Bacon Pic of the Day – Ho, Ho, Yum…

Better Half and I took Lil’ to her first breakfast with Santa this morning.

Sittin’ there, wondering just exactly what the heck I got myself into and then this was placed right next to me…

Looks like I was a good boy this year!  Thanks Santa…

More Bacon Candy – The Sticky Pig…

It’s seems like I struck a nerve with that bacon caramel recipe yesterday as TDB has it’s highest number of visitors for one day.  KA-POW!

Never let it be said that I don’t “listen” to the will of the people.  You guys are interested in bacon candy, so more bacon candy you shall have.

These marvelous little morsels are from The Sticky Pig.  They do one thing and one thing only – candied bacon confections.  From the looks of these photos, they do that well.

Up above is the four pack featuring flavors; Coconut Curry Lime, The Elvis, S’mores and Apple Pecan Dulce de Leche.

These hand crafted beauties aren’t cheap (the four pack goes for $20) but I don’t think that’s gonna stop me from trying them.

Visit their site to see all their flavors and meet the self described “Bacon Vixen” who started it all.

Better with Bacon – Iceburg, Potato, Bacon Salad

Something like this makes a GREAT side dish with a grilled steak or even chicken.

I like salad, I like potatoes and I sure as all heck like bacon…why not put all three togther in a easy recipe???


The fine folks at Capital News 9 in Albany, NY did just that…

I might switch the lettuce to a romaine, switch the dressing to a light ranch…but each is own!

Gonna Be a Good Week…Gulp, Gulp…

I came home on Friday from work and on the door was a slip from UPS…what were they trying to deliver?


Oh, it’s on!  I’m drinkin’ this week!!!

I am breaking out my “American Bar” book to get the perfect home made Bacon (bloody) Mary recipe.

Not to mention, this week I begin my bacon infused bourbon test.

Oh alcohol…  ;-)  You are like my best friend.

Believe it or not, I wasn’t looking for bacon things today…I was looking for something fun for Lil’ Baird who will be celebrating birthday number one soon.  The interwebs sort of moved me to SappyMooseTree.com and lo and behold…BACON!


Aren’t these great.  Happy plush bacon magnets to greet you each and every morning, noon and night!

But wait…there’s more… [

Better with Bacon – Bacon and Gorgonzola Corn Bread Sliders…

Did you know that the “National Cornbread Festival” is this weekend in South Pittsburg, TN?

Me neither…but my life now seems a little bit fuller.

Turns out last year’s winner,  Lori Stephens, is making the media rounds throughout the Tennessee Valley showcasing last year’s WINNING recipe…her Bacon and Gorgonzola Corn Bread Sliders.

Look at that.  That is a blue ribbon cornbread!

Wanna make them yourself?  You can find the recipe over at WDEF.com.
