The Sticky Pig

I know what you’re thinking. New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, and what am I going to take to that cocktail party to wow my friends? Or, what’s the perfect hostess gift for the kind of friend who doesn’t ask you to bring an appetizer? Or…or, how do you say “I love you but I’m not IN LOVE with you” on a major holiday?

Tea Time

So my maple bacon black tea arrived this week, and I was so excited to try it! First of all, it came loose, giving me an excuse to use that teaball spoon I’ve had sitting in a drawer for the past 3 years.

I totally deserve that ebelskiver pan. Anyway, when I opened the tea pouch, the first thing I...

I’ve been hearing for months that the west coast is in for an epic El Nino winter, and it looks like maybe it’s finally starting.

If any of those people are reading this now…well, why would they be? It’s a bacon blog. So I’ll just pretend they don’t exist. Although I experienced a lull in my bacon enthusiasm after Bacon Day ’09, Thanksgiving really helped re-kindle my love. I mean, you just can’t have green beans without bacon. And one thing leads to another… Our friends and sponsors over at baconfreak.com have provided us with a list of their top 10 bacon related products this year. And what do you know…they’re all available for your gift giving pleasure! # 10 – Boss Hog’s Bacon Chocolate Sueyts Bacon and chocolate; it’s one of the few salty/sweet flavor combinations I actually enjoy. And they were wise enough to use dark chocolate instead of milk. As I discovered with our Bacon Day chocolate fountain, bacon is the best thing to happen to chocolate since peanut butter. Oooh, bacon peanut butter cup. Someone should totally steal that idea. # 9 – Bacon Freak Maple Bacon Pancake Mix Whether you stick this in someone’s stocking or have some ready for Christmas morning, these pancakes are a great idea. With chunks of bacon and maple mixed right into the...
