Let’s take a moment to appreciate ugly food, darlings. Deviled ham definitely isn’t beautiful, but it is versatile, and delicious. Deviled ham takes me back to church potlucks and my mother’s first forays into making deviled eggs (thanks to said potlucks). Her recipe for deviled eggs was to dump a can of deviled ham into some egg yolks, mash, and scoop back into the whites. Deviled eggs must have deviled ham, right? There was no google back then to search for and compare recipes for “authenticity”, so this seems like a plausible conclusion, right? (more…)

It’s time for another episode of “Things that Make Us Smile”! In this one, we’ll talk about mini foods, and Asian Tuna Sliders, because both definitely make us smile. Finger foods are always a favorite for parties and people with hands of all sizes. They’re fun in the way foods on a stick are fun, and mini sandwiches are very very fun.

You’re probably wondering what black garlic is and why we’re using something that looks burnt in hummus. While this Wikipedia article can help with loads of details and a history of black garlic, I’ll give you a quick overview here. Black garlic is basically garlic that’s been heated over the course of several weeks so that it basically caramelizes. The cloves are soft and have a very mellow garlic flavor as opposed to the sharp flavor you find in fresh garlic. In terms of flavor, think of it as being one step beyond oven roasted garlic in terms of mellow-ness.  (more…)

The first time I truly understood the power of the slow cooker meatball as a powerhouse appetizer was at my baby sister’s rehearsal dinner. To keep costs down, they opted to have a casual rehearsal dinner with a mix of homemade and store-bought foods. I made a few easy desserts and large lasagnas and bagged salad was purchased at a warehouse club. For appetizers, we served a few assorted purchased items, and slow cooker meatballs. Can you guess what disappeared first?  (more…)

About a year or so ago, a local blogger friend of mine, Sarah from Capital Moms, was hosting a blogger event to celebrate the opening of a local restaurant’s new location. I decided to attend and totally fell in love with the place. Cava Grill is a local chain that serves Mediterranean food in the “walk through a line and pick your base/protein/toppings” format so popular nowadays. The Godfather and I like it, and we’ve been to several locations since that initial event, because it’s good food. The nearest location is about 20 minutes away in decent traffic though. So naturally, I took some inspiration from their menu, and I replicated their crazy feta dip and make my own crazy feta dip copycat recipe.   (more…)
