The good news is, sliders are incredibly easy and inexpensive to make at home and particularly great for Wee Savvies. Especially when you say, "we're having sliders for dinner." They'll think "YAY, sliders, fun!," even if they don't know what you're talking about. The ingredients in this recipe cost about $16 and they made 16 good-sized sliders (I counted by how many packages of rolls I ended up buying), and they were about twice the size as those at our local bar.

"What do I need, Savvy Girl," you ask? I'll tell ya: 1) a clean, dry glass vessel, preferably with a lid, 2) extra-virgin olive-oil and 3) a few sprigs of rosemary to start
I like to make small batches--a small jar or bottle is fine-- to make sure the oils don't go bad before we've used them. The oil will last about 2 months, so guesstimate how much you'll use up before you begin.
It is nary a day you can walk down the street in New York City without seeing a new cupcake cafe, cupcake cart or truck, or couture cupcakes lining the windows of previously cupcake-less bakeries.
Question: What is the BIG DEAL ABOUT CUPCAKES??? I have a theory. They're like BLTS (Bites, Licks, Tastes & Sips.) Something you eat standing up, doesn't require a fork or plate, and therefore can't have that many calories. Right?
