Millionaires, Billionaires and Bacon

I noticed an interesting phenomenon with our website traffic last week. Three out of five trending recipes contained the word “million” or “billion.”

Million Dollar Bacon and Billionaire Bacon are both variations of a sweet-spicy glazed, oven baked bacon that everyone finds irresistible.

Neiman Marcus Million Dollar Dip is an updated vintage recipe with an unusual ingredient that takes the bacon-based dip over the top!

These opulent bacon recipes will make you feel like a rich movie star, and they’re also perfect for Father’s Day!

What Happened When I Asked A.I. to Describe Bacon

As you’ve probably heard, Artificial Intelligence is here whether we like it or not. So I tried an experiment recently, when I was building some new “Wurdle” puzzles for our Members Only library.

Here’s what happened when I asked A.I. Search for some 5-letter words describing bacon:

“Simply stale?” Really?

Have you tried the A.I. tools yet? What has your experience been? I’d love to hear your comments!

How Fast Can You Complete a 35-piece Bacon Puzzle?

Puzzle pieces for an online puzzle showing bacon deviled eggs.

The 35 piece bacon puzzle above was created from our popular Bacon Deviled Eggs recipe. Can you beat the reigning champion’s completion time of 1 minute, 1 second?

Two hints: The pieces are all facing the proper way, so you don’t need to worry about turning them. If you zoom out, you’ll have more room to sort the edge pieces and build the puzzle.
