Three videos I’ve seen in the last few days that I had to share.
First, this Playstation commercial…
Video game characters extoiling the virtues of their player, who just happens to share MY first name…just sayin’. I’ve been a fan of their recent campaigns but this spot is really clever.
I’ve watched this about 20 times already. Stark and Cap, Stark and Banner, Hawkeye snapping his bow, Fury…I so much want the Avengers to rock!! (Ed. Note – Sick all week at home so I finally got to see Thor, thought it was really good.)
I know this has been all over the interwebs already, but it just makes me smile. I remember when I first saw Empire and what a big moment the reveal was…I hope that when Lil’ and I finally watch these movies together that she has that same reaction.
Hope everyone is having a great night!

it isn’t much but it is bacon.
Gang, I’ve been killer sick for 10 days now AND just finished watching my Tigers lose in extras to the Rangers while catching the beginning of the Lions on Monday night football. My attention (and energy) is elsewhere…
Make it a GREAT night everyone and I’ll do better tomorrow. Promise!

Sometimes it seems like I find things in bunches…the bacon blotter stories last week and now this week, tear away bacon bread recipes…
Look at that pure hunk of goodness right there. It’s called a “pull”, I call it hot damn! Believe it our not, it comes from the New York Times (yeah, I know, really, the New York Times)
Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls
- 1 unsliced loaf of sourdough bread (preferably round)
- 8 to 12 ounces Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
- 3-ounce bag Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits (or just cook some up and pulse it, it’d taste batter)
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon ranch dressing mix
- Using a sharp bread knife, cut the loaf in both directions in a checkerboard pattern, being careful not to cut through the bottom crust.
- Place slices of cheese between cuts.
- Sprinkle bacon bits on bread, making sure to get between cuts.
- Mix butter with ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread.
- Wrap loaf in foil and place on baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
- Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Guys, what lady doesn’t want jewerly? Am I Right? Well as you begin thinkin’ about what you’re goin’ to get that special woman in your life this holiday season, let me suggest this:
Yes, that is a bacon necklace ($36)! Courtesy of Onch Movement, a L.A. jewelry designer, you can now wear your favorite pork product in style. How does this NOT go with that little black dress she has in the closet?
Not into necklaces? Then pick up the bacon braclet ($32).
Does she prefer other meat types? Well there’s the chicken wing or the slice of beef options as well.

Bubble bread??? I can honestly tell you, I have never heard of “bubble bread” in all my 40 years. After finding this recipe, I believe it will now become a staple at casa de bacon.
That is the finished product after it’s fetched from the oven. To get a better sense of all the goodness that goes into than bowl, head over to Tasty Kitchen. Full recipe with terrific photos (including the one featured) for your enjoyment.
