If we’re being completely honest, and if metabolism wasn’t an issue, we’d eat bacon for every meal. You can eat it on bread with vegetables. You can put it on burgers on and sandwiches. You can crumble it up for soup and salad. Or, you can eat it by itself because it’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner and fourth meal. Bacon is delicious. Author Jennifer L.S. Pearsall wrote a new book that elevates bacon from a simple meal accessory to the focal point of dishes for every possible course. In her words, “I can’t think of anything bacon doesn’t work with.” We’re inclined to agree. The Big Book of Bacon: Savory Flirtations, Daliances, and Indulgences with the Underbelly of the Pig will teach you how to work it into dessert, bread dough, pulled pork and a whole host of other dishes to really bring out that elusive fifth sense, “umami.” Did we mention it’s an entire book about bacon?

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
