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....

Bacon Pride

Do you love bacon? Really? Are you sure? Because if you’re not wearing a t-shirt or in some way physically sporting your devotion, I’m not sure I can buy it. That’s why I’m so proud of our reader, Nick, who is clearly determined to show us all...

Bacon as Yarn

I can’t tell you how often I almost start my posts with the word “wow.” I write it and then erase it thinking, “you can’t say that every day.” And yet while adventuring through the world of bacon, I often think it…WOW!...

Bacon Science Theater 3000

So this was what I was trying to write about a week ago when my world crashed around me. And maybe you’ve already heard it, but I still call it news. For those of you out there who are Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans, you’ll be thrilled to know that Mike...

We’re Back!

So this isn’t an official post, but I wanted to let you know we’re more or less back. I thought the world as I knew it had ended, but in fact it was only broken. Hooray! See you tomorrow!

Technical Difficulties

Sorry, gang, I’m having severe technical difficulties which I hope to have resolved soon. To make matters worse, my work computer is also ailing, so I don’t even have a backup plan. Hope to be back soon!

Behold, Bacon Man!

You thought Burning Man was impressive? Forget about it, Bacon Man probably took just as long to build and is significantly more delicious. Via FoodProof and NetDiva’s Flickr...

Bacon Explosion – No Joke!

I love when one idea snowballs into several others, and the bacon mat has been a major springboard for lots of bacon creations over the past few months. Of course there was the bacon cheese roll, followed by the bacon, chicken, cheese roll. And now this: the Bacon...

Swine & Wine

Great news from Rocco at Bacon Freak! There’s been a lot of talk lately about whether you can pair bacon with wine, and if so, how? RBS did just such a thing at our Bacon Day party, and it was a fun experiment to share with friends. I know Alexa over at...

Bacon Wrapped Elvish Cookies

I’m loving bloggers this week. Yesterday, of course, was a heart-attack recipe from SOT, and today I have to draw your attention once again to the Ridiculous Food Society of Upstate New York. Mr. Dave constantly cracks me up, and last weekend he did it again. He...

Bacon Chicken Cheese Roll

By now you’ve all seen Foodproof’s Bacon and Cheese Roll. This thing is a modern marvel and fully deserves the wild acclaim it has received. I mean, seriously, that was brilliant. But, as with all great ideas, this one has already been one-upped. I give...

Bacon Watch 2009

I thought that headline sounded more dramatic and exciting with the year thrown on the end, like a breaking news story. Which I suppose this is, because hey! It’s an actual bacon watch! As in, a watch made of bacon! Well, sort of. Yes, Archie McPhee has done it...

Review: Cheddar Bacon Gordita Crunch

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great Martin Luther King Day, and that you’re having an even better Inauguration Day! I’m starting the day off with a sad confession: I’ve been really bad about trying the hippest new bacon creations for your edification,...

You. Just. Got. BACON’D!!

I don’t often write about Kevin Bacon on this blog, due in part to the La Coronilla Treaty of 2008 (see the comments section.) And so I’m not going to say much about this clip from funnyordie.com, except that it is AWESOME with a capital AWE. Happy Friday....

More Cupcakes…with Bacon!

Here in the West, I think Sprinkles has become the cupcake standard. They make huge, beautiful cupcakes in lots of amazing flavors with every kind of colorful confetti topping you can imagine. Soon they’ll be expanding across the country and across the world,...

Bacon Edamame

Once again I’m blown away by a simple yet profound use for bacon. Why did I never think of this before? Because I tend to get too complicated. I need to remember that the simplest food ideas are the best. And Camilla at Enlightened Cooking has proved it with her...

Know Your Bacon

How well do you know bacon? Do you know something about it’s history? Do you have a favorite brand? Do you know about it’s omega-3 fatty acid content, or lack thereof? I’m a sucker for quizzes and surveys, so when a friend sent me this Bacon and Pork...
