A really interesting, albeit short, article in the Wall Street Journal last week about how food trends start. Here’s an excerpt:
Bacon. It’s everywhere. Wendy’s features it in the “Baconator” and Paula Deen crumbles it into quiche. Ditto for those deluxe cupcakes top-heavy with frosting. Is there a bakery or supermarket that doesn’t sell them?
Bacon and cupcakes — like sliders, bubble tea, popsicles, food trucks and chipotle — have caught on from coast to coast.
How indeed. Click on through, it’s a good read with a great quote from Ted Allen at the end.

From last night’s Saturday Night Live…
“If you enjoy cozy atmosphere, excellent service and healthy servings of pig meat accompanied by sparkling wines…”
It was a good sketch, but not quite as good as his previous effort…
“Mmmm, that’s good ham!”
All and all not a bad episode last night, a few good spots and a solid “Weekend Update“…but John Hamm is quickly becoming a solid go-to guy for SNL.

In the few short weeks of this blogs existence, we have begun a few reoccurring “features” such as “Nerd News”, “Goin’ to the Market”, and “Makin’ Bacon”.Â Today, we start something new…”Better with Bacon”.Â “Better with Bacon” willÂ call out a newÂ recipe each week!Â I will be surfin’ the interwebs through my google machine to find what I deem as the tastiest of the tasty and then post them here each Tuesday.
To follow up on “Better with Bacon”, I am also introducing “Test Kitchen” where I get my behind into the kitchen and make one of theÂ posted recipes.Â This feature won’t have a set day due to my travel schedule at work, but I will try to feature something I made every two weeks.
So, let’s “officially” kick this off with:
Maple Bacon Cupcakes!!! [Read more →]

This is a billboard for Ranfurly Frontier Lager in New Zealand. The concept is that in the near future real men are close to extinction. The very last of these men now reside in the Ranfurly Man Park where they are once again free to live the rest of their days “as nature intended”.
I’m not feeling the overall campaign concept and execution, but I must admit that truer words have never appeared on any billboard I have ever seen.

Anywho, the fine folks at Archie McPhee have done it again. There is nothing they won’t make taste like bacon!
From their site:
These red and white striped hard candies look just like the ones that grandma used to put in her fancy candy dish for the holidays. But, my oh my, would grandma be in for a surprise if she popped one in her mouth!
Oh my indeed.
$5.95 for a tin with about 12 pieces of candy.

If you are french, a french chef or fan of “Top Chef“ this may rub you the wrong way.
And as for bacon recipes this one may be a stretch…but the recipe does include bacon and crock pot cooking is supposed to be easy…
Catch the recipe after the jump. [Read more →]
