This one made me gag a little

Wow. I don’t know what to say about KFC this morning. I once got really sick after eating KFC wings, so am perhaps over-cautious about their products. And I do admit their snackers look good to me, but they have really outdone themselves this time. Their new...

Bacon Wins!

I’m sure many of you were aware that there was a vote taking place to determine once and for all which breakfast meat is truly king: bacon or sausage. Over at Super Action Vote, people were submitting videos and voting for their favorite, and I hope that you...

Bacon Day Gear is Here!

I don’t know about you, but I’m in love with the logo designs for Bacon Day ’09. And now, whether you’re planning to attend Bacon Day or not, you can get your very own Bacon Day gear. From t-shirts to bumper stickers, the Bacon Day Store has it...

Bourdain Goes Bacon

On Monday night my husband and I were feeling a bit lazy and uninspired, so much so that we ended up watching a veritable marathon of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. Which is not to say we don’t enjoy the show; indeed, we applaud his fervent...

Bacon Shot

I don’t speak German, but I’m an instant fan of this very simple website with a singular purpose: to teach you how to make a bacon vodka shot. It’s baconshot.net, and it’s beautiful. Considering that bacon vodka (and Bakon Vodka) will be...

Bacon World

DUDES! Have you seen this?! I am often overwhelmed by what people are able to capture with a good camera and lenses, but this absolutely takes the cake. London photographer Carl Warner captured these amazing landscapes, made entirely of cold cuts and bread products. I...

Viva los Tacos!

Well, it’s Fiesta time in Santa Barbara. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this annual festival, it’s also called Old Spanish Days and it started in 1924 as a celebration of the Spanish way of life that the town’s settlers had once enjoyed. At...

Just Plain Bacon

Most days my posts have to do with some great bacon find, or a cool recipe, or a weird product. Today I just want to talk about eating bacon, the way we did on Sunday morning. Saturday evening Naseem and her crew threw a big backyard BBQ. Something like 40 people were...
