People are obsessed with bacon. Why? Because Bacon is awesome, that’s why. So while I usually strive to be healthy and offer up healthy recipes on my site, I’m going to go out out on a limb and give you the best of Bacon from my bacon loving BBQ buddies, my adventures on pinterest, and even a few of my own recipes.

Hooray for bacon!
