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,…

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…

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…

Bacon Ice Cream on the Go

Santa Barbara has seen a rash of mobile food eateries pop up in the past year or so, as seen here in John Dickson's Food Truck Guide. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest things that can happen…

Bay to Bacon 2011

I mentioned way back in October that Naseem and I were going to start doing some races under the moniker of Team Bacon. We started with 5K runs and...well, honestly that's all I've really bothered to do over the past…

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…

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…

Say Cheese…and Meat!

Okay, after yesterday's post I got an email with the following photo which, in my opinion, totally kicks the meat manger scene's ass. I mean, the manger scene is hilarious, but would you check out the artistry on this thing?…

Bacon at Wendy’s

A representative of Wendy's contacted us recently and asked if we'd like to try some of their menu items, particularly their new "Pick Two" promotion, where you get two items for $4.99. Neither Naseem nor I had been to Wendy's…

Not Bacon, but Totally Related

So I know this here blog is supposed to be all about bacon, but let's be honest. There's a whole lot more to the proud pig than his delicious belly. One of the most versatile cuts (and my second favorite)…

Bacon Day and Sweet Sunday

For a number of reasons, not the least of which is a lack of venue, RBS will not be holding a full-scale Bacon Day party in 2010. I've already discussed this disappointing news with a number of you die-hards out…

Crispy bacon shrimp

Not long ago, my husband and I went to one of our favorite local eateries, Shalhoob's for a long-anticipated date night. Besides having really great steaks and cocktails, this restaurant has a long history in Santa Barbara. Shalhoob's Meat Company…
