Be my Valentine with Applegate & share my #birthdaybacon! (+Giveaway)

Disclaimer: I received complimentary bacon from Applegate Farms to celebrate my birthday. All opinions are my own.


Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

I really love BACON,

So I’m giving some to YOU!!!

Yes, that’s right. It’s the moment you all have been waiting for…..

Be my VALENTINE and share in my #BirthdayBacon bonanza!

I love Applegate Farms bacon. Because I am a bacon connoisseur.  And there’s is the good stuff. Nitrate-free. Hormone-free. I like to think of it coming from happy pigs. And it tastes so gosh darn good.

And I’m lucky because my love of bacon is known far and wide.

And this year, I got to celebrate early with a box of bacon from Applegate! Thank you Applegate!

This was a box of utter joy:


I really enjoyed trying their new Good Morning Bacon–which is a slightly leaner cut of bacon (from the pork shoulder as opposed to the belly) and experimenting with bacon in new ways and recipes.  Can anyone say bacon pancakes later this week? (Trust me, they’re happening!)

Check out how yummy it looks:


And again here, just because you can never look at too much bacon! 🙂


Thank you Applegate!

And Applegate wants to share my love of bacon with one of you! You can be my bacon-tine and enjoy your own #bithdaybacon, too! WOOHOO!

Enter below via Rafflecopter. One lucky winner will get to try the new Good Morning Bacon from Applegate–shipped directly to you! How do you like that bacon? MMMM. Bacon.

    Lately, I’ve been hooked on the Elvis…Grilled peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich! I also like it on turkey sandwiches made with my homemade soft pretzels.

    My favorite way to eat bacon is on a burger, but like most people, I can eat it any way you serve it.

    It may sound strange, but my favorite way to have bacon is on the side with rice pudding.

  12. Kristen M February 17, 2015 3:05 pm  Reply

    I like bacon any way, shape, or form. Even the comment above sounds amazing (with rice pudding!). I equally love eggs, so I’m going to say bacon and eggs of course.

    I will take bacon anyway I can get it! Love it on a burger though to add a little something!

    I absolutely love BLTs when the garden is giving us great tomatoes. Our perfect recipe is to combine both Black Krim and Mr Stripey tomatoes in one sandwich. YUM.

    I like to eat it by itself the best, but it is also good with pancakes dipped in syrup. 🙂
