Hot Pimento Cheese Dip

Pimento cheese is an undeniably Southern tradition. And I’d argue up there with some of the tastiest! You can’t tell its one my favorites, can you? Usually, it spends its time as a favored sandwich spread, but we crazy kids below the Mason Dixon line have been known to shake things up from time to time. Instead of going the typical route, we’ve gone and ‘spiced’ things up a bit. Pun totally intended!

Crockpot Honey Buffalo Meatballs

It’s that time of year again. The time when all the men in my household lose their damn minds every weekend, and several weeknight’s too, yelling at the TV so loudly our neighbors probably think someone’s in serious trouble. There’s fist bumps, and you better watch out or you just might get sandwiched in between two semi-grown men in the midst of a full-force chest bump. My traditional decor has been over run with black & yellow, and sit down dinners have taken a hiatus to full on living room, TV trays & folding tables and picnic on a blanket dinner, tailgate parties. Yes, it’s football play-off season. And no game, however intense, however exciting or disappointing, is ever complete without some of Mom’s meatballs. The sauces may change, but our love for the this party app. does not. And this year, I decided to spice things up a bit with a Honey Buffalo version.
