In a Pickle

The phrase in a pickle means you’re in a mess or some kind of problem. However, this time of year, with gardens and farmers markets overflowing with incredible fruits and veggies, the only pickle we’re in is what to do with all that goodness. Why not make pickles? Here are a peck of pickle recipes from ReciFoto users.

Bacon Is Proof That God Loves Us and Wants Us To Be Happy


Search the internet for bacon quotes, and you’ll find things like this: “Is this too much bacon?…Said no one ever,” or “Bacon is the best, even the frying of bacon sounds like applause,” and “Bacon is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” It’s good on its own, it’s good crumbled up in anything, and I do mean anything, it’s just good. I’m more than a little suspicious of bottled bacon bits, but as a bacon analog for vegetarians, I’m willing to look the other way.

Here are a selection of recipes with bacon in the title that our users have added to ReciFoto.

Bacon Omelet (does anyone write with a fountain pen anymore?)

Bacon Biscuits

Bacon-Apple Muffins

Crab Meat and Bacon Balls

Crunchy Bacon Coleslaw

Corn with Bacon (think how much better this would be with fresh corn!)

Liver and Bacon (Bacon might make me into a liver eater)

Bacon Casserole

Bacon Covered Turkey – no recipe here, but talk about a happy Thanksgiving!

I know what I’ll be looking for at the farmers’ market today!

You Can’t Teach a Crab to Walk Straight

We’re spending this weekend at friends’ incredible house on Fire Island. So, I thought I would search ReciFoto for one of my beach favorites, clams. I was surprised to find that many of the clam recipes used canned minced clams. As a result, I called an audible and went searching for crab recipes instead! However I will give you my favorite way to prepare clams first. Soak your clams in a bowl of cold water for twenty minutes to an hour. This will help get the sand out of the clams. I’ve read, but have not tried, that if you put corn meal or black pepper in the water, the clams work a little harder to get the grit out. Once your done soaking your clams, put them on the grill for five to ten minutes until they open up. You can dip them in butter or sprinkle them with lemon juice, but personally, I like them plain. Even if you are on your suburban patio, it tastes like a day at the beach. And now, on to the crabs!
