Mini Mac and Cheese Pies and a Virtual Baby Shower I’m relatively new to the blogging world. New to who’s who in the blogging world, the traditions, the etiquette, and the community. At first, I was incredibly intimidated by the other bloggers out there-there’s so much talent, so much experience, and so much genuine love, and I was hoping I could keep up with it all. But, there have been a few bloggers who have welcomed me whole-heartedly into this part of the world, and Josie, from Pink Parsley, has always been one of them. I’ve grown to love Josie’s blog, seeing her fantastic rendition of many Southern classics, her classic and inviting photography, but, best of all, feeling like I know her when I have never met her in person. Josie has an incredible love for her family, and it shows in the posts she writes and shares about being a mother and celebrating the lives of her daughter, Caroline, and her husband. While we are not all there with you physically, Josie, know that we love you and cannot wait to meet the little man! Annie’s Eats

The Web’s Best Slider Recipes We never thought a culinary revolution would spawn from a White Castle (even though we think more food should come in Crave Cases), but sliders have become a bit of a trendy food over the last couple of years.

When we cook some up for a party/standard afternoon at home, we like to get a bit creative with the shrunken snack. Here are our favorite recipes for sliders: Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders We didn’t realize we could make such a mess with such a small food, but every smear on our face and drop of sauce on our denim was worth it.

Baked Wonton Tacos When I was a little kid, around every New Year’s, my mom and grandma would sit down and make Mandu {Korean version of potstickers or wontons} all day to make Teokguk {Korean version of wonton soup} and I’d just sit with them trying to help out. I remember trying to help out making my own Mandu, though not really successfully. Then my mom and grandma made their own mandu skins from scratch… And now… how grateful I am that I can get premade mandu skins so easily… although I think I should try and make my own skins sometime… It’s definitely on my to-do list. But until then, these premade wonton skins would do. I’ve been looking for ways to use these little yummies in different kinds of cooking. I’ve always used wonton skins for just wontons… Then I saw that you can use wonton skins for ravioli… So I thought there must be other ways to use the skins, too. When I saw that you can use wonton skins to make little tacos, I immediately experimented with the idea. Baked Wonton Tacos

Grilling Magic: Rubs, Butters, Marinades, Sauces, and Salsas for Easy Gourmet Meals All Photos: Kelly Rossiter I have to admit that I have come to grilling fairly late, because I always had my husband do it.

taco chicken bowls $10.66 recipe / $1.33 serving This recipe is definitely “slow-cooker 101”. It’s probably one of the first recipes that most people learn to make in their slow-cooker. In fact, some version of Slow Cooker Taco Chicken Bowls is probably included in that little mini recipe book that comes with the slow-cooker when you buy it. BUT, I had to post it because I know there are probably a lot of you who haven’t made it yet and I can’t bear the thought of you missing out. This recipe is great for bachelors, students, or the chronically busy because it’s a “dump and heat” recipe. All you do is dump all of the ingredients together in a pot, and let it cook. I’m a black bean lover so next time I’m going to use two cans (or two can’s worth of homemade) beans and extend the recipe even further. Oh, also, this freezes well. Okay, one more thing.
