I want to invest in a good bacon fat jar. But, before I do, I want to be sure that if I use it on a regular basis to add fat to my cooking, I won't end up with adverse health effects. Also, how long does bacon fat last before I should discard it... (more)
Do you feel it is our responsibility to confront the conventional wisdom that we so often come across in articles like this one on --gasp-- Huffington Post, that advise us to steer clear of bacon and saturated fats, or suffer the... (more)
Could you consume too much bacon fat? Every morning, I'll make anywhere from 3-4 slices of bacon, and maybe a couple of eggs cooked in the bacon fat. After I'm done cooking those, I'll use the remaining bacon fat to cook some veggies in. Is that... (more)
Is there ever to much bacon! I know it is a sin, not used all that bacon fat. I will not tell, if you do not! What kind bacon, do you buy?
Obviously I love bacon, but having some logistical problems with cooking it. I cook a batch of about 6-8 strips in the oven once a week. This produces more leftover fat than I can possibly use in cooking vegs, etc. So I have pots of the... (more)

I don't know about you guys, but most of the recipes I find and use are online and I'm realizing I need a system to keep track of all these! Often times I'll take my laptop into the kitchen and use the recipe straight off there, but I'm thinking I... (more)

I am new to the paleo/primal/dino-chow/... lifestyle diets. I've been hearing about and own and use many of the fats and oils recommended by paleo chefs. The problem is that I don't know how often to use the coconut oil, the grass-fed butter, the... (more)
You alway find out something new when you do actual research. I always thought bacon grease, butter, and coconut oil were ideal for frying. The reason? Well, don't they all have rather high smoke points? And isn't that because they are... (more)
