Superbowl Snacks!!!!

Just wanted to share a picture of our GameDay Spread.  I just watched the game with a couple close friends, but we made sure we were totally entrenched in snacks….not to mention beer, but I didn’t bother taking a picture of that….. Oh and I’d picked the Packers on the day (Since my Pats bowed [...]

Un-Crabcakes and Southwestern Corn Pudding

This was a Southern themed dinner, albeit from different sides of the south.
