker’s Mark with a scarf around...

Cobb: The BLT of Salads

I’m only a recent convert to the Cobb Salad. I grew up in a time and place where salads consisted of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers with any variety of gloopy dressings available, preferably something mayo based in my household. I was probably 21 before...

Bacon Rice Krispies Treats

That Mr. Dave at the Ridiculous Food Society just keeps wowing me! You may remember that in October he made sausage entirely out of bacon, a feat heretofore unheard of. So of course I have to check in on him every once in a while and see what he’s up to. Seems...

Thanksgiving Day Review

Wow, Thanksgiving was fun. What I remember of it, at least. It certainly was a day of indulgence, and enjoying good friends. My gang of merry revelers all pitched in to make it a day of joy-filled memories (and black-outs.) As Naseem mentioned in her Thursday post,...
