Blue Ribbon Baconfest

Not to disparage the fine state of Iowa, but I’ve never had the compulsion to go there. I’ve probably driven through it on one of my family’s many road trips across the country, but I can’t say I remember anything about it. So why, now, do I...

The gift of bacon

Faithful reader Chrissy recently sent me a link to an etsy artist with a healthy appreciation for food, including our favorite meat. As you can see here, Nicodemusgreen thinks “bacon is like a little hug from god.” For me, it’s a gentle reminder to...

Lazy Weekend Recipe

When my husband is out of town (which is often) I get lazy about a lot of things. For instance, all the shoes I wear in about a 2 week period end up in the living room because I can’t possibly expend the energy to put them away. Apparently they end up in train...

Do you love bacon? Really? Are you sure? Because if you’re not wearing a t-shirt or in some way physically sporting your devotion, I’m not sure I can buy it. That’s why I’m so proud of our reader, Nick, who is clearly determined to show us all...

Bacon as Yarn

I can’t tell you how often I almost start my posts with the word “wow.” I write it and then erase it thinking, “you can’t say that every day.” And yet while adventuring through the world of bacon, I often think it…WOW!...

Bacon Science Theater 3000

So this was what I was trying to write about a week ago when my world crashed around me. And maybe you’ve already heard it, but I still call it news. For those of you out there who are Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans, you’ll be thrilled to know that Mike...

We’re Back!

So this isn’t an official post, but I wanted to let you know we’re more or less back. I thought the world as I knew it had ended, but in fact it was only broken. Hooray! See you tomorrow!

Technical Difficulties

Sorry, gang, I’m having severe technical difficulties which I hope to have resolved soon. To make matters worse, my work computer is also ailing, so I don’t even have a backup plan. Hope to be back soon!
