Bacon Poetry Slam

Nick Offerman, the guy who plays the alpha-est of all males Ron Swanson on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, sure loves his bacon. Check out this video of the actor professing his love for the sacred meat.

Man Eats: Kate Baked Cookies

Came home the other night to find Kate Baked Cookies waiting for me.

Knowing that I heart bacon, Kate sent over a half dozen of her new concoctions: freshly-baked Butterscotch Bacon Cookies and Double Chocolate Bacon Cookies to try.
