Bacon Blue Cheese Burger Skins

For 22 years of my life, I avoided blue cheese like the plague.  I don’t know why I refused to try it.  I don’t know what made me decide that I’d despise it.  All I know is that, for the large majority of my life, I deprived myself of one of the most enjoyable flavors I have yet come to know.   It was wrong.
It was so, so wrong.

Luckily, after college (and after living for four years with the biggest blue cheese fanatic you’ve ever met), I started working on this blog, and I began to eat a lot of foods that I previously disliked.  You might already know that if you’ve read about my new appreciation for steak, or mangoes, or burgers.
Yes, I once even disliked burgers.  Now, I pile a ton of blue cheese onto my burgers as if to make an obscene gesture in the direction of Past Morgan’s poor taste.   I have come such a long way since those dark times.

Baked Pulled Pork Egg Rolls

Ever since my trip to North Carolina, I can’t get two things out of my head:  one, I really miss my cousin and wish we lived closer to each other (cue “d’awww”s), and two, I am developing an unhealthy obsession with pulled pork.
When I say “unhealthy obsession”, I mean that I’ve been finding ways to put pulled pork into every meal imaginable.  In the past month, I’ve put pulled pork in breakfast hash, on nachos, in chili, over rice, in lettuce wraps, on pizza, and in tacos.  I had a dream that I made a pulled pork cocktail, and that was when I knew the madness had to end.  Not before really pondering whether or not I could make pulled pork infused bourbon, though.

Spicy Pork Bulgogi Sliders

It’s not often that you see Asian food gracing tables or tailgates once football season begins.  There are hamburgers, hot dogs, wings, pizza, 7 layer dip, and of course, plenty of beer, but nothing to represent the world’s largest continent.  I, for one, think that this is a tragedy (okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but you get the picture), and I’m here to try to help right that wrong.  Today, I’m going to introduce you to a flavor explosion that every meat-and-heat loving sports fan should get his or her hands on immediately– Spicy Pork Bulgogi Sliders.
Spicy Pork Bulgogi Sliders.  Perfect for football season! But wait! There’s more…

Buffalo Chicken Pull-Apart Bread

(Part of the Super Bowl Theme Thursday Series)

Before you go all crazy telling me what a great idea this is, let me apologize.  I did not make this recipe up.  I saw this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Pull-Apart Bread from Bev Cooks on Pinterest, and knew I had to try it out for myself, with a few adaptations to suit my tastes and make it easier.
