Fifty Shades of Bacon

Okay, this is cracking me the heck up!

It's an "erotic recipe book"!

Honestly, it doesn't seem to be very NSFW, it just has some kinda racy titles for the sections. Just browsing through it, I think I might pick it up. The recipes look pretty good!

Here is the description:
Fifty Shades of Bacon is an erotic cookbook that delves into the full bacon experience. Ok, it is not erotic at all, but it is a tongue in cheek delivery of some great bacon recipes. Everything from basic bacon bits to bacon ice cream to bacon au gratin and alfredo. If you are into bacon, want an interesting conversation piece or are looking for a present for the meat lover in your life, this title is for you. This is a softcover book that has 62 pages and 50 recipes.

OMG. This exists!

I need to try this gadget SOON! My last attempt at bacon bowls was not-so-good and maybe these will help!

April Fool's!

What were the bacon Fools this year?
I found two and they were both released at least a few days before the first, so the suspension of disbelief had a chance to build.

From J&D's site - The bacon condom!
Good old J&D made a bacon condom this year!
I love those guys! And I would probably buy this, just to leave them laying around.

Scope's bacon-flavored mouthwash.

Scope came up with bacon flavored mouthwash!
This, on the other hand... nah... pass.

Already waiting for next year!

From the Bacon Bacon Facebook page
So, the latest American obsession is with the food truck.

Couple that with another great American obsession, and you get BACON BACON!

It's a food truck specializing in bacon!

Unfortunately, if you're not in the San Francisco area, you probably won't get to see this gem.  Unless, of course, the Bacon Bacon truck idea spreads like wildfire and they franchise out all over the country and then everyone can just walk up and... oops, getting a bit excited there.

Inside Scoop SF has a nice article about Bacon Bacon:
So what’s on the menu? Bacon, obviously. There will be six sandwiches, all made with bacon (though some can be made without): A pork belly and fried egg one, a grilled cheese number, the L.G.B.T (lettuce, goat cheese, bacon and tomato), pork meatball banh mi (featuring bacon in place of the traditional pate), broccoli rabe with bacon, and the requisite “Bacon Bacon Burger.”

On the side, there will be french fries, fried with rosemary and sage, salted and topped with parmesan; there is the option to get them “dirty” with fried pork belly trimmings. Angelus has also made a deal with San Mateo-based Devil’s Canyon to serve their root beer on tap.

Mmmmmm... sounds delicious!

Want to connect directly with Bacon Bacon and see when they'll be rolling down the hills of San Fran?  Go to their Facebook page and give them a like! I'm going to like them RIGHT NOW!

Yep.  Next time I'm in the bay area, I'll be looking for them.

Green Bean Bacon Bundles

©How Sweet It Is
Bacon can be healthy.  Kinda.  Sorta.
Don't these just look amazing?

In my quest for new bacon recipes, I stumbled upon How Sweet It Is, a blog by the lovely Jessica about food.  Jessica loves bacon too, so it's no surprise that she posted this delicious looking recipe!

Green Bean Bacon Bundles
makes about 10-12 bundles
1 pound fresh green beans
10-12 slices of thick-cut bacon
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

You'll have to go visit her site for the rest of the recipe!

While you're there, check out the other recipes in her bacon tag as well.  I'll definitely be visiting her often.

Which Bacon?

You know, I figured I'd better pimp my go-to brand of bacon.

While I'm always looking for new and awesome types of bacon, I do have one brand that I will buy for my day-to-day needs.  That brand is Wright Brand Bacon.

I just find Wright to be a consistently good bacon. It's perfectly smoked and has a bit thicker cut without being too thick. It bakes, wraps, weaves and grills beautifully.

Yeah, it is a bit more expensive. I think my supermarket sells it for around $9 for the 24oz size. "Regular" bacon is around $5 for a pound, so it's really not that bad. And... the package is resealable!

And it's worth it. Trust your Bacon Goddess.

Anyway, there's the pimpage for my brand of choice!

Go give their wonderfully fun website a visit or like them on the Facebook, they're very interactive with their fans!

Starry Night - in BACON!

I've been out-of-hand for a bit and sadly neglecting my bacon blogging, so I figured I'd return with something so delicious it will give you a whole new appreciation for art!

Yes, this is Van Gogh's Starry Night... recreated in bacon!

This Instructable by CopperTwist, entitled "Van Gogh for Breakfast", will run you through how to make your own Starry Night out of bacon. So artfully delicious!

You know what's cool? People have seen this and been inspired to create their own bacon art!

Chow Bella made a portrait of famous Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio.

Here's a tutorial on how to make your own bacon art by Alexander Ross. Complete with a creepy bacon baby!

Yep. My appreciation for art has grown a hundredfold today!

Baconnection - The App for Bacon Lovers!

What's this?

An app for bacon lovers?

But only for Android?

Damn it!

(The Bacon Goddess enjoys iGadgets and uses a crappy old flip phone. *frowny face*)

Baconnection is available on the Android market right now and it looks like so much fun!  I will hope that they develop it for iPad sometime in the future.

So... what does it do?  I DON'T KNOW BECAUSE IT'S NOT ON ITUNES!

But the website tells us that it's recipes, trivia and a game:

We've assembled an incredible variety of recipes with bacon in them, from bacon soups to bacon salad, bacon wrapped treats to bacon wrapped meals, bacon burgers to bacon pasta, even bacon with chocolate. No matter how much you already love bacon, you'll discover new ways to cook bacon and new ways to make bacon delicious.

Bacon Bits lets you snack on bite-size trivia quizzes. You won't believe how many fun bacon facts you'll find out.

You've never enjoyed bacon like this before. Baconnection™ is a fun new riff on a familiar game, challenging you to make "Baconnections™" between the unlikeliest ingredients and bacon. Can you link from guacamole to bacon in six recipes or less? How about scotch? Mahi mahi? The higher your score, the cleverer your connections, and the faster you fly, the more likely you are to win fun badges. Can you become a Baconnoisseur?

And it's only 99 cents.

Yes, iPad version, please!

Well what do you know? I posted on Baconnection's Facebook wall asking after an iTunes version and they responded nigh immediately!  Look!  Look!
As luck would have it dear Bacon Goddess, an iPhone version is on it's way and should be available the second week of May. We'll be sure to post on our fan page once we've got final approval to go live in the iTunes store! Stay tuned!

Bacon Roses!

Photo by kaptaink_cg for Instructables article
First off, thanks to EVERYONE who sent me the photo. But special thanks to Jessica for finding the instructions to make these!

Yes, the photo was making the rounds after being on failblog as a WIN, but exactly HOW do you make these beautiful bacon roses? By following the instructions by kaptaink_cg, here on Instructables!  They say:

Flowers make a nice gift to the friend that needs a smile or for that special someone in your life. Roses are even better. But sometimes even roses don't cut it. Sometimes you need something a little more non-cliché, something...extraordinary... Sometimes, you need BACON.

It actually looks pretty easy to do! I'm not sure that I will try this, but it's nice to know how - just in case.

Sausage? Bacon? Why Choose?

Look at this. Would you just look at this beautiful thing!

It's like a heavenly union of breakfast meats!

Pork and Bacon Sausage Roll is available nation-wide - just put your zip in the store locator and it will spit out where to find it near you.

I believe that we will be having this for breakfast next weekend. With biscuits and gravy I think. Sausage bacon gravy.  Then we will have a review.

My friend Henri of the bacon-wrapped meatloaf recipe found this. I have awesome friends.
