IN THIS ECONOMY, we dont have fancy late night bacon money in this household. so I sliced a hot dog into approximate bacon-sized slivers.I lay the hot dog slivers out on a sheet of tin foil and I swear on my life NONE of the slivers overlapped!! I was real careful. started it & little bolts of lightning started shooting out inside of the box from the top!!! there were loud sizzling-pop-bang noises!? Idk, I grabbed my box of wine and got out of there fast..what do I do now?!?!?!

If I had a sister who was unmarried, I would suggest she marry this recipe. Not only is it solid and dependable, it also has an air of mystery about it that is very sexy. I believe this recipe would be a good provider but also still have a bit of secretive intrigue and magic that would keep my sister guessing. This would keep the marriage from growing stale and provide excitement for years to come. None of this would be possible with daytime bacon for obvoius reasons, so for this, I thank you. You've made my sister a very happy woman.

I love to give late night bacon to my friends that I have over. I try not to overcook it but it does get wrapped very tightly. I prefer not paper. When I am done, I usually put the last of the bacon away and fall asleep. I try to save the last of the bacon for either the morning or the shower.

STOP! For those confused by the "Late Night" timeframe, please consult your local condo by-laws. Typical guidelines call for neighborly silence between 10pm and 8am, which is a good rule of thumb for this recipe. Anything outside this timeframe would constitute "Day Time" bacon and would require a new recipe formula.

I was really hoping to combine this scrumptious recipe with some toast, but I can't find the recipe anywhere on the Food Network. Rachel, please help me...if you know how.

An unabashedly modern twist on a seemingly-unimprovable classic! I like to substitute a country-themed tea towel for the paper on special occasions. I've found it even works at 10:00 am, in case you're considering adding "Late Night Bacon" to your next book club brunch menu. When I unwrap and reveal sur la table, everyone asks "How do you do it???" Only Rachel and I know for sure ;-

This is definitely my boyfriend's favorite late night snack at my house! Wait, except I have no boyfriend, it's just me and my three legged dog. Oh, and there's no house, just a crappy studio apartment by the tracks. And then there's the fact I can't afford bacon, just Purina Beggin© Strips. But you know I OHHH GAWD WHHYYYYY DID I QUIT COURT REPORTING SCHOOL

Whoa- 2 paper towels on top AND bottom? Easy there, Rach, I'm not a Rockerfeller.

I made this fabulously simple recipe even simpler-I eliminated both the bacon and the paper towels! I turned on my microwave for 6-13 minutes and stared at it. Since it was late at night, and I was therefore drunk, it was highly entertaining. Five stars!

Do you have any recipes for cereal? The kind in a box? I really like cereal, but it seems tricky- milk first? cereal? big spoon? little spoon?

We started the intermediate level today. This next group of dogs is much more advanced then Minou but she did really well today.
Now we are off leash, doing all the obstacles at once - and starting to learn the teeter totter, SCARY!
So much fun for me and Minou really seems to like it too....

Funeral for B was today. There was a nice little group of us costume folk there. It felt good to sit and be with friends - all the emailing and text messaging over the past week was not as comforting as a good hug from someone who was feeling her loss as deeply as you.
The eulogy was short but full of memories for all of us.
She mentioned B's starbucks drink a 3/4 cup grande americano, B's favourite word 'ponder' (we spent at least a day discussing the ways ponder could be used in a sentence in Jan 2009), her love of sewing and fixing things for people (I was wearing a bracelet she fixed for me), and her love for her kids.
In between the tears there was giggles from us as we knew exactly what the speaker was talking about.

After the funeral a small group of us went for coffee - appropriate for B's memory. We remembered other things, B stealing a hotel coffee maker to make coffee at work at a particularly bad location, B's movie crush being Rhys Ifans (she always brought up the underwear scene in Nottinghill when someone expressed that they didn't know who he was), her love for Thomas Haus chocolates, her love for knitting, her love of bad jokes, losing her keys and her wallet several times (once apparently she accidentally put them in a box she was mailing home to herself from banff), accusing her of faking a sickness to get out of work (she never missed work no matter how sick)

I really can't believe she is gone. The way our business goes you don't see someone for 6 months - you don't talk on the phone or email during that time and then suddenly you spend 12 hours a day with them for the next year and call them when you are apart for 1 hour or on a 15 minute break. I kind of feel like this is just one of those in between times. Like next week I'll be on a new show and she will be there with her big cup of coffee smiling from ear to ear.....

B I miss you. I'm sorry I wasn't always 100% supportive. I have many regrets about our friendship. It's too late to change what happened now but I hope I have learned from them.
