Oct 5 2010 Back in 2008, we dubbed bacon the trendiest ingredient of the year. Since then, it seems the culinary world has gone bananas for bacon. There's bacon ice cream, bacon-flavored mayonnaise, even bacon bookmarks! However, yesterday in an article entitled The Bacon Backlash, the Wall Street Journal declared that it's time everyone moved beyond bacon. While I have to agree that it's become a little too prevalent on restaurant menus, when it comes to home cooking, I still believe everything tastes better with bacon — from guacamole to salad dressing. How do you feel about bacon?
