Web Coolness: Father’s Day and bacon, chalkboard babies, and Sesame Street tackles a tough subject

Here are some things we’ve been reading around the web this week. Hope you like them too. Take one cute baby and some basic supplies, and you’ve got the  most adorably inventive photographs of babies against chalkboards.  This Father’s Day, say “I love you” with bacon. Yum. Taking on one of the most difficult subjects, Sesame Street tackles incarceration. Our editor’s Liz piece on the Huffinton Post, There Is Only Now, really has parents thinking. Support Climb Out of the Darkness on June 21st to help raise awareness for postpartum depression and other anxiety disorders. (via Boston Mamas) Breastfeeding Wouldn’t Matter to Me...

6 bacon-tastic recipes for Father’s Day, from breakfast to dinner to cocktails

Father’s Day is this Sunday, so we’re talking bacon. I know: so predictable, so genderist, and yet…so right. Take one look at these six recipes using bacon and try telling me otherwise. (Coffee Bacon Waffle Sandwich? C’mon, daddy!) Let me say that again: Coffee Bacon Waffle Sandwich (above). This thing of beauty from Bakeaholic Mama, and adapted from a Coffee Bacon Sandwich by one of our favorites, Joy the Baker, works for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Because, lets face it, candied coffee bacon is an all-the-time food. If you’re looking for a non-traditional Father’s Day breakfast idea, these Beer and Bacon...

You had me at Bacon Peanut Brittle.

It seems that our society might be seeking out a few too many reasons to celebrate each and every day of the year (Penguin Awareness day anyone?). That said, I have found room for some elite exceptions. With today being National Peanut Brittle Day. In this house, brittle is king. My husband is quite the connoisseur and in our foodie expeditions in and around our eclectic island city we are happy to share that we have struck pure gold. Seeing as how it only comes once a year, I think today is a perfectly good excuse to buy some. Straight...

Man Candles: the perfect gift for the bacon fiend in your life

Sure, we love fancy candles as much as the next mom trying to cover up the smell of a yogurt pop hidden under the couch for two weeks. But men need candles, too, and we think they’re really going to love this collection of masculine scents for discriminating fans of pizza and new baseball mitts. Plus, they help feed the hungry. And did we mention they’re the brainchild of a teenager? Hart Main was 13 when he came up with the idea for Man Cans while observing his sister’s school fundraiser selling more traditionally feminine scented candles. But instead...

Bring prosciutto to your next baby shower

Since bacon is the new black, it’s only logical that Wooster Street Meats, whose meat shirts we fell in love with last year, is now making prosciutto onesies for babies. There’s one in kids’ sizes too. Even if your babies are too young to be eating the stuff themselves, I love the idea of pairing it with the grown-up size prosciutto tee for an adorable daddy-son/daughter gift for your favorite carnivore. Especially since the shirts come in adorable deli packaging wrapped up with that red and white deli string.. Prefer sweets to meats? Check out the new canolli shirt...

Celebrate National Bacon Day with…lollipops?

Bacon is the new black, it would seem, and everywhere I look (least of all our own fridge) there is someone proudly proclaiming his or her love for the stuff. So I wasn’t entirely surprised to have found a number of bacon-oriented gourmet items at the Fancy Foods Show this year, and at the top of my list were the Man Bait Maple Bacon Lollipops from CMP fave Das Foods. Before you say ew, just remember how much kids love dipping their bacon in maple syrup with their pancakes. The combo totally works in that salty-sweet, chocolate-pretzel sort of...
