Scallops with Creamy Bacon Sauce

Okay, my husband is officially the best. He’s a diver and a spearfisherman, and I’m extremely fortunate to be the beneficiary of those skills. While he’s very selective and judicious about how much he takes, I have certainly had my fair share of...

Bacon Meatballs

Last month I came up with this little recipe in order to participate in a Spaghetti Western fundraiser…you can’t do a pasta event without meatballs, right? Turns out, the meatballs were a hit and, since my husband missed that event, I decided to whip some...

Happy Cinco de Drinko! Con Tocino!

Leave it to Conan, THE MAN, to share with us yet another bacon bebida. Sweet Conan, I’m so on your team. Lots of interesting looking stuff, but the bacon talk starts around 6:10. Wait for it… “Wait, so this is just bacon, syrup and tequila??”...

Bacon Goes BIG

We were recently contacted by Oscar Mayer, asking us if we’d like to try out their new product, Super Thick Cut Applewood Smoked Bacon. Because we are no fools, we said, “yes please!” You may have seen this new bacon mentioned on, oh, EVERY OTHER...

Makin’ Bacon…Vodka

So you’re all familiar with my experiments in making Bacon Bourbon. I did it a few times and although it was alright, it wasn’t exactly addicting. Although I never did make a bacon maple Manhattan, which is still on my to-do list. This year for Bacon Day...
