Scallops with Creamy Bacon Sauce

Okay, my husband is officially the best. He’s a diver and a spearfisherman, and I’m extremely fortunate to be the beneficiary of those skills. While he’s very selective and judicious about how much he takes, I have certainly had my fair share of...

Bacon Meatballs

Last month I came up with this little recipe in order to participate in a Spaghetti Western fundraiser…you can’t do a pasta event without meatballs, right? Turns out, the meatballs were a hit and, since my husband missed that event, I decided to whip some...

Is there such a thing as too much pork?

This weekend while the husband and I were biking around downtown, we decided to stop at Union Ale and grab a sandwich and a beer. Because, you know, casually rolling around in 75 degree weather is thirsty work. I meant to be good. I meant to get a salad or a wrap. Or...

Cowboy Up

  It’s that time of year again when RBS gets involved with a Genesis West fundraiser. This year, it’s a Spaghetti Western theme with a wide and weird variety of pastas, full-on barnyard atmosphere (live animals included), and a classic Western movie...

Bacon Ice Cream on the Go

Happy Cinco de Drinko! Con Tocino!

Leave it to Conan, THE MAN, to share with us yet another bacon bebida. Sweet Conan, I’m so on your team. Lots of interesting looking stuff, but the bacon talk starts around 6:10. Wait for it… “Wait, so this is just bacon, syrup and tequila??”...

And the Winner is…

We recently entered a contest hosted by our sponsor, Foodbuzz. It was a BACON recipe contest, and we felt it would be an embarrassment not to enter. Because, you know, we’re a bacon blog. We were not victorious (an outrage!) but I have to say I’m pretty...

BLT for the Modern Man

If you’re a bacon lover, then you probably have your own special recipe for the perfect BLT. (Incidentally, if you’re not a bacon lover, you may have steered yourself to the wrong site.) I’ve always loved a simple sandwich on whole wheat, a little...
