Music and Bacon

There are two things that make my house very very happy.

Music and Bacon.

I have found two sites that have made this waaaay easier for me.

First, I love music.  It helps my brain function.  I am constantly looking for fun happy music.  I don't listen to slow music very often because I want to be in an upbeat happy go-go-go state.  I was reading in Real Simple Magazine the other day and they suggested THIS site.  It's called  I'm hooked.

All you have to do is go to the site and pick your mood and they bring up a play list for you.  You can either leave your computer on and it will play through it or you can skip around and check it out.  I've got a new list of fun stuff that I'm ready to buy.  It's really easy and it's right on with your moods.

The other miracle I stumbled on is all about bacon.  The mister loves bacon in a huge way and I hate cooking it for him.  The grease splatters, the mess, the time-- yuck.  Now I love bacon as much as the next person, but it's not worth the hassle to me.  I found an amazing way to cook it restaurant crispy in a few minutes WITHOUT A MESS!  I kid you not!  I've been cooking bacon like a fiend the last few weeks because it's so easy.  The mister is in heaven.

Check out THIS link.

Cool! I can't wait to check out that music site! I just learned that bacon trick a few months ago. Never again in the pan! No more grease burns for me! Long live bacon and music!

I love the bacon-in-the-oven trick too! To make it even better try brushing it with a little brown sugar before you pop it in -- it is to die for good!!

I have been doing bacon in the oven for a long time, but thank you for the brown sugar idea. I really like it for large amounts. You can feed so many people warm bacon at once and enjoy breakfast together.

Great for clean up. Just wait until the bacon grease seatles a little and throw the whole mess away.

I bet Timmy is LOVING life now! He can put bacon on anything whenever he wants!

I. Love. Bacon. i ate a whole pound of it once when i was pregnant. Only to throw it all up a little while later. What? It tastes good both ways, up and down.

YAY for bacon and fabulous music!

I've tried bacon that way but it took about 20 minutes to get it crisp enough... so we've resorted to the waffle iron method as recommended by Food Network's Alton Brown of Good Eats... it keeps it nice and flat and keeps it out of the grease too! and it's great for a hot day when you don't want to crank up the oven!
