For a teeny little girl Violet sure does have a lot of love to give. There’s pretty much nothing she doesn’t love. Her list of favorite things are: snuggling, playing with other dogs or a playful kitty, toys, going on walks, car rides, and hanging out with us humans at the local cafe. Violet is looking for a home with another young, playful dog, preferable close to her size. A home with daily walks and copious amounts of snuggle time are on Violet’s wish list, too. If you’re looking for a companion to join you on your travels up north to avoid the heat or trips to San Diego to enjoy the cooler weather, Violet is the dog for you. She is such a well behaved, easy going, loving gal.

November comes along and minds are on travel, turkey and family gatherings. This classic slider provides an autumn twist. This Bacon and Bleu Cheese Slider will fast become a family favorite and change up the typical “hamburger night.” The dish is fun, and uses a slight shortcut with cornbread mix and it’s easy to get the kids involved (buttering the pan, mixing the ingredients, what kid doesn’t want to crack an egg?). If you aren’t a bleu cheese fan, easily substitute equal amount of goat or gorgonzola cheese. For an extra kick, add one jalapeno (seeded) to the cornbread mix. Prefer a moister cornbread muffin? Replace 1 cup of the milk with one can creamed corn. Kids typically prefer a toned down version of the mayo, use more or less of the chipotle depending upon your families taste. These sliders make great appetizers for your holiday parties or a great main dish for family meals. Enjoy!
