"Memories of visiting my dad's parents' house are dominated by one thing -- the scent of bacon. My Grandma Aiken saved all of her bacon fat in a jar that sat on her countertop (lord only knows for how long -- and I'm not recommending you do the same). She used it to cook everything -- potatoes, roasts, you name it. But the most memorable dish she made? Pancakes fried up in bacon fat. The aroma and flavors of the sweet cakes fried to salty, crisp perfection are unforgettable."
