Bourdain Goes Bacon

On Monday night my husband and I were feeling a bit lazy and uninspired, so much so that we ended up watching a veritable marathon of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. Which is not to say we don’t enjoy the show; indeed, we applaud his fervent...

iBacon

Sometimes I’m sitting in my office, window open to allow in a cool breeze, and what wafts in instead? The smell of cooking bacon. I work downtown, and fairly close to several restaurants. This sensory distraction drives me insane and creates a false sense of...

Genetically Engineered Bacon

This is perfect for a Friday. So this hilarious site, Color Wars 2008, held a contest for the best nerd rap. The only stipulation was that the rapper use the word “bacon” and their team name in the rhyme. And man, the Gold and Silver medalist were...

Bacon Shot

I don’t speak German, but I’m an instant fan of this very simple website with a singular purpose: to teach you how to make a bacon vodka shot. It’s baconshot.net, and it’s beautiful. Considering that bacon vodka (and Bakon Vodka) will be...

Bacon World

DUDES! Have you seen this?! I am often overwhelmed by what people are able to capture with a good camera and lenses, but this absolutely takes the cake. London photographer Carl Warner captured these amazing landscapes, made entirely of cold cuts and bread products. I...

Viva los Tacos!

Well, it’s Fiesta time in Santa Barbara. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this annual festival, it’s also called Old Spanish Days and it started in 1924 as a celebration of the Spanish way of life that the town’s settlers had once enjoyed. At...

Just Plain Bacon

Most days my posts have to do with some great bacon find, or a cool recipe, or a weird product. Today I just want to talk about eating bacon, the way we did on Sunday morning. Saturday evening Naseem and her crew threw a big backyard BBQ. Something like 40 people were...

The Bacon Belt

One of my least favorite fashion trends in the U.S. is the muffin top. You know, when your jeans get a little too tight, but instead of giving them to Goodwill you just keep rocking them and add a slightly-too-short t-shirt to emphasize your tummy’s...

Bacon Soap

You know how when one vampire movie (or zombie movie, or movie about Truman Capote) comes out, suddenly there are one or two others within the next 12 months? Like, everyone had this great idea right around the same time for some weird reason? Well, apparently...

Historic Home for Sale…Must Love Bacon

Bacon lovers in the Bellingham, Washington area, have I got a home for you. The historic Bacon Home has been standing for more than 100 years, and now it can be yours! Actually, it’s a gorgeous house in my second-favorite state. If only I had a million dollars...

Homemade Chicharrones

I’m sure you’ve all heard of chicharrones. Also known as pork rinds or cracklin’s and often sold in liquor stores with a small packet of hot sauce, these puffy pig fat treats are a mere shadow of the real thing. If you’re lucky, you’ve...

Bacon Caramels

A reader named Chrissie sent me a link to this recipe for Bacon Caramels, and I cannot thank her enough. Although I’ve never made candy, and I know it can be tricky, I think we’ll give these a try for Bacon Day 2009. They just look too divine. If...

Real Bacon for Dogs

Hi everybody! It’s been a while; We moved to a new house and I’ve been busy securing its borders, making the possums an offer they couldn’t refuse, if you know what I mean. I’m still swamped with trampling the flower beds and tasting the...

Independence Bacon

I know the 4th of July was almost a week ago, and that by posting a week late I seem deeply ungrateful for my many liberties, but that popcorn post was really important. Plus? I was too hungover on Sunday night to prepare a real post for Monday. Sue me. Our holiday...

Bacon Popcorn Paradise

I have to start this post with two apologies. First, I apologize to the Paradise Island Gourmet Popcorn company. We were remiss in sampling your product. Second, I apologize to our readers, for not getting the word out sooner about this delicious treat! I hope this...

Bacon & Fireworks

I just love the 4th of July. I wish I could say it was because I’m so patriotic. Don’t get me wrong; I’m wildly grateful to live in America and truly enjoy the freedoms that come along with that privilege, but let’s be honest:I love having a...

Elegance

I love how there are flowers and cloth napkins on the table. And also…an entire bottle of Wild Turkey 101. The perfect meal for a special occasion. Or an awesome first date. Thanks,...
