Bacon is People! It’s People!!

This is absolutely fantastic. The Japanese, the craftiest of all scientist, have created a robot with the specific purpose of identifying wines. A mechanical sommelier. Researchers at NEC Systems Technologies and Mie University unveiled this adorable wonder two months...

A Slice of Fried (Bacon) Gold

Have I mentioned before how much I love potatoes? For many years I was an addict, barely able to prepare a meal without them. I’m a mashed potato expert, but never tell my guests that they’re eating equal parts potato, cream and butter. I want them to...

Bacon Bombadier

Have you heard the latest cautionary tale? Apparently, you should never pack a carry-on bag with bacon. It seems that bacon has “a similar molecular density to certain types of explosives.” One man learned this the hard way at the Linz Airport in Austria....

Bacon Bread

When I saw Rachelle Bowden’s post about Bacon Bread at the Blue Ribbon Bakery in New York, I thought, “So simple. So genius.” I never really thought about putting bacon in bread. Mind you, I haven’t made bread in years, but even so. Why...

Bacon Lamp

I am completely blown away by this bacon art. The amazing Mingarro Brothers of Barcelona founded a multi-disciplinary studio, Brosmind, and have won a whole slew of awards for their work. Their art is fun and whimsical, and includes everything from illustration to...

Bacon-Wrapped Eggs

When my husband became enamored of Eggs Benedict, I learned to make them at home. The hollandaise is time-consuming, but not as difficult as I had imagined. The egg poaching, however, I never quite mastered. Instead, I bought these handy egg frying rings from Williams...

Bacon Beans!

Love bacon, but hate all that greasy mess? Craving bacon, but also craving candy? Want to carry bacon around in your purse or pocket, but afraid it will attract a gang of feral dogs? Well Archie McPhee has just the thing for you! They’re Bacon Beans, and...

OMG: Bacon Overload

Some of you may remember an image used on this site: an ultimate bacon sandwich made of 22 slices of fried bacon and two slices of white bread. Period. Nothing more. Well that image was from years ago. The maniacal wizard behind that sandwich has moved on to bigger...

Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburger

What gives with the cheeseburgers lately? Everywhere I turn, bacon cheeseburgers are in my face, tempting me to be bad. Very bad. The latest rage seems to be the Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburger, the basics on a glazed donut instead of a bun. It’s more...

So far, so good

Okay, so if you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know I made bacon-infused bourbon over the weekend. And when my bacon bourbon was complete, I wanted to get some expert opinions on its flavor. Where better to go than to the local teamsters? Well okay, not...

Home-style Bacon Bourbon

So I finally did it. I made bacon bourbon over the weekend to share with some friends, and I thought I’d give you the step-by-step account. First things first, introductions. Bacon, meet Bourbon. Bourbon, Bacon. Okay, pleasantries out of the way, I fried up a...

Chocolate Bacon Cheeseburger

How do I feel this morning? Outdone, that’s how. The amazing minds at Epic Nomz have created a burger so beautiful, so mouth-wateringly lovely to think about, I can hardly stand it. Once again, a bacon recipe that has me dreaming of dinner before I’ve even...
