@jake t buds wins finally!  Congrats and thanks chefbuba for the bacon challenge, I've been salivating over bacon this whole month!
It will be interesting for sure but I doubt it will get crispy but I've never done it. Waffle batter maybe? It will give a whole new meaning to chicken n waffles haha. Now I'm getting ideas - what about chicken dipped in cornbread mix! Like a corn dog. Yum.

This is the closest I'm going to get to cooking with bacon this month. This is TJ's applewood smoked bacon accompanied by my soft scramble.
'Tis this season for artichokes and I've always felt a little guilty about not liking this vegetable much.  I may not have had the right experiences with this vegetable and I admit I have never cooked it.  I grew up eating raw artichokes, it was our snack when they were in season.  We'd sit and pull off each leaf one by one.  The bottom part of each leaf has a small white bit that is edible and we would chew on the leaves.  When we peeled away all the leaves my mother...
