A few weeks ago we took a drive up to my favorite place on earth, the beautiful state of Vermont. We did all our usual things that we do up there…horseback riding, hiking, taking long luxurious naps with the windows open to let in the sounds of birds chirping and the occasional moo from theRead More & Get the Recipe
I love recipes that take regular sized comfort foods and turn them into little mini-sized versions just right for nibbling, and this recipe for Welsh Rarebit Bites does that very thing. If you haven’t had the wonder that is Welsh Rarebit (or Welsh Rabbit, as it is pronounced at my house), it’s a basically meltedRead More & Get the Recipe
I realized WAY late in the game that April is National Grilled Cheese Month, which is a pretty pathetic state of affairs for a food blogger. Especially one (like me) who lives for a good grilled cheese sandwich. In a last minute effort to catch up, I’ve included some of my all-time favorite grilled cheeses in the related posts at the bottom of this one, but given that April is also 3 short months away from National Bikini Month, I am combining this grilled cheese with a delectable asparagus and apple salad to make it a fair fight between grilled cheese and the possibility of me getting into a bikini in 3 months.
Here’s my latest in the series of one bowl suppers that the Southern husband and I have been experimenting with over the last couple of months.

Oh yes.
Out of all the many many many appetizer and salad-type recipes I’ve written about on my blog over the years, this one is hands-down the most dramatic, the most delicious and the easiest one of them all. It’s just plain show-off beautiful, and you can make it in about ten minutes. No kidding. Ten minutes. I wish I could take credit for inventing all this fabulousness, but I can’t…more on that later. But I did make the version up in that picture there, and you can too!
In my experience, these two things are true: Every once in a while it is perfectly acceptable to have sandwiches for supper. And everything tastes better when a) you call it a slider and b) you make that slider out of a biscuit. So on a recent weeknight when the day had been hecticer than hectic, I invoked all three of these truisms and ditched whatever I had originally planned to make in favor of these quick little cute little delicious little ham, cheese and apple sliders. On biscuits.
