Maker Faire in The D – Bacon All Around Us…

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.

Bacon Pic of the Day – Really? REALLY?!

I had some time to kill this morning before I headed off to “Donuts with Daddy” at Lil’s school and I had $10 burning a hole in my pocket so I stopped by a local establishment for breakfast.

My meal came with two slices of bacon. This is what was presented to me…

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! And just plain old sad!

The Future of Bacon Ice Cream…

What goes better with yesterday’s cake with bacon flavored frosting than some homemade bacon flavored ice cream of the future?

This AWESOME mom decided to play with molecular gastronomy for Instructable’s Mad Science Fair and created her own version of “Dippin’ Dots“.

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.

Bacon Boutique – Bacon Necklaces

Oh those talented crafters over at Etsy.com…is there nothing they can’t make?

Like this for instance:


What girl wouldn’t want packaged bacon around her neck? And guys, it’s only $9.50 (plus s/h).

How about this?

Bacon Boutique – Dress You Up…

We’ve seen bacon neck wear in the past (here & here), but this particular one has that certain, I don’t know, je ne
sais quoi…

Blue suit, nice crisp white shirt, bacon tie.  That’s a man who means bizness.

Bringin’ Up a Bacon Baby – Baby’s Makin’ Breakfast…

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.
