  1. This is pure winter, comfort food (from Florida!). What cheesey goodness with a little spice. Saving this. Many winter nights ahead where I need melty goodness and some heat!


  2. That would go great with so many things. I could see it being a side with bbq or a base to a skewer of grilled shrimp in a very extreme adaptation of \”shrimp and grits\” (corn/grits). Happy holidays to you guys!


  3. ahh I've just stumbled across all of your banana bread, pumpkin bread, almond bread recipes and they all look and sound delicious but this one is my all time favourite!
