  4. Hi, Kristin. Glad you took a week off to enjoy the holidays. You picked two of my favorites from your collection -- your bacon topped meatloaf and those gorgeous tie dye cupcakes. I shared a buffalo chicken salad with blue cheese dressing recipe, a carnival style caramel corn recipe, a Greek moussaka recipe, a German pork and sauerkraut recipe, and a sesame chicken meatballs recipe today. Thank you for hosting us again and have a great week!
