Baconfest 2.0 was a success, but how can you fail when there is bacon involved? It was pot luck and the only rule was you had to bring a dish that included bacon. I personally cooked 8 pounds of bacon for the items I prepared. My contributions included bacon wrapped pork loin, bacon-spinach-pecan-blueberry stuffed porkContinue reading “Baconfest 2.0”
When in Boise try Bacon. This is restaurant that serves breakfast and brunch 7am-3pm. I can’t tell you anything about the rest of the menu but the Kurobuta Bacon was fantastic. I ate a pound for lunch.
Bacon makes me smile too!
Needed to contribute to a Christmas dinner at a friend’s house. I love cannolis but need to come up with a no sugar and no grains recipe. Looked up a few and melded them together to come up with these beauties. I purchased some cannoli tubes and thought I bought them too small until IContinue reading “Bacon cannolis #baconcannolis”

It wasn’t that difficult to pass up the free meal. There was just too muchContinue reading “Day #28 #turkeybacon #bacon #fasting #carbage”
I had to work a conference so getting an ample supply of bacon for the day was going to be next to impossible so I decided to fast throughout the day. When I started my 3 1/2 drive home around 3pm I stopped and picked up some of the Oscar Mayer Fully Cooked Bacon to muchContinue reading “Day 27 #bacon #fasting”
More traveling today so a pot of coffee and out the door. I did have to stop and pick up a watch. Snacked on the Oberto’s Bacon Jerky in the morning. Then for dinner I had packed away some of the slab bacon and ate it cold. Not ideal but sometimes you have to makeContinue reading “Day 26 #bacon”
