I was asked by Nick from Macheesmo to write one of the 55 chapters for the 55 knives e-book.  I was honored to be asked to write about bacon.  As you guys know, bacon is dear to my heart.  So after a few ideas, I wrote a chapter about baking maple brown sugar bacon.  Then using the baked maple brown sugar bacon, I made the Ultimate BLT.  It is as amazing as it sounds.  Here is a little taste of the book cover.

I know you might have a few questions about the book.

What’s 55 Knives?


In short, the almost 200 page book is a compilation of stories, recipes and tips from 55 food bloggers from around the Internet! Each blogger gets a chapter and in that chapter they give a recipe (or a few) and a story to accompany the recipe(s). The idea being that if we all write a few pages then those pages will all be really exceptional. Also, because there are so many different perspectives, the recipes are varied and much more unique than if just one person were to write the entire thing.

What the heck is an ebook?

Some of you might be familiar with the concept of an ebook, but I’m sure a lot of you have never heard of it. Basically, it’s a downloadable book that you can store on your computer and view at your leisure. Once you buy it, the copy is yours. You can print it out and generally use it like you would any normal book. Another cool feature is that an e-book is interactive with hyperlinks like a website. You can click on a chapter to go there, or you can click on a link and visit the author’s website.

What is included in the Book?

  • The full 174 page ebook featuring delicious recipes, great stories, cooking tips, and mouth-watering photos.
  • A professionally formatted PDF that’s searchable and has multiple, clickable indexes for easy navigating.
  • A “blogger index” page so you can quickly connect and communicate with any of the authors in the book.
  • A no-questions-asked 30 day warranty. If you decide the book isn’t for you, get a refund for any reason.
  • Money saving offers from Grill Charms ($5 value), Secret Stash Seas Salts ($5 value) and OpenSky (%10 off select products). Only valid in US. Secret Stash offer also valid in Canada.
