    If you've ever found yourself asking "How can I get more bacon into my life?", this recipe is perfect for you. I first got this idea when I saw the cookies on an episode of Ace of Cakes. I found a few other recipes online, but I decided to use my favorite chocolate chip recipe, and add bacon. This recipe yields about 24 cookies.

    Oct. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Meat prices are poised to extend a 14 percent rally this year that drove U.S. retail costs to the highest levels since the 1980s as surging corn futures prevent livestock producers from expanding their herds. The U.S. cattle herd in July was the smallest since 1973 and the number of breeding hogs last month was near the lowest ever, government data show. Corn futures jumped to a two-year high today and the price of the main feed ingredient is more than 70 percent above the 10-year average.

    Original title: Cafe owner ordered to remove extractor fan because neighbour claimed 'smell of frying bacon offends Muslims' A hard-working cafe owner has been ordered to tear down an extractor fan - because the smell of her frying bacon 'offends' Muslims. Planning bosses acted against Beverley Akciecek, 49, after being told her next-door neighbour's Muslim friends had felt 'physically sick' due to the 'foul odour'. Councillors at Stockport Council in Greater Manchester say the smell from the fan is 'unacceptable on the grounds of residential amenity'. The fan has been in Beverley's Snack Shack takeaway in the Shaw Heath area...

Following a private meeting with Imam Fido Rowf, the Roverand Terry Bones held a press conference where he announced that he would continue with his plans to celebrate the Islamic feast of Eid by feasting on a Koran. “I’ve had a look at the Koran,” stated Bones, “and it appears kind of dry, so I figured I’d add some bacon or pork sausage. I mean, you can’t have a fatwa without ‘f-a-t’, right?” Jones continued, “I’m not against the Koran as a whole, in fact, I’ve book-marked some of my...

  • Increase in bacon prices helping pork producers regain profits

    Tipton — Without it, it’s just a boring veggie sandwich. With it, it’s a one-of-a-kind taste perfect for a hot, summer evening. During the summer — especially in August when produce is fresh — nothing compliments tomatoes and lettuce on a sandwich like bacon. That’s pork bacon: Bacon substitutes need not apply. However, consumers are finding it’s costing a lot more to make a BLT sandwich because of the rising price of bacon. Consumers are currently paying record-high prices for bacon; prices for other pork products are also expected to increase because the number of pork farmers and the size...

    There’s something about the dish known as bacon explosion that’s typically American. If you haven’t come across it, the recipe comprises Italian sausagemeat and syrupy barbecue sauce all bound up in a sort of roll with a lattice of fatty bacon, then smoked on a barbecue at a rate of one hour per inch. The whole thing contains about half a kilo of fat. The dish emerged in 2008 on the website BBQ Addicts and quickly grew to become a genuine internet phenomenon, attracting more than half a million page-views. The recipe is easy to follow and if you can’t...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - American taxpayers will pay the imam behind plans for a mosque near the Manhattan site of the Sept. 11 attacks $3,000 in fees for a three-nation outreach trip to the Middle East that will cost roughly $16,000, the State Department said Wednesday. The department said Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf will get a daily $200 honorarium for the 15-day tour to Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, which is intended to promote religious tolerance. Airfare is included, as well as the standard federal government per diem for expenses and lodging in each of the cities he will...

    Between the cream puffs and everything you can get on a stick, food at the Wisconsin State Fair is a dish best served over the top. Ladies and gentlemen, meet 2010's early favorite: the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger. Sold at the Machine Shed tent at the fair, the $5 burger features the normal patty and melted cheese, but with a Krispy Kreme doughnut for a bun. For an extra dollar, patrons can top the burger with last year's big hit: chocolate-covered bacon on a stick (furthering the debate on whether the new dish is dinner or dessert). The calorie count: 1,000,...

    On hoagy62's suggestion, I bought a sampler pack of JD's Bacon Salt. (from Amazon) It had 4 different mixes: Original, Natural, Peppered, and Hickory. I have tried them all now, and I found them to be tasty. May favorite at present. is the Peppered, and the one I am least impressed by, is the Hickory. But that may be just a matter of taste buds, and that maybe I really didn't put enough of it on, to properly appreciate the taste. I am intrigued about the possibilities for using it in other dishes, the most natural one being eggs. But...

    ... A new study from the Harvard School of Public Health suggests that the heart risk long associated with red meat comes mostly from processed varieties such as bacon, sausage, hot dogs and cold cuts—and not from steak, hamburgers and other non-processed cuts. The finding is surprising because both types of red meat are high in saturated fat, a substance believed to be partly responsible for the increased risk of heart disease. But the new study raises the possibility that when it comes to meat, at least, the real bad actor may be salt. Processed meats generally have about four...
