Bacon Wrapped Cheese Filled Figs!

Foodwhirl friend Talk of Tomatoes sends us the lovely idea for Bacon Week! Grilled food is always fun, and as Janelle points out, there’s nothing wrong with grilling in the winter.. I have been told—even chastised—for not heating up the grill in the dead of winter. I am beginning to heed that advice, taking off the grill cover once in awhile for a seafood or beef marinated skewer, some easy to make burg…

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

You know it’s really hard to do a bacon recipe when you don’t eat bacon!   It’s not that I don’t like bacon, I really love it!  But about 5 years ago, I somehow became allergic to all pork, beef and lamb, so bacon had to be struck from my meal plans.  No BLT, no bacon & eggs, no BBQ pork…. so sad!!   That said, we were headed to a friends house for a cookout and I needed to take som…

Bacon! How about Bacon Vodka?

Bacon! How about Bacon Vodka?

Welcome to day 4 of Bacon Week! This is an oldie but goodie… I remember when Brownie Points posted this way back in 2008 and I was inspired to go draw up a cartoon pig bacon vodka label*, and give a friend of mine a “Bacon Vodka Kit”** for Christmas. But maybe, just maybe, you’ve never seen this, and never been inspired by the idea of Vodka, with the Essense of Bacon. I could totally see t…

I recently had to cook a colossal amount of the crispy stuff for my daughter’s band fundraiser… A POTA…

Twitter friend @rit responded to our call for Bacon Related Goodies for Bacon Week, with this lovely idea! (Well, technically he started out with the idea of French Toast Bread Pudding with Bacon… anyone want to take on that challenge?). Danae, aka The Busty Baker came up with this delish sounding recipe for French Toast and Bacon Cupcakes.. .she even won a competition with them. I must say they look…

Bacon! Bacon, Cheddar, Jalapeno Cornbread

Bacon! Bacon, Cheddar, Jalapeno Cornbread

One of my favorite meals growing up was a simple bowl of navy beans and cornbread.  Every time I would go to my grandparents’ house to visit, my grandmother would always fix this simple but flavorful meal for me the first night I was there.  I still love this combination, and make it occasionally for my family.  Today, since it’s bacon week here at Foodwhirl, I’m shaking things up a bit and…
