Just Call Me “Gaming Grandma”

Gaming…and I mean playing video or console games…is something I never intended to get involved with. I had watched my kids grow up with gaming and at times become pretty obsessed with it.

Last night on the food network channel, the show America’s Best Cook featured desserts that had to include bacon as an ingredient. The process of taking a cheap meat staple such as pork and curing it by turning it into bacon has been around for hundreds of years. But now, entire cooking competitions worldwide are focused on bacon, challenging competitors to take it to a whole new level with bacon cupcakes and bacon sriracha lollipops. In a recent interview, Food & Wine editor Dana Cowin told TIME. “There’s nothing about bacon itself, it’s what people are doing to bacon.” While you might think this section of Our Five Senses is about the taste of this delectable salty meat, it is...
