One of the challenges of being a bacon fanatic is filling the gaps between meals with our beloved meat. But thanks to Yankee Candles, there’s finally a solution to this problem. Light up the “Mmm, Bacon!” candle and surround yourself with that smoky scent all day and night. “But I can’t light a candle in my car,” you ask? Or “what about when I’m at the office?” Then carry the “Mmm, Bacon” air freshener with you at all times and spread the love, no matter where you are.
The bacon flight at Cheeky’s in Palm Springs featuring bacon by Nodine’s and Beeler’s. The flavors were applewood smoked, apple cinnamon, black pepper, Thai sweet chile, and jalapeno. It was all delicious but the Thai sweet chile was my favorite.
I recently recorded an interview with the Mystery Meet Podcast hosted by Seth Resler to talk about the dining scene in Phoenix. In addition to talking about all the great new restaurants that have opened in Central Phoenix in the past several years, we also discussed the trend of chefs working more closely with local farmers and food producers to build and support our local food economy. Not surprisingly, bacon was also a consistent theme throughout the interview and one of many reasons why I recommend Beckett’s Table as a not-to-miss restaurant in Phoenix. Click here to listen!
I spent the last couple days filming a mini-documentary about bacon at locations around Phoenix. As part of the story, we sampled Chocolate Dipped Bacon S’mores from Beckett’s Table. Such a tough assignment…

For those times when you need to rinse the taste of bacon from your mouth…with bacon.
