Bonkers for Bacon! 7 Sizzling Bacon-Bursting Recipes

As Homer Simpson succinctly put it: "Mmmmm ... bacon." It may not be the most eloquent of statements, but we know exactly what he means, that perfect punch of salty meatiness that's often been described as kryptonite to even hardcore vegetarians.

Shrimp BLT with Pesto Mayo: 30-Minute Meal

Here's a variation on the classic BLT--a shrimp BLT with pesto mayo and bacon--that's maybe more exciting, certainly just as easy to make, and possibly even a bit healthier. Yes, we still use bacon (it wouldn't be a BLT without bacon, but we like turkey bacon in this particular sandwich). The shrimp gets dressed with a light mayo containing basil pesto, and the whole combo rests between slices of whole wheat toast.

will eating red meat lead you to certain death?

With the first day of spring just around the corner, we've got red meat on the brain. We're all too anxious to fire up our grills in anticipation of hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, and big, juicy steaks. All bacon-wrapped, of course.

Behold the Bacon Pig: A Big Break with Thanksgiving Tradition

We get it: whether you brine it, deep fry it or smoke it, for some people, Thanksgiving turkey is always going to be, well, a little boring. And we're certainly not going to challenge anyone's love of bacon. But as a centerpiece worthy of a Norman Rockwell painting, we'll admit we're a little dubious about Clint Cantwell's bacon pig. Now, you have to understand that Cantwell is a barbecue guy, a writer for and a team member of the Smoke in Da Eye BBQ competition. Turkey -- eh, it just doesn't thrill him. So a few yearsread more

Double-Bacon Corn Dog: Iowa State Fair Food

The Iowa State Fair -- some say the country's best -- is in full swing. Until the fair closes next Sunday, August 19, I'll be bringing you a daily first-hand account of the fascinating, often bizarre (but always fun) food items I found there on my recent visit: The double-bacon corn dog has got to be this year's over-the-top fried food item, so much so it even made the national news. The concept: a hot dog is wrapped in two slices of bacon, then dipped in its usual corn-dog batter and fried.

10 Easy Appetizers for the Perfect Baby Shower

Easy appetizer recipes for baby showers are the concern of ladies only. Since ladies are the only ones who have babies, Ladies should be the ones who go to baby showers. No Men allowed! In any case, Men don't usually enjoy cooing over tiny garments -- even in our post-sexist age. You can certainly give a co-ed pre-baby party, but that's what it will be: a party. Not a shower. The best baby showers take place in the late afternoon, during tea time. Not that you have to serve tea! Just make sure that the non-alcoholic drinks are moreread more

Hot 'Corn' Dog! -- Yeah, with Double Bacon

Be honest, now: A trip to the state fair isn't really about a ride on the Ferris wheel, checking out that ginormous hog, or listening to that concert featuring some of the worst bands of the '80s. No, the state fair is about consuming lots and lots of food. Specifically, the most obnoxious, over-the-top, I can't believe I'm actually standing in line to pay for this, gut bomb of a dish you can possibly imagine.

How to Keep Seafood Fresh: Smart Storage

Successfully storing seafood begins with buying truly fresh seafood. Look for fish and shellfish displayed under refrigeration on thick beds of ice. It should smell clean and like the ocean, not "fishy." If you've gone to the trouble and expense of buying good, fresh seafood, use it right away. If you can't cook seafood the day you buy it, keep it in the fridge on ice for about a day (fill a baking pan or large bowl with crushed ice and set the seafood on the ice). Fish fillets or shrimp can be wrapped in plastic; other shellfishread more

31 Days of Great Grilling: Peachy Po-Boy Sandwiches

A great grilling recipe for a BLT! Or, more accurately, a grilled BSP -- an amazing sandwich with bacon, grilled shrimp, and peaches -- with what a bad menu-writer might call "a bit of Cajun flair." Nevertheless, Cajun-inspired this definitely is: Po-boys are New Orleans born and bred. Like any traditional food, po-boys have mythic origins. Their name may come from the French "pourboire," meaning "tip." But most of us prefer to believe that po-boys were created by Benny and Clovis Martin, who scrounged up fillings to make sandwiches for striking streetcar workers. They called the strikers "poor boys,"read more

Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Sandwiches? What Has the World Come To?

If you happen to be in Southern California this summer, you can get your hands on the latest of what seems to be a never-ending parade of gut-busting American "culinary" innovations: the Krispy Kreme sloppy joe. Do we even have to explain what it is? Take your basic sloppy sloppy joe mix and stuff it between two halves of a Krispy Kreme doughnut. But contrary to some media reports, this is not the brain child of Krispy Kreme. It's the work of chef Charlie Boghosian of Chicken Charlie's, a mobile emporium of sorts dedicated to all manner ofread more
