Wednesday food links: Everything's better with bacon

Racked reports on a new birthday card that comes with a little single-use cupcake-flavored taste strip. One commenter was able to find this card and taste the strip, saying that they taste good. Birthdays are easy, but there are many other occasions to send cards. What kind of flavor would they come up with for something like "get well soon"?

This Buzzfeed photo should be enough to send medical professionals of all stripes into a frenzy. (Check out how humongous and ostentatious its display is compared to the little water tent at right!)

Also from Buzzfeed, a video of a cat struggling, for almost a minute, to get to the cake beneath its clear plastic dome.

Author Todd Kliman discusses locavore hypocrisy: with so many restaurants going for locavore cuisine, do their wine lists follow suit? If not, why not?

Wired's Geek Dad is embarking on an epic journey...an epic journey of bacon. So far, he has tried bacon candies, Torani bacon-flavored syrup, kosher bacon salt (think about that for a moment) and both a burger wrapped in bacon and a burger made entirely of bacon. He's pretty funny and rates each bacon product on ingredients, smell, appearance, taste and if it is worth the cost.

In the same vein as the Yelp users' field guide I linked to on Monday, Urlesque presents Annoying Cooks on the Web. It's not all negative, though. There is also a helpful guide to good recipe sites...then a guide about the bad people on the good sites. The Life-Changing Scone and The Depressed Housewife are my favorites.

It's nice outside, so Bon Appetit's Foodist recommends we bring back the art of the picnic. There's even a slideshow of picnic-worthy recipes.

Hey! Even MORE weird cookbooks?? This is looking quite familiar... (As a huge Harry Potter fan, I'm not pleased to see the Twilight cookbook. Oh well, Harry Potter has its own theme park now.)

From the New York Daily News: UK grocery store Tesco is now selling a lasagna sandwich. I had a few Tesco sandwiches while studying abroad in Northern Ireland—they were cheap during a time when the exchange rate was two pounds to a dollar (not anymore)—but lasagna sandwiches could be taking it one carbohydrate step too far.
