Bacon Freak’s Top 10 Bacon Gifts

I know people keep trying to say the bacon craze is over. I know there are some people out there who don’t want to hear, see, or think about bacon anymore. If any of those people are reading this now…well, why would they be? It’s a bacon blog. So...

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 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...

This one made me gag a little

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...
