Chocolate, beer & donuts: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. I don't mean to be a wimp, but it's freezing outside. Anyone have a good tip for keeping these fierce winds from seeping through 12 layers of clothing I've piled on? Plenty of items to ponder and enjoy in today's blog roundup. Feeling ambitious? The Slow Cook demonstrates how you can make your own bacon. Feeling adventurous? How about some chocolate and beer-filled donuts courtesy of Endless Simmer?

Looks like there are plenty of fish in the sea. Around the Mall reports that a Smithsonian scientist has discovered seven more species of fish.

The 42 has a great black and white photo of a Metro escalator. Honest. It’s cool. (And bonus: The escalator appears to be working.)

Going upscale: the Georgetown Metropolitan remembers when the Restoration Hardware was a … Roy Rogers. Here’s proof.

An intriguing post from Endless Simmer. Two great tastes in one place: chocolate and beer-filled donuts.

A challenge from The Slow Cook for the truly ambitious – making your own bacon, part one.

A belated happy three-year-blogiversary to Greater Greater Washington.

That's it for now. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the afternoon. Suggestions, comments, thoughts on must-read blogs in the D.C. area? Post below or send me an e-mail at
