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.”
Visit Anna’s blog to view more photos and read about how this wonderfully geeky meal was made.
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.
A Redditor named Tillamook spent his day off from work making these incredible awesome giant cardboard robot arms.
“Spent my day off putting together cardboard robot arms. A day well spent.”
We couldn’t agree more. Next we’d like to see Tillamook and a friend facing off while both wearing a pair of these amazing appendages. Giant cardboard robot arm battle!
It’s time for another visit to the Department of Awesome Adult Beverages: Ashley Bryce and Liana Cole over at Little Pink Blog have undertaken an awesome mixology project based on J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
If you’ve read the books or seen the movies you might be able to guess the name of the fiery beverage you see here. This is the Goblet of Fire, representing the magical flaming goblet from which the names of the
three four champions of the TriWizard Tournament were selected.
Here is the recipe:
1 oz vodka
1 oz blue curacao
3 oz lemonade
Pinch of cinnamon
Pour vodka, blue curacao, and lemonade into a goblet-type glass
Top with a splash of 151 proof rum
Light on fire
Add the pinch of cinnamon to the flames (cinnamon will spark)
*** Blow out flames before consuming! ***
If this awesome cocktail appeals to you, be sure to visit Little Pink Blog to read about more of Ashley and Liana’s creative Harry Potter-inspired drinks.
Just remember, Albus Dumbledore wants you to drink responsibly and never ride your broom after drinking.

As the creators of an entire Bacon Gift Shop, you know we love bacon more than almost anything. So it should come as no surprised that we were delighted and suddenly hungry when we first set eyes on these beautiful sugar cookies.
Jennifer of Not Your Mamma’s Cookie created the recipe for these awesomely enticing Bacon Cookies. They look so much like mouthwatering rashers of bacon! They’ve even got that distinct wavy form that all truly tasty bacon has as well as blackened peppery edges.
So how did she do it? Click here for the recipe and instructions.
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.”

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.
