Another story about Bacon where it says:

"So why are so many people suddenly so into bacon? James thinks it's 
about people taking guilty pleasure in eating something that's 
nutritionally taboo, and then extracting even more bliss by 
exponentially increasingly the decadence factor. A hot dog is bad for 
you. A hot dog wrapped in bacon and sandwiched between two oblong maple 
doughnuts is hard-core food porn.

"If it's bad to start with, it's like, how can we make it slightly 
badder to get more attention," James says."


And there's also a new book too

Heather Lauer started the Bacon Unwrapped blog four years ago on a lark, 
but she drew a following, and now her book, Bacon: A Love Story, 
published by William Morrow, comes out in May. On Amazon you can buy the 
book with a jar of baconnaise.

And there's a recipe for *Candied bacon martinis which calls for *
4 slices smoked bacon; 3 Tbsps. light-brown sugar;12 ounces premium 
vodka; 8 ounces Applejack brandy
4 ounces amaretto liqueur; 4 ounces maple syrup, preferably grade B; 8 
thin slices tart apple, such as Granny Smith
