  1. Given my obsession with small things, I was going to love this post no matter what the food was. The fact that it’s classic retro fare makes it all the better!

  2. Oh I remember LOVING lit’l smokies when I was a kid. I was recently reminded of them when trying to come up with ideas for mini foods for a Doll themed party for my daughter. I wish I had seen these two awesome recipes. Love how simple your mac and cheese sauce is to make.

  3. This post is super old but I just had to comment. These recipes would make a great lunch idea for toddlers! Going to try this out today!!
