Many of you may have been wondering why I've had so many recipes about bacon lately. Well, I can finally tell every one today. A friend of mine named Ben, sent me a message one day asking me if I'd help him write a cook book called 50 Shades of Bacon. I loved the title of it, and I love bacon, so I said sure why not?! Let's do this thing. It took a lot of work coming up with 50 different recipes that had bacon in it. There was plenty of bacon cooked and bacon grease used. I had so much in the end, I decided to make a bacon scented candle. Some of the recipes in the book I already have on my website: Bacon Pesto, Bacon and Egg Breakfast Tacos, and Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich.
This is another recipe from the book: Bacon S'mores. It's fairly easy to make to. Just dip some bacon in melted chocolate. Wait for it to cool. Make a s'mores like you normally do and use the chocolate covered bacon in place of the chocolate. Mix it up. Use chocolate graham crackers and different flavored marshmallows.

I love bacon as it I the universal food. Bacon and eggs for breakfast? Why thank you I think I will. BLT for lunch? Splendid idea. Bacon wrapped filet mignon for dinner? Absolutely!

I would like to think that bacon is the reason I am alive. I ooze bacon, maple or pepper I don't care. In my dreams; I hoped my parents conceived me in the back a Chevy Nova after consuming big bacon cheeseburgers chased by some bacon vodka. It's all but just a dream but on could hope. Just saying … I know it’s not to be true and I cry about it every night…
