blogiversary week + giveaway to big bite bacon fest

This week marks This Tasty Life’s 7th Blogiversary and I can hardly believe I’ve been blogging for that long! In honor of the blogiversary, I’ll be holding five different giveaways this week. Please stay tuned each day for a new giveaway!

I’m kicking off the week with a giveaway that involves the joy of BACON.

My love of bacon is pretty strong, considering the fact that recently I went on a Bacon Crawl and managed to not OD on bacon or get sick of that holiest of pork products. In fact, I just kind of want to add bacon to more things.


This weekend I added bacon to these Italian Sausages. But I also want to try bacon added to other things… like donuts. And desserts. And to salads… and really, just about anything.

More than that, I want to try other people’s creations – and this year at the San Diego County Fair I’ll be able to do just that by attending the Big Bite Bacon Fest on June 16th!

The Big Bite Bacon Fest will be bringing together the best chefs and competitive cooks to bring you a crazy amount of bacon goodness, ranging from appetizers and desserts and all points in between. Samples of craft beers will also be on hand to help wash down all of the bacon deliciousness (along with bacon inspired cocktails for an additional fee).


I’ve got two general admission tickets available to giveaway to one lucky winner! Big Bite Bacon Fest tickets also include admission to the San Diego County Fair.

Bacon + the fair = a really delicious day in my book.

Want to win a pair of tickets to the Big Bite Bacon Fest on June 16th? All you have to do is tell me your favorite bacon related food: is it maple bacon donuts, bacon wrapped scallops, macaroni and cheese with bacon or maybe chocolate covered bacon? Let me know in the comments below!

For additional entries, you may do any and all of the following activities. Please leave a separate comment for each entry.

  1. I guess bacon-wrapped bacon would be kind of cheating, huh? Bacon-wrapped dates are probably the one thing I could never pass up. Although, bacon-wrapped water chestnuts are a close second.

    One of my co-workers (not a vegetarian) doesn’t like bacon, which completely baffles me.

  2. My family (Mom’s side) makes a non-creamy bacon coleslaw that I could downright eat myself sick on!

  3. Happy Blogaversary to you!!!! You blog is in 2nd grade now!

    As for bacon, i love baking it in the oven slathered with maple syrup and a sprinkling of freshly cracked black pepper.

    Eat with ANYTHING, ha ha!

  4. Mmmmm asparagus wrapped in bacon. Enough said…unless you mention bacon dipped in milk chocolate.

  5. There’s just too many favorites out there! Let’s stick with something simple and classic. Bacon wrapped hotdogs!
