Bacon: Man Bait!

We recently received a delightful surprise in the mail from Das Foods: the Man Bait Lollipop! Das Foods specializes in lots of gourmet goodies including a variety of caramels, lollipops and sea salts. For obvious reasons, Founder and CEO Katie Das thought we might like to try her Maple Bacon lolli, and she was right! Upon our first taste we noticed the same thing: tastes sweet like maple syrup, smells smoky.┬áLike so many smoke-enhanced items, you’re not sure if you’re tasting the smoke or just smelling it…it seems to reach the back of your sinuses through your mouth. And...

Bakon Vodka

So we all know bacon has been infused with all kinds of liquors. Hell, I made Bacon Bourbon more than once myself. Until now these have just been recipes concocted at home or in America’s swankiest bars, but no longer! Bacon has entered the world of commercially distilled and distributed vodka. I give you BAKON!

I wish I hadn’t flattened it directly onto the bacon...

Bacon & Egg Salad

I’ve found a new blog to add to my favorites. It’s called Delish, and of particular interest to me is that the writer, Becks, blogs gluten-free, a lifestyle to which I am trying to adapt. But as an added bonus, her significant other luuurvs bacon, so she’s sure to have lots of recipes that I’ll enjoy. This Bacon Egg Salad looks pretty amazing to me, kind of like a typical spinach salad, but with boiled eggs. Or maybe like a cobb salad without the cheese, tomatoes and chicken? I don’t know, it’s just decidedly simple, which is always helpful...
