State of My Bacon…

A few weeks ago, Jessa Crispin of Bookslut fame contacted me about her latest venture: Saucy. Saucy will be an online magazine that focuses solely on food and will have a wide range of columns covering topics like food essays, cookbook reviews, chef interviews, drinks, etc.

Jessa asked if I would like to be a regular contributor. I had just written a post about how I was accepting the Dinner Party a Month challenge, so I decided that that would be the perfect theme. My column will be called “The Hostess Project”.

My first Saucy dinner party is tomorrow and I’m a little nervous because of the extra pressure. I’m hoping for no catastrophic failures, even though it would probably make my article more interesting.

Anyways, more to come… www.saucymag.com will launch on March 7th, so add that to you foodie calendars!

On a separate note, I have been struggling with content organization for my site. When I started blogging I never dreamed I would write so much—I’ve been averaging a post a day lately. So I’m trying to make things easier to find (mostly for me, but also for you). Here are the recent updates:

  • I wanted to make it easier to see specific restaurant information, so I have added a Restaurant Review section.
  • All recipes on the site (and more) can be found on my recipe site.
  • A new bacon side bar has been added for just bacon-related things. If I’m missing anything major, please leave me the URL in the comments. Thanks!

    Cool excellen.t
    I am about to write for an online thing regularly too.
    No money and extra responsibilities. Can anyone remind me why we do this again…?

    Hi Sam,
    That’s great! Which one? Can you say yet? Can’t wait to read it…

    P.S. I completely failed your food test. It was hard!

    “long time listner, first time caller”… have you seen the latest Saveur with the special bacon article? Peanut butter bacon truffles and bacon tempura? It made me think of you!

    take care

    I did see that issue of Saveur! I almost died when I opened it up to that gorgeous plate of sizzling bacon. I’m definitely going to try making the bacon tempura and the Stilton and bacon cheesecake looks delicious as well…

    P.S. Your roasted chicken sounds fabulous!
