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...

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!...
