Puh-MIN-a Cheese (aka Pimento Cheese)

My friend, Weatherly, had a small party and gave all the guests a container of homemade pimento cheese (also spelled pimiento). (What a hostess! Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?) It was delicious. I have always struggled with pimento cheese, because I LOVE it, and it's so simple, but hard to master. I have played around with Weatherly's recipe, and here's what I use now. We recently were invited to a cookout, and I brought pimento cheese to put on burgers and hotdogs (yum!). John and I also LOVE to eat grilled pimento cheese sandwiches - made just like a grilled cheese, but with . . . you know . . . pimento cheese!

A birthday . . . blondie???

Frances's birthday is on Wednesday. She'll be 8. But even though I love making birthday cakes, all she wants is a birthday blondie! I made blondies a few months back and she loved them. I guess it's sort of like a cookie cake. Oh well. More to come when I actually get baking. Her party is next Saturday!
