The last time we visited with Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) he was making a mouthwatering Bacon Weave Quesadilla. Nick and his marvelous woven bacon are back, this time with/as a truly tantalizing Bacon Weave Taco:
“I know that tacos with shells made out of bacon have been done before, but none of the ones I’ve seen looked very appetizing to me. It seems like people sort of took the easy way out when making them and just tossed their bacon over a metal object, made sure the strips overlapped a little so they’d stick together and either baked or deep fried it like that so their shells just end up looking like squares of bacon that have been folded in half. Long story short, most of the bacon taco shells out there just don’t look very taco-shaped.”
Nathan Shields, master of creating truly awesome pancakes (previously featured here), recently created something that might just be better than breakfast in bed: a homemade pancake breakfast that’s shaped like a Magic Treehouse.
We can’t stop thinking of tasty ways to decorate this amazing meal. Strawberry slices would make sweet shingles for the house itself. Make a ladder out of bacon. Add whipped cream for a snowy winter scene or syrup for rain. Just be sure to make your additions quickly, because pancakes are best while they’re still hot and fresh.
Proving yet again that bacon makes everything better, Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) made mouthwatering quesadillas by replacing everyday flour tortillas with awesome tortillas made of woven strips of bacon. And thus the Bacon Weave Quesadilla was born and the day got that much better.
Visit DudeFoods for the recipe and then please considering inviting us over to enjoy them with you.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) has done it again. It’s another awesome exercise in overindulgence, this time in the form of a mouthwatering ice cream cone made out of a large chocolate chip cookie. WANT!

As much as we love a tasty donut (and we really, really do), on April 1st, if someone offers you a donut it might be wise to think twice before taking a bite.
Jill from Kitchen Fun With My Three Sons came up with an awesome April Fool’s Day prank in which a complete meatloaf dinner has been convincingly disguised as half a dozen Dunkin’ Donuts. She calls them April Fools Dunkin Phonuts.
The donuts are made of ground turkey meatloaf, covered in mashed potato frosting, and finished with a chopped bell pepper sprinkles. But that’s not all. The deceptive donuts are served up with a piping hot cup of fresh… mushroom gravy.
We’re guessing that these “phonuts” are probably pretty tasty in their own right, but that’s only if you and your tastebuds know what you’re getting into. But hey, that’s decidedly not what April Fool’s Day is about, right?

Dear Internet - I heard you like bacon, so I made this for you. Happy Easter!
Easter without plenty of chocolate and other sweets is pretty much unimaginable, but the folks over Atomic Shrimp created this awesome Bacon Easter Egg, reminding us that a happy Easter is also a meaty Easter.
The egg itself is made of woven strips of bacon - a beautiful sight to behold. It contains “a couple of nice Cumberland sausages and some fried slices of black pudding - also on the plate; fried tomato, mushroom, potato slices, fried bread, baked beans and a fried egg (cooked to perfection with a liquid yolk) - and a nice mug of tea on the side.”

He says to serve, “decorate with mustard. You do not have to put the image of Christ on every corn dog. If you have any martyrs in your family, feel free to squirt on their likeness and share it with them to show that you know how much they themselves have suffered, which will give them great comfort.”
“They’re more substantial than a communion wafer, and more delicious, too. And, given the nature of hot dogs, you still won’t be certain from which part of the body they came.”
Head over to Food for the Thoughtless for the recipe and instructions.

Jessie Oleson, our favourite Dessert Detective and maven of sweetness otherwise known as Cakespy (previously featured here), has outdone herself once again. This ooey-gooey creation is a Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg.
A traditional Scotch Egg is a savoury treat consisting of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg, while no healthier, is all about sweetness:
“The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs. Though in my opinion, these have slightly more complex flavor thanks to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookie crumbs. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a nice texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior.”
Looking at these photos makes our teeth hurt and our stomachs rumble. Oh sweet Cadbury Creme Eggs, how we’ll miss you once you’re gone for the year.

During the cooking process the pasta is temporarily removed from cooking pot and portioned into bags containing food colouring. As you can see the results are pretty awesome.
