Behold the Magnetic Power of Bacon…

I love Etsy!  Seriously!  You love something and have an idea for a product – BAM – you’ve got a store front and are out there makin’ it happen.

Where else could you find something as simple and as wonderful as these?

Yes, those are bacon magnets.  Created by DesignDude, they come in four different “sizes” and help pork up any fridge. 

Four “slices” in a package, $4.99 per.

Make it so!

Reminder

baconsundayii1

Bacon Sunday II is this Sunday! I have started this movement to encourage everyone to spend one Sunday a month and enjoy a big breakfast with friends / family or even just by yourself with a big old newspaper!  Of course that breakfast includes bacon! ;-)

Better with Bacon – Corned Beef & Cabbage

In anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day, Bobby Flay was on “The Early Show” this morning with his spin on traditional corned beef and cabbage. Of note, his liberal use of bacon!

In fact his strategy of cooking the corned beef directly in bacon fat is something I think I am going to be trying when I cook up my next filet at the house…I’ll let you know how that works out.

Anywho, back to Bobby’s recipe. I was going to post but I fear the wrath of CBS Corporation so instead here is the video (which they allow to be embedded) and you’ll have to click on through for the recipes.

Test Kitchen – Nestle Toll House Bacon Cookies…

I’m making Toll House cookies the other day (the absolute best chocolate chip cookie recipe – bar NONE – I will not even hear your comments to the contrary) when a light pops over my head…

There is bacon that I cooked in the fridge, I write a bacon blog and since day one I have consistently run into stories/recipes for chocolate chip bacon cookies.

Hmmmmm.  How could this NOT be a good idea?

So with one trays worth of dough left, it was time to add the bacon!

Better with Bacon – Maple Bacon Cupcakes

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”.  Today, we start something new…”Better with Bacon”.  “Better with Bacon” will call out a new recipe each week! 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 the posted recipes.  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:
