Bacon Bling

Ready to proclaim your commitment? Not QUITE ready to wear it on a t-shirt like a billboard? Well here’s the perfect compromise. The I Love Bacon Necklace. Simultaneously bold yet understated, casual observers may even mistake it for the infamous...

Say it out loud: I love this sandwich!

There are a wide variety of ways to express your love of bacon. In coming posts I’ll show you some wearable trinkets designed by the truly devout. I begin today with the BLT Ring, with big thanks to Cool Hunting and (who else?) The Grateful Palate. It goes...

Hover Bacon

When these little guys first hit the scene, I was fascinated. And given the success of their Quizno’s commercial, just think what they could do for our friend...

The Perfect Marriage

I’ve seen a number of interesting sweet/salty combinations involving bacon, especially where maple syrup is involved. But here’s a brilliant new idea that combines two things that I truly love. Bacon and Chocolate. The Vosges Haut-Chocolat website is not...

Give it up for Gravy

My roommates buy a lot of fancy stuff  for me.  Environmentally friendly biodegradable poop bags. (Who cares?) French Vanilla scented shampoo for sensitive skin. (Like I want a bath.) Two dog beds that they for some reason stack on top of each other. What am I, the...

Bacon Taters!

I don’t know what I love more: the interweb, or people from the mid-West who make my job so easy. Maybe this idea was too obvious, maybe I should already have come up with it myself. But it was just as fun discovering it on the wide, wide world of web. Thanks,...

Bacon Hydration for Humans…I guess

It seems nearly unfathomable that it has taken me this long to get to it. I saw it months ago. I noticed it on a menu in Vegas. I’ve been simultaneously intrigued and repulsed since it first came to my attention. It’s a Bacon Martini, and I cannot imagine...

Kiwi…Australian for Bacon

This commercial reminds me of the excruciating year that my husband and I decided to be vegetarians. It would have been a lovely experiment if we hadn’t both gained 10 pounds from all the extra carbs and cheese we packed in trying to feel satisfied. It might...

Bacon Hydration

My diet is pretty boring. I get some supposedly healthy kibble twice a day, a handful of treats if I look cute enough, and all the water I can drink. Woop-dee-doo. Water. I know my roommates have beer and wine and whipping cream in the fridge, but they are not...

Michael Scott: Champion of Bacon

Over the centuries, there have been countless tales of bravery, men and women willing to sacrifice life and limb for their cause, for their beliefs, for the people and things that they love. One such man, a personal hero of mine, is Michael Scott, Regional Manager of...

Bacon+Wood=Baconwood!

The Baconwood Box Company is a great little business with a penchant for hand-crafted, bacon-related wooden wares. There’s the bacon-wrapped scallop box! Bacon-shaped letter opener! Bacon tees! These people have got it bad for bacon. My favorite by far is the...

Making Friends with Bacon

As Homer Simpson so sagely warned us, “you don’t make friends with salad.” In view of this wisdom, we have scoured the internet seeking those bacon creations which most make us want to kiss the chef. Tune in every Friday for new ways to Make Friends...

Makin’ Bacon!

As a constant frequent maker of bacon, I tend to stick to the pan-fry method. It’s simple and gives me the drippings I require to make everything else in any given meal taste like bacon. Although I have baked it on a cookie sheet and even used my grill pan (with...

Expert opinion

I have been asked to guest commentate on the subject of bacon and bacon flavored treats. My hobbies are extensive and include licking my butt and chasing things, but treats are definitely #1 on that list. I happen to be the recipient of numerous daily treatings, and...

Effing brilliant!

Maple-Bacon Lollipops. There isn’t much I can say about this product that it doesn’t say for itself. It’s made of maple syrup and bacon. It’s pretty much breakfast on a stick. Next Saturday morning, you can serve your family eggs with a side of...
