Flayed Witches Fingers (Ham and Asparagus Roll Ups)

One of my favorite party appetizers involves pickled veggie wrapped in cheese and meat. These Flayed Witches Fingers are easy to whip together with all store-bought ingredients.

Slap some softened cream… Continue reading Flayed Witches Fingers (Ham and Asparagus Roll Ups)

Who says peer pressure stays in high school? A while back I managed to finish my first glass, but it was Moscato so… Continue reading Barbeque Turkey Sliders

A perfect storm of circumstances would have to come together in order for the lowly 7-9 Seattle squad to have any remote… Continue reading SEAHAWKS!!
