Ham & Cheese Sliders (and Turkey & Cheese too)

These ham & cheese sliders have been all over the blogosphere, as well as Pinterest the last few years.  I even had a coworker tell me years ago that her catering parents have been making them since she was a little kid and they're highly addictive.  I'm not going to lie - I've never really had a desire to make them.  Why, you ask?  Well, they have mayo and mustard usually - two of my least favorite things.  That being said, when looking for easy and delicious things to make for Rob's party a few weeks ago I knew these would be perfect for everyone else to eat.  I did adapt the recipe a bit, so that I could at least try one!

I was making about 72 sandwiches, which was time consuming, buy very easy.  Based on all the raves I'm still getting on these sandwiches, it's safe to say they were a huge hit and I won't hesitate to make them again if the occasion calls for it.  Even I enjoyed them, with the modifications I made!  I highly suggest if you like mayo and mustard though to make the original version because, well, let's face it... I'm weird for not liking those things that most people love!

Also, they're so easy to modify overall flavor profiles.  I made half ham & cheese, and the other half turkey & cheese.


Ham & Cheese (Turkey & Cheese, or any Meat & Cheese) Sliders
Ingredients:
24 White Dinner Rolls, such as Hawaiian Rolls
24 Slices Honey Ham, Honey Turkey, Roasted Chicken, etc.  
24 Small slices Swiss Cheese, or Cheese of your Choice (I used 1/2 a slice per sandwich, based on the slice size)
8 oz. soft cream cheese spread of choice (plain, chive & onion or garden veggie)
1 stick butter, melted
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice rolls in half, and spread on a thin layer of cream cheese.  Place a slice of meat and slice of cheese inside each roll.  Close rolls and place into a large baking sheet very close together.  

In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, onion, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and Parmesan cheese.  Pour evenly over all of the sandwiches.  Let sit for 10 minutes, or in fridge overnight, covered), to allow butter to set slightly.  Cover with foil and bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Uncover and cook for 2 more minutes.  Serve warm.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed!

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz.

Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
