Melvin Burns is hoping people's taste for bacon can help solve crimes.
I went through this phase where I baked the most simple, one-bowl-baking, f*ck up proof banana bread recipes, just so there was a sweet floating smell that took over my home before friends came over. It made me very popular ... and fat.
Winter is finally behind us and we're excited to finally say goodbye to hearty comfort foods and lighten up our menus with some fresh Spring Salads. So we're thrilled that National Salad Month takes place in May. Let's give our ovens a rest and celebrate with these sensational recipes.

Warmer weather is almost here and we couldn't be more ecstatic! This means grilling season, weekends at the cottage and poolside tanning. While we're excited for tasty fresh salads, smokey barbecue and ice cream, we can't help but reminisce on all the comfort foods that the colder months had to offer.
Thanksgiving may have come and gone, but we have a lot to be thankful for as Canadians right now. And what better way to embrace our feelings of National pride than by digging in to some delicious dishes that feature some of our country's favourite foods. From our love of bacon and sweet maple syrup, to gooey butter tarts and spicy caesars -- these truly Canadian recipes are a tasty way to celebrate our love for this great country we live in.
Yup! That just happened! Ol, take a deep breath. Since we are so close to Friday, we thought we would give you another reason to look forward this weekend's campfire cookout. This is a side dish that Ron Swanson would approve of. And yes, these bacon-wrapped onion rings are every bit as delicious as they look!

They put processed meat into Group 1 -- "exposures known to be carcinogenic to humans." But categorization caused misunderstandings. The report simply put processed meat in the same category (Group 1) as cigarette smoking, but did not claim it was as dangerous as smoking.

I really detest the saying "everything in moderation" because my moderation is different from yours, and neither of us knows what the outcomes will be of our choices. We don't eat nutrients, we eat foods and for many different reasons.

When you read that processed meat has "Grade 1" status, just like cigarette smoking, arsenic, or asbestos, it just means that the WHO is confident in the relationship between processed meat and cancer - NOT that processed meat is as likely to cause cancer as cigarette smoking is.

If you follow my 80 twenty rule and eat healthy foods such as vegetables, beans and lentils, fruit, nuts and seeds, fish and lean poultry 80% of the time, you can have some of the less healthy options 20% of the time. Whether it's sugar or bacon, no diet is 100% perfect.

They determined red meat is probably cancer-causing, too.

A pink snout touches my hand gently. I peek in the truck to see the pig's face and she's crying. "I love you and I am sorry," I whisper through tears. "It's going to be OK." But we both know it's not....

The war against gluten, the problem with bacon, teens and social media, a sad kid at the zoo and apple season all caught my attention this week.
Now that reality is the new fiction/entertainment, I find myself doubting what's true or false. Is everyone on Facebook really that perfect? Are we raising a generation of wimps? Can homegrown videos reach nine million people organically? Is bacon a food or an industry? And for the love of God, will the real James Franco please stand up.

It's been a while since I wrote my blog and it's good to be back. 2013 is going to be a great year. I can feel it. It's a mom thing -- I just know. It's tough to select just five things to highlight this week but here's what I have: baconnaise, blogging kids, an iPhone contract, Google glasses and smiles.
Caused by the sharp incline of the hog's feed prices, many farmers in the Midwest are finding it unprofitable to continue raising pigs for meat purposes. In response to this bacon shortage doomsday, we decided to put together some of our favourite pork-inspired dishes and creations to pay homage to this loveable ingredient.
The alleged pork "fiasco" that broke recently about a bacon shortage was not for want of real news: there is a serious conversation to be had. Not just about the perfect storm brewing in the rise of corn, wheat and fuel prices that's poised to increase food costs for the consumer. But also, what's really behind all of this, and where we're headed.
It's amazing we grow into healthy adults at all when you consider the mistakes we make raising our kids. Like feeding them rice cereal at six months, for example. That's no longer allowed, according to the latest in parenting news that came from a statement released by Health Canada last week.
I like to savour the last few weeks of summer. It's one of my favourite times of year -- especially the food! That's top on my roundup this week, along with some bad reality TV shows, thought on the Olympics and getting ready for back to school!
Even with the Olympics on 24/7 (admittedly a huge distraction for me) there was a lot that caught my attention this week. Let's talk about the Olympic uniforms, Twitter and freedom of speech, and ways that you can eat like an athlete!
Despite the slow pace that summer brings, there is still a lot of news, entertainment and interesting tidbits to read about. From illegal chocolate eggs to water bottle wallets and internet addictions, here are the things that caught my attention this week.
Radio is not dead, it's alive, and in Toronto it's kicking. Toronto is the largest radio market in Canada. There are over 20 radio stations covering a population of six million-plus. The competition i...
