Behold, Bacon Man!

You thought Burning Man was impressive? Forget about it, Bacon Man probably took just as long to build and is significantly more delicious. Via FoodProof and NetDiva’s Flickr...

Bacon Explosion – No Joke!

I love when one idea snowballs into several others, and the bacon mat has been a major springboard for lots of bacon creations over the past few months. Of course there was the bacon cheese roll, followed by the bacon, chicken, cheese roll. And now this: the Bacon...

Swine & Wine

Great news from Rocco at Bacon Freak! There’s been a lot of talk lately about whether you can pair bacon with wine, and if so, how? RBS did just such a thing at our Bacon Day party, and it was a fun experiment to share with friends. I know Alexa over at...

Bacon Wrapped Elvish Cookies

I’m loving bloggers this week. Yesterday, of course, was a heart-attack recipe from SOT, and today I have to draw your attention once again to the Ridiculous Food Society of Upstate New York. Mr. Dave constantly cracks me up, and last weekend he did it again. He...

Bacon Chicken Cheese Roll

By now you’ve all seen Foodproof’s Bacon and Cheese Roll. This thing is a modern marvel and fully deserves the wild acclaim it has received. I mean, seriously, that was brilliant. But, as with all great ideas, this one has already been one-upped. I give...

Bacon Watch 2009

I thought that headline sounded more dramatic and exciting with the year thrown on the end, like a breaking news story. Which I suppose this is, because hey! It’s an actual bacon watch! As in, a watch made of bacon! Well, sort of. Yes, Archie McPhee has done it...

Review: Cheddar Bacon Gordita Crunch

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great Martin Luther King Day, and that you’re having an even better Inauguration Day! I’m starting the day off with a sad confession: I’ve been really bad about trying the hippest new bacon creations for your edification,...

You. Just. Got. BACON’D!!

I don’t often write about Kevin Bacon on this blog, due in part to the La Coronilla Treaty of 2008 (see the comments section.) And so I’m not going to say much about this clip from funnyordie.com, except that it is AWESOME with a capital AWE. Happy Friday....

More Cupcakes…with Bacon!

Here in the West, I think Sprinkles has become the cupcake standard. They make huge, beautiful cupcakes in lots of amazing flavors with every kind of colorful confetti topping you can imagine. Soon they’ll be expanding across the country and across the world,...

Bacon Edamame

Once again I’m blown away by a simple yet profound use for bacon. Why did I never think of this before? Because I tend to get too complicated. I need to remember that the simplest food ideas are the best. And Camilla at Enlightened Cooking has proved it with her...

Know Your Bacon

How well do you know bacon? Do you know something about it’s history? Do you have a favorite brand? Do you know about it’s omega-3 fatty acid content, or lack thereof? I’m a sucker for quizzes and surveys, so when a friend sent me this Bacon and Pork...

Bacon Label Gallery

I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy Dave’s Cupboard. This New Englander is a truly gifted cook who seems to give instructions on everything I’ve ever wanted to know, like how to make your own bacon. He’s also a food enthusiast who goes out...

Bacon Cheddar Gordita Crunch

By now you’ve no doubt heard: Taco Bell has taken the bacon world by storm! It’s all everyone is talking about. Its face seems to be painted across every surface I encounter. It’s the bacon-cheddar-gordita-crunch, and it has come to dominate our...

BaconTwits

If you’re reading this blog, there’s a chance you like bacon. If you follow more than one blog, there’s a chance you also like other time-wasting, Internet-based nonsense, like Facebook and Twitter. If any or all of those things are true about you,...

Bacon Haikus and Zombies

I love haiku. It’s a poetry form that requires discipline, but only briefly. Like a tiny sudoku or a 24-tile Rubik’s cube. Once, during a particularly stressful time at work, my bo ss and I relieved our stress by exchanging daily haikus about our...

Review: Maple Bacon Coffee

It was way back in November when we featured Boca Java’s Maple Bacon Morning coffee. I think I ordered it that very day, it just sounded too irresistible. When it arrived, I was thrilled to find it had a one-way air release valve so you could squeeze the bag...
