Well I know I said I'd be off today, but I was doing my weekly post for Davis Life Magazine (called the Early Girl Foodie Weekend) and I covered the California State Fair that opened last Wednesday. Every year they announce a new food item, usually a greasy, fried abomination. This year was no different (for example, fried scorpions are a new menu item), but I was quite intrigued by the chocolate covered bacon. I had heard of people making bacon ice cream so this seemed interesting. I made my own, veggie style, and I have to say the results were not that bad. I added some creative enhancements - freshly cracked salt, red pepper flakes, brown sugar and banana. I would have to say, remembering what bacon used to taste like, that unless you are a veggie, go with the real stuff. The fakin' bacon just doesn't have the fat and salt punch. Nevertheless, it's a fun little dessert.

A professional essay writer can tackle any academic subject and can provide you with a high-quality paper in a timely manner. Their experience and expertise in writing will help you boost your grades. Choosing the right writer for your assignment can make all the difference between getting a passing grade and failing your classes. With the right writer, you can enjoy a high-quality essay while avoiding countless hours of stress. The service's writers are available 24/7, so you can always count on a timely delivery of your paper.
You can also opt for a service that can do my paper for me cheaply, but only if you choose one that's reliable. Cheap writing services are unreliable and may not complete your project on time. Therefore, you must choose a reputable service that will do it on time and meets your needs. You may not want to spend too much on a cheap service that will only end up costing you more money in the long run.
If you're worried about plagiarism, consider hiring a research paper writer. You can contact them directly and get a finished paper within minutes. And the best part is, it's legal! As long as you choose a reputable writing company, you'll be safe. They never break the law and deliver non-plagiarized content. Just be sure to check their reputation and sample work before you choose one. Finally, choose a writing company with transparent policies and testimonials from previous clients.
Moreover, you need to ensure that the paper writer you're hiring is reputable and can deliver the type of work you need. There are many freelance writers online that will do the job for you, so you need to be sure that the writer you hire can deliver a quality paper. However, you should also check the online reviews of the company you're choosing before ordering from them. You should order research papers only when you're certain that the service you're choosing will meet your expectations.

Ingredients

  • 1 package fakin' bacon (I used Smart Bacon)
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • Creative toppings: brown sugar, salt, red pepper flakes, banana, coconut, chopped nuts, etc.

Preparation

  1. In a double boiler over medium low heat, melt chocolate chips.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat toaster oven to 450 degrees or a skillet over medium heat. Spray surface with cooking spray. Lay 5-6 strips of bacon in a single layer and spray the tops of them with cooking spray. Cook about 3 minutes per side in the skillet and about 5 minutes per side in the toaster oven. Remove and let cool.
  3. When chocolate is melted, dip bacon strips in or paint chocolate on the strips with a pastry brush. Add your creative toppings. Put strips on a cooking sprayed wire rack over a plate or on sprayed wax paper. Put in the fridge for about 10 minutes so chocolate can harden. Then enjoy!
