My favorite food, I must admit, is that which I can eat with my hands.

No forks required, no knives to slow me down–give me finger food and I am good to go! Finger foods make me feel like a kid again, and at the risk of sounding like a kid–they make eating fun (playing with your food for the win).

Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Bites


This recipe calls for my absolute favorite slow cooked pulled pork. My dad gave me this recipe, and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s got a hint of spice without being overpowering–and it finishes with a touch of sweetness from the dark brown sugar.

When the pork is tender and falling apart, you place a spoonful into adorable mini fillo shells. You can find these at Walmart, your local grocery story, or even Amazon! I use them for all sorts of things–everything from breakfast to dessert!
