Bacon: Art’s Sizzling Hot Medium

I cannot believe how much bacon art there is to be found in this wacky world of ours. This piece here was on display at Bacon Camp in San Francisco in March. Ranging from beautiful to bizarre to downright ridiculous, bacon has opened up a whole new world for artists....

I’ve been thinking all week, and I decided I just don’t have much bacon news to report from across the pond. Although we did enjoy the bacon turnovers in England a great deal, I can’t find a photo of them…Naseem probably has one in her...

London Blog

Cheerio! Royal Bacon Society is back from our European Vacation! (Naseem, by the by, has never seen European Vacation and never laughed once when I said, “Look Naseem, Big Ben. Parliament.” I started feeling kind of stupid after the 10th attempt to make...

Twice Baconed Potatoes

I tend to get really lazy about cooking when my husband is out of town, which is good in some ways. More salads, fewer rich cream sauces, less red meat. But my husband’s gone a lot so eventually I get bored with whatever I’m doing and have the urge to cook...

Baconfish!

As our faithful readers already know, RBS headquarters are located in Santa Barbara, home of no less than three major wildfires in the past year. It’s been scary and chaotic, but I recently had the super fun experience of having Naseem and her mini-farm stay...

Flaming Bacon Lance of Death

Do you like bacon? (Well, technically prosciutto.) Of course you do. Do you like science content in your bacon blog? Who doesn’t?! Then I give you Theo Gray’s steel-cutting prosciutto torch. What could be more exciting than pork products cutting through...

BA-K-47

Is it ridiculous? Absolutely. Is it hilarious? Definitely. Does it make me hungry? Hell yes it does. There is something wrong with me. Somehow I imagine it shooting bacon bits or something. For kicking ass and making salads. Go America! Check out more photos...

Back and Bacony!

Bacon Lovers, I’ve missed you. I’m sorry we were gone so long. I was heavily distracted by all things domestic and my new project: home ownership. March was a long month, but April holds great promise. So while I was out, my good friend Chrissy sent me...

Bacon: Man Bait!

We recently received a delightful surprise in the mail from Das Foods: the Man Bait Lollipop! Das Foods specializes in lots of gourmet goodies including a variety of caramels, lollipops and sea salts. For obvious reasons, Founder and CEO Katie Das thought we might...

Bakon Vodka

So we all know bacon has been infused with all kinds of liquors. Hell, I made Bacon Bourbon more than once myself. Until now these have just been recipes concocted at home or in America’s swankiest bars, but no longer! Bacon has entered the world of commercially...

Bacon Cheeseburger Explosion

So I know the Bacon Explosion is probably getting old for some of you, but I never made it because I don’t like sausage. I’m a little slow on the up-take, but eventually an idea came to me: substitute hamburger for the sausage! Add cheese! Bacon...

Bacon & Egg Salad

I’ve found a new blog to add to my favorites. It’s called Delish, and of particular interest to me is that the writer, Becks, blogs gluten-free, a lifestyle to which I am trying to adapt. But as an added bonus, her significant other luuurvs bacon, so...

Blue Ribbon Baconfest

Not to disparage the fine state of Iowa, but I’ve never had the compulsion to go there. I’ve probably driven through it on one of my family’s many road trips across the country, but I can’t say I remember anything about it. So why, now, do I...

The gift of bacon

Faithful reader Chrissy recently sent me a link to an etsy artist with a healthy appreciation for food, including our favorite meat. As you can see here, Nicodemusgreen thinks “bacon is like a little hug from god.” For me, it’s a gentle reminder to...

Lazy Weekend Recipe

When my husband is out of town (which is often) I get lazy about a lot of things. For instance, all the shoes I wear in about a 2 week period end up in the living room because I can’t possibly expend the energy to put them away. Apparently they end up in train...

The Bacon Lady

A couple of my friends like to joke about becoming “Crazy Cat Lady,” that old woman who has 2 dozen cats roaming her home with names like Mittens and Uncle Albert, and little bowls of milk all over the floor, piano and stairs. My mom is another form of cat...

Wintery, bacony soup

I don’t know what the weather’s like where you are, but in Santa Barbara we’re having an actual winter! Rain! Temperatures in the 50s! I know that sounds mild to lots of people, but I swear I’ve never been so cold for so long since moving here....
