A Doylestown man who was awaiting sentencing for child pornography continued to view and share explicit images online until he was rearrested last week, court documents show. Edward V. Bacon, 21, of Doylestown, was one of eight men charged in a statewide sweep targeting online child predators by the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office. Two weeks after he pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in Bucks County Court, state prosecutors found videos of children uploaded to an online file-sharing site and tracked them to Bacon's computer, according to the criminal complaint.

There are always eggs in my fridge. If you have bacon left over from the weekend, and some nice greens, you can throw together this light, elegant dinner in no time. "As with many classic French salads, there are a few hotly disputed versions in circulation," writes cookbook author Trish Deseine, describing her recipe for Frisee au Lardons (Bacon and Poached Egg Salad). But in her mind, "eggs and croutons don't seem to cohabit well, and I always prefer mopping up the egg yolk with a fluffy baguette to chasing it around with fried cubes.

The word picnic conjures up checkered tablecloths and wicker baskets packed perfectly for a warm day. However, at Picnic, 3131 Walnut St., it doesn't matter what the temperature is for hungry folks to partake in the offerings. Chef/owner Anne-Marie Lasher orders much of her food straight from the farm. This makes items like Picnic's Breakfast Sandwich extra special. It's made from organic Lancaster County eggs and cheese (both sold retail at Picnic) and bacon (an option left out for non-meat eaters)

What is it about the holidays that makes us long for the past? For the times when cards came through traditional mail. Presents were bought at a store. Turkey was never tofu. And spam . . . well, it was just a Monty Python routine: Man in cafe: "Well, what've you got?" Waitress: "Well, there's egg and bacon; egg, sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg, bacon and spam; egg, bacon, sausage and spam; spam, bacon, sausage and spam. . . . " Back then the joke was on a canned meat product.

Chad Beene likes peanut butter on everything, says his wife, Kellyann. When the couple opened the Urban Saloon in Fairmount recently, there was no question they'd serve a burger topped with peanut butter and bacon. Stop making that face! People put mayo on their burgers, right? Peanut butter-and-bacon has that fat-fat, salt-salt thing, with the added smokiness of the bacon and earthy nuttiness of the peanut butter. It's served on Texas toast, with a lettuce leaf. (Given the fat content, it should come with a nitro tab.)

LAST WEEK, the United Nations issued a report chronicling North Korea's massive human-rights violations under the rule of Kim Jong-un. It is estimated that there are up to 200,000 political prisoners. The report alleged that many have been executed, tortured and starved. Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has visited North Korea and its idiot leader many times, which has inspired a 20th Century Fox film to be titled "Diplomats. " And get this: It's going to be a comedy. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will be directed by Tim Story, whose past projects include "Ride Along," "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" and "Barbershop.

Here is an excerpt from the blog "My Daughter's Kitchen. " A few years working in New England gave me a taste of some of the best "chowda" I had ever eaten, both at little corner restaurants, seafood shacks on the Cape, and of course, at the famed Legal Sea Foods in Boston. Everyone had their own version, but the best were smooth and rich soups, stocked with clams, potatoes, a little onion, and a healthy splash of cream. Back in the Philadelphia area, I found it hard to find the same soup, as most restaurant renditions were dense and gloppy, thickened with flour and resonating with a strong flavor of bacon.

Food lineup at the ballpark They say 2014 will be a rebuilding year for the Phillies. Same for Aramark, which handles the food at Citizens Bank Park. For its 11th season at the ballpark, Aramark rebuilt many kitchens. The new equipment will allow for new food options and perhaps add speed. At least part of the new lineup will be served Thursday. And it's smokin'. Kevin Tedesco, Aramark's general manager, and Jeremy Campbell, its director of concessions, seem pumped about the pastrami that's brined and smoked in-house, as well as the house-braised and -smoked brisket.

Dear Polly: Please let me know what the ingredient is that's added to sugar to make powdered sugar? - Alice You can easily make your own powdered sugar at home by whirling regular white sugar in a blender or food processor (the food processor works best) until it is fine and powdery. It becomes even more like the commercial powdered sugar when you add 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch to each cup of granulated sugar before processing it. Store the homemade powdered sugar in an airtight covered container.
