Hi everyone,

Wandering through the cookbook aisle of our library, this title immediately caught my eye – Bacon, a Love Story ~ A Salty Survey of Everyone’s Favorite Meat. I really wasn’t looking for a book on bacon, but it was calling me.

What a great book! It is divided into two parts: Bacon 101 and The Bacon Diet. It is a light fun read with some neat recipes. Now, they aren’t necessarily different than anything you’ve had ever, but presented in a different perspective.

It also has some fun facts – for instance, did you know A&W was the first restaurant chain to add bacon to a cheeseburger. Thank you A&W! The meat vegetarians miss the most is, of course, Bacon! To the point, they even make a tofu bacon.

Anyway, if you have a bacon lover, who also likes to cook, consider this book for your holiday list.

Take care,


Maddening crowds at the stores, annoying in-law visits, those cursed (yet well-intentioned) Salvation Army people outside the grocery stores with their bells… They all make you appreciate the true magic of Christmas – locking yourself in the basement with a gallon of egg-nog and drinking until you hallucinate the true reason for the season. THE BACON MESSIAH!

Our awesome friends over at What Do Bacon Do came up with this awesome ba-tivity scene to remind us that the holidays aren’t just about violent consumerism and increased rates of evergreen deforestation. It’s about BACON!

There’s also Santa, I suppose. Poor Santa. Year after year, house after house, Santa arduously stuffs your ill-gotten gains into some generic red and white sock-shaped travesty. His eyes blur and redden with boredom and resentment like a captive monkey forced to watch a VCR blink 12:00, 12:00, 12:00 for 400 years. Surprise Santa this year. Give him an opportunity to smile and laugh and say “This guy is awesome! I’m totally giving him extra presents this year. Elf #719! Toss me down that limited edition gold plated X-Box slash espresso maker! We’ve got a winner!” – Go get yourself a GIANT BACON STOCKING!

It’s already crispy! Just keep it warm by your fireplace and wait for it to magically swell with good things!

So Swing on over to WDBD or Etsy and get yourself some real holiday cheer!
