Pop’s Bacon Snack Stick

Just before the holidays, we were fortunate to be contacted by the good folks at Pop’s Authentic, a company that makes artisan jerky and meat snack in New Franklin, Missouri. They asked if we’d like to try their product (specifically their Bacon Snack...

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...

The Sticky Pig

I know what you’re thinking. New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, and what am I going to take to that cocktail party to wow my friends? Or, what’s the perfect hostess gift for the kind of friend who doesn’t ask you to bring an appetizer?...

Tea Time

So my maple bacon black tea arrived this week, and I was so excited to try it! First of all, it came loose, giving me an excuse to use that teaball spoon I’ve had sitting in a drawer for the past 3 years. I loves me some kitchen gadgets, but don’t always...

Just in Time for Winter

I’ve been hearing for months that the west coast is in for an epic El Nino winter, and it looks like maybe it’s finally starting. With rain and clouds predicted for this entire week, I think I’ll put on something cozy and have a cup of tea. And...

Thanksgiving, eh!

For those of you just tuning in, we here in America just celebrated Thanksgiving; a day of feasting, fun and family where we celebrate how a long time ago, the Native Americans saved our asses. Or something along those lines. It reminds me of how I once got in a...

Bacon Day 09: The Swag

Wow, it is really taking me forever to finish writing about Bacon Day. It was just SUCH a day! We had a number of very generous donors who helped us make this event a success. First and foremost was Rocco at Bacon Freak. He sent us 12 pounds of his delicious, uniquely...

The Bacon Shot. Good Lord.

At the request of our new friends at BaconShot.net, we made bacon shots available to our Bacon Day guests. Seemed like a great idea, since we were serving bacon vodka anyway, so we agreed and we asked people for their reviews. Here’s how that story went down....

Bacon Day Reader Review

So I met these two great girls at Bacon Day, Jennifer and Lauren, and we talked a bit about theatre and whatnot. I was super impressed that they drove all the way from Los Angeles for the event, and very sad that they didn’t win any raffle prizes. What I...

Bacon Day ’09

What can I say about International Bacon Day 2009? It was so fun. It was muy delicioso! I am too exhausted to really even think about it. I CAN tell you that no fewer than 43 pounds of bacon went into the event, and no one left with an empty belly. I will tease you...

Bacon is good for me!

What happens when a health-conscious mom suddenly finds herself in charge of a junk food-loving family? Hilarity ensues, of course. Thanks, Bruce, for the biggest laugh I’ve had all...

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...

This one made me gag a little

Wow. I don’t know what to say about KFC this morning. I once got really sick after eating KFC wings, so am perhaps over-cautious about their products. And I do admit their snackers look good to me, but they have really outdone themselves this time. Their new...

Bacon Wins!

I’m sure many of you were aware that there was a vote taking place to determine once and for all which breakfast meat is truly king: bacon or sausage. Over at Super Action Vote, people were submitting videos and voting for their favorite, and I hope that you...
