This site has been around for a while, but I am just discovering it’s near hypnotic spell…
It’s called SCANWICHES and it’s concept is so simple…buy/make a sandwich, cut it in half and then scan it!Â
IÂ was half tempted to do this with the burgers in our “Fast Food Friday” segment, but then I’d just feel like a massive hack.Â So instead, I found a few bacon sandwiches that I thought I’d share with you.
Some more great bacon sandwich photos after the jump… [Read more →]

Sure we’ve had bacon nails on the site before, but this is taking it to the next level…that’s a bacon silhouette of Ron Swanson people, Ron Swanson…on her nails!
That’s some great work!
Check out more photos and the rest of her “work” over at chalkboardnails.com.

Candied Bacon???Â YES!Â Candied Bacon!
Over the last week I have seen a literal flood of posts about this on the Googleverse.Â My favorite post is below, from the Rookie Cookie blog:
There isn’t really a recipe for candied bacon. All you need is brown sugar and bacon. The only real catch is that this has to be made in the oven. The bacon needs to stay flat in order for the brown sugar to melt and get all sticky delicious.

What do you get when you cross one very creative writer and her love of bacon? You get this!
Ode to Bacon (And How I Love Thee)
Ode to bacon and how I love thee,
For without you and your salty goodness,
Your meaty charms,
I’d be quite hungry.
how wonderful you make the world.
You’re the one food that improves everything it touches,
Other than cheese or peanut butter of course.
Just one slice of you,
Or maybe two or three,
And a mediocre sandwich becomes divine,
A dull salad turns tasty.
And luckily for me,
Bacon can be eaten anytime of day,
In anyway, with any dish,
It’s a versatile crunchy meat,
A delicious treat.
I was almost brought to tears…truer words have never been written.
The author? A wondrous young lady by the name of Miranda Koerner (aka the Blond Duck).
This was just the beginning. To read the entire piece, please visit her site (while you’re there, keep reading, she’s good).

The Henry Ford pulled off a winner this weekend with Maker Faire setting up shop in the museum parking lot. If for nothing else, the life size mousetrap demonstration was worth admission for me, but I digress…
I’m walking through the craft tent and what catches my eye?
BACON! Handmade by Burnt Desserts right here in Michigan.
While I was standing there admiring the rest of her work a Maker Faire representative comes up to the booth and gives her the editor’s choice Blue Ribbon. I looked over and said “It was for the bacon wasn’t it?”
“It was completely because of the bacon” she replied.
So bacon wins the day once again!
Unfortunately her Etsy shop is closed for the moment as she’s out doing the summer art fair circuit, but you can sign up for email alerts so when the store reopens you can go and get yourself some blue ribbon bacon.

What goes better with yesterday’s cake with bacon flavored frosting than some homemade bacon flavored ice cream of the future?
Alas no real bacon was used in the recipe, just Torani’s bacon flavored syrup, but still big props to her!
Check out the full recipe and step-by-step photo over at Instructable.

It’s the fabled Unicon, or is that Bacicorn? You say potato, I say potatoe…

It was a Lil’ Baird takeover last weekend as we had a trip to Disney On Ice followed by dinner at Rainforest Cafe. Unbeknownst to daddy, Saturday evenings at 6:30 are not the best time to get a quick table in the forest. So with over a hour to kill before we could be seated, we headed out to walk the mall.
Quick stop at the toy store, first thing I see…
Yeah, that’s right…it’s a Play-Doh breakfast play set. And what is that circled? Why some youngster is makin’ bacon!
I think Santa was providing me a sign. It may not be an item on Lil’s Christmas list, but I have a sneaky feelin’ there still may be one under the tree come the 25th.
