You Could Win a Signed Copy of My Newest Book, “101 Things To Do With Bacon”

101 Things To Do With Bacon at Happy Simple Living

As many of you know, when I’m not blogging about happy simple living I’m a full-time writer. This year my fifth book was published, a cookbook about one of my favorite foods. 101 Things To Do With Bacon is already in its third printing, which isn’t surprising given how passionate many people are about crunchy, crispy bacon.

Happy Simple Living and the Book Lover's Holiday Giveaway HopHappy Simple Living is proud to be participating in the Book Lovers’ Holiday Giveaway Hop, sponsored by two terrific blogs — I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Kid Lit Frenzy. You could win your very own signed copy of my book simply by leaving a comment below about your favorite way to enjoy bacon — whether it’s a BLT, a bacon weave, bacon-wrapped jalapenos or peanut butter bacon cupcakes. Be sure to include your e-mail address on the form when you post your comment (it won’t show to anyone but me). The drawing is open to anyone with a shipping address in the U.S. and Canada. The giveaway will end at midnight MST on Tuesday, December 6, and I’ll announce the random winner on the 7th.

I’m happy to personalize the inscription if you want to give the book away as a holiday gift. Good luck!

Best always,

P.S. If you like bacon, check out the exclusive BENSA Bacon Lovers Society–like Mensa, but without the IQ test!–where you can also purchase copies of the cookbook for a reduced price.

  1. Love it! And I love the retro picture that’s on the cover, very cute! I adore bacon so it’s hard to choose but I made a beer and bacon mac ‘n cheese that was pretty darn tasty!

  2. I know this is really simple, but my favorite way to enjoy bacon is on a Sunday morning after I’ve been able to sleep in for the first time in weeks. I love making a big breakfast with eggs, homemade biscuits, and freshly pressed coffee. Bacon tops it off and makes it a perfect weekend morning!

  3. OH MAN! I just may buy that book if I don’t win it. I love bacon. Deeeeeefinitely the BLT. I ate several a week for around a month when we were getting tomatoes from our garden.

  7. Thank you for the excellent giveaway. All of my cookbooks were lost along with my home in the May tornado that devastated my hometown so I would love to win a cookbook. My favorite thing to do with bacon is a BLT or just crumbled up in scrambled eggs.

  8. I love bacon and I can’t believe I didn’t know about the existence of this book. Oh, wait, I’m not much of a cooker, that’s why.

    Favorite way to have bacon is to have it crispy and crunchy…in anything.

  10. Bacon is fabulous- real bacon from heritage pasture grazed happy porkers that is! We love a simple cheesy bechamel with bacon and eschallots stirred through over steamed potatoes from the garden over an omlette or even simple boiled noodles. so so good!
    love your blog!

  11. I put bacon into everything – even stir-fries – I’ll chop them up into little pieces and throw them in. What a great way to sneak a little meat in there when I don’t have any meat prepared or defrosted.

    I make my own ice cream as well, and am hoping to try my hand one day at making bacon ice cream … yum!

  12. Love the smell of bacon cooking and love to eat bacon.
    Bacon and eggs, waterchest nuts wrapped in bacon, spinach salad with bacon,green beans cooked with bacon, I could go on and on. I know you asked for a favorite way I like to eat bacon, I just couldn’t pick just one.
    Thank you for the chance to win

  14. I am enjoying these comments so much and I love everyone’s enthusiasm for bacon. On the menu today here at the urban homestead: BLTs and a Broncos game!

  15. I have have developed an allergy to pork, so I can only eat Turkey Bacon. I know it doesn’t get as crispy, but I love to make BLT wraps with it.

    I’ve got a friend that is a certifiable bacon-a-holic, so if I win, I would like the book inscribed to Susan.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to give her such an awesome gift.

  16. Well I’m entering this hoping to win a copy for my friend that loves bacon. It would be a great Christmas present for her. I don’t eat bacon but I know she loves it in all ways. I just bought her bacon jam for her toast not long ago and she loved it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  17. Mmmm… bacon is one of the secret ingredients to our near-famous Nuts & Bolts, a chex mix holiday tradition. On the night I make N&B’s, we eat BLT’s & pretzels for dinner. The idea is to make enough to share all season long, and not just among ourselves!!

    Your book looks great – thx for the Giveaway!!

  18. Wow! Never realized we bacon lovers were part of such an enthusiastic community! I love an egg salad sandwich on hefty whole grain bread with avocado slices and bacon – in fact I’m going to go have one right now 🙂

  19. Gee, this just reminded me I have bacon in the frig. Now you may think if I was a true baconholic I wouldn’t have forgotten it. My daughter is the baconholic and is always coming to me with recipes for “us” to try. Bacon Apple Pie and Chocolate Covered Bacon with Nuts comes to mind.

  20. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but a summertime camping FAVORITE of mine is bacon-wrapped jalapenos… stuffed with cream cheese AND chicken. Throw it over the fire (or at home, a grill), and it is oh, SO GOOD!

  21. I love mixing he salty and the sweet. Maple fudge bars and the maple bacon bars from Voodoo Donuts in Portland is delicious.
