Birthday Bacon

As I mentioned yesterday, we had one heck of a party to celebrate our good friend Naseem last weekend. Wine tasting was followed by wine drinking, followed by many taxi-cabs and occasionally getting shushed by my husband for talking too loud. (Me?!) Dinner was held at...

Kevin Bacon: Side Note

My husband was so mad that I didn’t include Tremors in Kevin Bacon’s list of hits. I was all, “I think it can be lumped in with his late-eighties slump.” And he’s like, “Nuh-uh. Tremors was made in the nineties.” And it turns...

Bacon Feather

Well it’s Monday again, and once again I’m overwhelmed and under prepared. The good news is that we had an awesome weekend celebrating Naseem’s birthday with much wine and bacon-wrapped filet. (Delicious steak photos to follow soon.) In the meantime,...

Kevin Bacon 1958 – Eternity

Born in Philadelphia, Kevin Bacon is the youngest of six children. His prolific film career began in 1982 with the critically acclaimed Diner. It was with 1984′s Footloose, however, that Kevin became a Hollywood icon. Although he experienced an artistic slump in...

It’s Time for Bacon!

See this crazy kid? See how he’s dancing for the sheer love of bacon? That song he’s jamming to is written by one of the Society’s favorite rock stars and product reviewers, Parry Gripp. You may know Parry as a lovable Nerfherder, or perhaps...

Wake & Bake Redefined

I used to have a roommate who religiously did the wake & bake, something I found pretty irritating most days, since he had to walk through my bedroom to get to the bathroom for his morning shower. (Worst house design EVER.) And he had to be at work by 7:00 a.m....

The Eternal Struggle Rages On

It’s a question as old as time: to meat, or not to meat. I know lots of vegetarians, and just as many former vegetarians who fell off the old meat-wagon. If you were struggling to control your carnivorous instincts, can you think of any smell that would ruin you...

Bacon Pizza…Hallelujah!

Could there be two more heavenly words than bacon and pizza? And I don’t mean that Canadian variety so popular with the pineapples. I’m talking fat-marbled, skillet-fried, greasy, delicious bacon. According to Serious Eats’ Slice report, Famous...

Menage a Bacon

Wow! It’s been a hectic weekend, and its going to be one heck of a Monday. Let’s just say it involves major deadlines and multi-paged proposals. And so I will simply start the week with this beautiful photo of a pile of bacon, and wishes that your week may...

Bacon Baklava

As you may have guessed by, oh I don’t know, maybe my bacon blog, I am a salty person. I like the occasional sweet, but I’m really more about a good cut of meat, a rich pasta sauce or a buttery baked potato. (I must make an exception for ice cream…i...

Just in time for Father’s Day

I don’t know about your dad, but mine has some typical father-like qualities. Things like a penchant for shop tools and barbecues and red meat. Although Dad and I don’t agree on how we like our bacon cooked, we both agree that breakfast isn’t...

Smart Bacon

It must be a wonderful time to be a vegetarian. Beyond the bounty of fresh and exotic produce available year round, there are some great companies out there making tasty meat alternatives. Heck, I’m not a vegetarian and I love St. Ives Veggie Dogs. So we asked...

Bacon in a Can

Internet, this product has just BLOWN. MY. MIND. I thought it was a joke at first, but no. Indeed this product is real. It’s bacon in a can and you can find it here. The camouflage can and the description “MRE” bring to mind images of men out...

You’re doing it all wrong!

This is interesting…a cooking site with a section devoted to telling you not only what you’re doing wrong, but also how to do it right. This instructional video from chow.com about how to cook bacon is right on the money, as far as I’m concerned. I...

This one takes the cake

I’m a pretty big fan of my dog. I personally bathe him and clean his ears and have spent an ungodly amount of money on his propensity to injure himself. Our house and yard are littered with dog beds and chew toys and fashionable collars and leashes. And treats?...

More wearable bacon!

Has anyone noticed that, um…people like bacon? Seriously good things keep being churned out by artists and chefs and hucksters alike. Today I bring you another Etsy artist, Melbell, whose shop is just full of cute novelty jewelry. Much of it shaped like the...
