New Breakfast Side Dish: BAKON VODKA

26 05 2009


Bacon. It’s the All-American breakfast side dish. I personally have several packs on hand for any unexpected bacon emergencies. In fact, I love bacon so much that I keep a framed picture of bacon on my desk (it’s actually a really artistic shot I pulled from New York Magazine).

You can imagine my excitement when I learned of the new BAKON VODKA. Yes, bacon vodka. Though I haven’t tried it yet, I’m very intrigued. According to the company’s website, “Bakon Vodka is superior quality potato vodka with a savory bacon flavor. It’s clean, crisp, and delicious. This is the only vodka you’ll ever want to use to make a Bloody Mary, and it’s a complementary element of both sweet and savory drinks.”

If you’re not a fan of Bloody Mary drinks, there are plenty of other recipes on the site that are sure to quench your thirst.

If you’re not a drinker, but are also a fan of bacon like me, check out these additional bacon-inspired recipes from the Queen of Southern Cuisine, Ms. Paula Deen.

Grooming: Memorial Day Fun in the Sun Skin Protection

18 05 2009

Memorial Day is just a week away, but before you pack up and head to the beach for a long weekend in the sun, it’s time to stock up on your sun protection arsenal.  And while there are a myriad of options at your local drugstore, the following are some of my favorites. 

Every Man Jack
Every Man Jack, the line that has been bringing affordable grooming to the masses at Target stores nationwide, has just launched their new SPF collection, which includes a Face Lotion SPF 15, Body Lotion SPF 30 and a dual-pack Lip Balm SPF 15.  The line is enriched with aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate while a combo of octinoxate, octisalate and oxybenzone provide broad spectrum protection from aging UVA and burning UVB rays. 
Retail Price: $5.00 each
Available at Target and

Mercola Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 implements a secret recipe from the people of Acapulco.  The all-natural formula is a great alternative to common chemical-laden sunscreens. Blended with rich oils, soothing compounds and antioxidant-rich green tea, this sunscreen nourishes and moisturizes skin, protecting it from sunburn, while reducing sun damage. 
Retail Price: $18.97
Available at

Jock Block™, part of the M.V.P Advanced Skincare Collection, is a gentle, non-greasy moisturizing formula that combines the newest nano and bio-technologies.  If that sounds too advanced, all you really need to know is that it provides full spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays while blocking over 85 percent of all forms of UV rays.  My favorite part is that this sunblock doesn’t clog pores, so you won’t have to worry about skin breakouts, or sunburns for that matter, when you return to the office
