Goodbye Summer Muffins

I am generally a summer Grinch. This summer wasn’t so bad. Lots of rain and a ruined garden. But it’s better than the past ten summers, I’d say. Regardless, I’m ready to usher in fall. But before that, i need some closure on this past season… So shove some of these Goodbye Summer Muffins in your…

Grandpa Salad

I was having a conversation with my mom about foods that we ate twenty years ago. A lot of it was stuff that she used to cook for us… but that turned to a conversation about stuff my Grandma used to make. Cinnamon ice cream, fried walleye, cheese sandwiches… and then my mom mentions wilted…

American Pie

Patty Pizza, Patty Pizza, Bacon’s Jam Fry Me A Pickle As Fast As You Can Texture. It’s more important than most people give it credit for. It can be the make or break element of a dish. It’s also psychological and shit. I mean, I’m no psychologist… but I know having a lick of a…

Coco-Mango Rice with Pork Belly

I’m going to be upfront with you. I’m not a full-time food blogger. I have a day job. Sometimes, it’s a time-consuming day job. Sometime I don’t have a lot of time to write a full-on story here about why I made a recipe and what it means to me. I made coconut mango rice…

Innies and Outies

This is my third attempt at writing this column. The problem is… there is so much to say and so many different ways to say it. Honestly, writers much better than me have done it justice where I will inevitably come up short. My first column was a short story about a society where people…

Oinkies

When I started Bacon & Legs, I was more of a pun fan than a bacon fan. Sure, I loved it. Who doesn’t? ESPECIALLY recovering vegetarians. It was a remarkable treat. But the blog was more or less about fun comfort food with some wit. A few years later and bacon has woven itself into…

The Real BLT (Bacon, Legs and Tomato)

For years now you have been deceived. You’ve spent your whole life without the proper understanding of something that is supposed to be classic and perfect. I’m here to bring you the truth.
