Rinse Bacon in Water Before Cooking to Reduce Shrinkage by 50 Percent

This tip has been circling around the interwebs for a while. Fran at the Franalan blog put it to the test and confirmed her bacon did not shrink. Several people at Thrify Fun, BabyCenter, and Art of Manliness report the same.

Also, cooking bacon in the oven definitely is a superior method, but if you want to cook it in a skillet, Cooking Light suggests you could also prevent some shrinkage by starting with a cold pan and flipping often.

Okay, this is new. At least that’s how I decided to apologize why I didn’t notice this service by IM-Creator earlier. Remember IM-Creator? The homepage builder equipped with templates made by freelance designers itself targets freelance designers and not the DIY thirteen year old son of the CEO’s golf mate. It was this same homepage builder that secretly (well almost…) introduced a new offering named IM FREE. IM FREE hosts curated collections with free, also commercially usable photos. And it contains quite a few gems…
