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:

Maple Bacon Cupcakes!!! [

Better with Bacon – Coffee Glazed Bacon…

I LOVE bacon. I also love coffee.  So how could this go wrong?

Coffee Glazed Bacon


  • 6 to 8 slices of Smoked Bacon
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Hot Espresso
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper


You’re gonna have to pop over to Instructables to get those (and see step-by-step photos).

Saturday Morning Video Funhouse

Today’s video is in the spirit of my BACON SUNDAY announcement yesterday.

This just killed me…it’s short, just :15 seconds, but it’s brilliant with a terrific payoff!

Oh youtubes…is there nothing I can’t find on you (outside of Viacom programming)?

Have a great Saturday!

They don’t call him “Annoying Orange” for nothing…

If you can get through the first 30 seconds there are some funny bits in here.

Bacon, We’re Gonna Have Some Bacon…

Sorry I wasn’t around yesterday, I had a horse in the Michigan primary election last night and I’m glad to say he’s moving on to the general election. And to think I knew him when…

Anywho, I hope this makes up for it…

Thanks to Meat Wizard for this little ditty that is now ABSOLUTELY STUCK IN MY HEAD!

Oh, stop by TDB’s Facespace page tomorrow for a chance to win some free food ;-)

Makin’ Bacon…Hormel Black Label

Over these last few days, I have been rather distracted.  What with MSU going off and makin’ the finals and then breakin’ my heart and all.  But now it’s time we got back to Bacon Bizzness.

Strangely, this is only the third “Makin’ Bacon” post in the four long months this blog has been in existence.  Shame on me.

So let’s get to it!  Today, it’s Hormel Black Label Bacon!

Introducing The Baconery!!

Out of the blue, I received an email from this guy Wesley with the subject  “Have you seen this?”  This was the email in it’s entirety:


Life is Just Better with Bacon

Sent from my iPad

So there you go!  Although skeptical and against my better judgement, I clicked the link and what I found on the other side was this…(go ahead, click, experience for yourself, I’ll wait)

Yeah, right?!  A slick, professional site that was selling some incredibly good looking bacon baked goods!  Okay, maybe this Wesley guy was legit…so I write him back asking if he’d like to provide some “samples”.  About three days later, this arrives…

Let’s get this to the kitchen… [
