Someone felt the world was devoid of bacon frosting and bacon lube and fixed that problem. Which one should I try first?

Bacon Pancakes

October 18, 2011 - 8:59 pm

Each month I receive a Tasting Box from Foodzie, filled with 6 or 7 artisan items I wouldn't otherwise buy. This month's Tasting Box included Grade B Maple Syrup from Ben's Sugar Shack. Of course, only one thing comes to mind when I think of syrup...pancakes! Now, I'm not really a big breakfast person, but every now and then I'll have a craving for pancakes that I cannot satiate any other way. In this case, I blame my friend Carrie, who made pancakes over the weekend to try out her Tasting Box Syrup, and that planted the seed in my head. That seed must have sprouted this evening, because as I was leaving work I had breakfast for dinner on my mind.

Review Lardon Truck

September 17, 2011 - 6:56 pm

When the food truck trend first emerged, I had a hard stance on it: there's no way I'd follow a "restaurant" on Twitter just so I could find where it was parked if I had a craving for it. Ridiculous. My stance has loosened a bit lately thanks to The Truck Stop at Beverly and La Brea, simply because it's on my way home from work and I know that there will be trucks there. Since I don't have a taste for any trucks in particular it works out well. My dinner will have variety, I get to try something new, and I don't have to deal with Twitter or worse, Facebook.

More Things To Do With Flat Beer

August 31, 2011 - 10:25 pm

Two posts in two days, courtesy of Lifehacker. Can you tell the enormous amount of guilt I feel for not having a better post? Long story short, the acid from the beer will fend off pests and the sugars will nourish your plants.

Polish Wood Furniture with Stale Beer

August 30, 2011 - 10:06 pm

Just last weekend, I mentioned that we should cook something with bacon and/or beer so that I'd have something to post for the website. Thirty Eight games of Starcraft II later, it was never done, and therefore, I'm going on almost two months without posting a recipe. I'm confident this isn't going to be the weekend for it either, since we're going to Palm Springs. So, in the mean time, I leave you with a Lifehacker tip that you can use old, stale, flat beer to polish your wood surfaces. It's probably crazy to think that you might have leftover beer for such an occasion, but file this one away somewhere in the recesses of your brain just in case.

Newcastle Shadow Billboard

August 15, 2011 - 7:36 pm

My friend Stephenie at A Bear in the Kitchen alerted me to an article on the Huffington Post about a Newcastle billboard presently on display in the San Diego area. Basically, a team of artists took about 3000 Newcastle bottle caps and placed them on a billboard. By day, it looks like 3000 bottle caps on a billboard. By night, it looks like a man reaching for a Newcastle. In the age of over saturation of advertising, I applaud Newcastle for stepping outside the box and making us take notice. Plus, I like Newcastle. A lot.

Review Coolhaus Chocolate Chip Cookie and Candied Bacon Ice Cream Sandwich

August 2, 2011 - 8:19 pm

I have a confession to make. I really, really wanted to try the Thai Iced Tea Ice Cream sandwich, but for the sake of this blog I got the Candied Bacon Ice Cream one. It's not that bacon in a dessert sounds bad to me. In fact, I got my ice cream maker with the sole purpose of making a batch of bacon ice cream. One of the best cookies I've ever eaten was a bacon chocolate chip cookie. It's just that Thai Iced Tea Ice Cream sounds incredible. Now that I've got this Candied Bacon Ice Cream Sandwich in the bag, I feel free to purchase any other Coolhaus flavor guilt free.

Bacon Wrapped Cheddar Meat Loaf

July 3, 2011 - 2:27 pm

If you have any known health issues, I suggest you stop reading here. This is bad for your heart, your cholesterol, your weight, and probably your bones and even your ears. Other than the magnificent taste, I'm pretty sure there is not a single redeeming thing about this dish nutritionally. But I also think this is something you have to make once in your life. If you ever find yourself on death row, it would make a great last meal. I'd die with a smile on my face if this were my last meal. Adapted from AllRecipes.
