Long Read. Going viral can ruin your life, even if all you did was sit on a couch.

Kyle and I are having some people over this weekend for a holiday get-together.  We had intended to have an apres ski party outside, but you try finding a rentable outdoor heater these days.  So we’ll just open all the windows to get the air flowing; all the guests are vaccinated, so we should be fine.

One of the best parts about hosting a party is the snacks.  Snacks are the best.  Appetizers are even better.  Like this Brie and Candied Bacon Grilled Cheese.  Or Mini Banh-Mi Inspired Tacos.  Or just anything on the Snacks and Starters Pinterest board that I never get to cook from enough.

    Just commenting to say that I have to bring an appetizer to a neighborhood party tonight and didn’t know where to start. My first thought was that Abra always has great unique recipe recommendations, so I searched the blog and found bacon and brie grilled cheese. Perfect. Thanks for coming through again!
