A lot of vegetarians I know miss the flavor of bacon and it is one of the hardest tastes to replicate when cooking. Unfortunately, for the most part, fake bacon just doesn’t pass muster; the texture, taste, and saltiness just don’t match. Now Quorn, maker of assorted imitation meats, has thrown its hat into the […]
Soup of the Day: Vegan Bacon Chili
This customizable recipe is perfect cold weather food.
Soup of the Day: Fasolka
I have to admit that I like canned soups and stews. It’s all kinds of wrong, but the enormous (and not particularly healthy) amounts of salt that go in them are a guilty pleasure for me. Still, as much as I like canned Fasolka (Polish bean stew), I can honestly say that my husband’s homemade […]
Lunchtime Poll: Bacon

Climate Change on Our Dinner Plates
Bacon, the Official Food of the Internet (meat division) is in trouble – and it’s not alone! This week saw several news stories about the potential impacts of climate change and increased carbon dioxide emissions on the foods we eat. From the sea to the land, our delicious meats and some of our delicious grains seem […]
The Best Damned Baked Beans Ever
This past weekend, I attended a barbecue with some of the other people in my doctoral program to watch some college football and eat some delicious food.

Attention Persephone readers: the Morbid Curiosity food column will not be appearing today. Why? Did Jen run out of old cookbooks with unusual recipes? Did she finally destroy her stomach lining? No! Of course not! It’s because I made a lovely quiche this week, and I’d rather talk about that instead. That sounds like a good […]
Guys, I know this may come as a shock to you, but this bacon-based food-like substance? It actually tasted pretty damn good! Granted, it’s probably the most artery-cloggingest thing (possibly tied with the Savory Meat Loaf) I have made so far. I have outlined my reasoning for this statement in the form of a short […]
Today’s Morbid Curiosity recipe comes from one of my cookbooks… in a round-about way: it was actually printed on a Campbell’s soup recipe brochure that was stuck inside one of my grandmother’s old cookbooks.
Many people are freaked out by the idea of hosting a brunch, thinking it too big or too complicated or requiring too much effort, but once you stop trying to be Ina Garten and just be yourself, you’ll love throwing brunches, too.
This week, I decided to go for the gusto and make something called “Bacon Wands”. What? No! That is not a bizarre euphemism for a part of the male anatomy! Get your filthy mind out of the gutter!
We Try It! – Bacon Chocolate Cupcakes
When my sister called me Friday to see if I would have time this weekend to bake cupcakes with her ““ which as anyone with siblings knows is code for “˜can I come over and watch you bake me some cupcakes that I will later claim as my own’ ““ I agreed on condition that […]
