It’s almost picnic and tailgate season! That means I’m going to be making lots of snacks and treats (and sangria, of course) to share with large groups. One of my favorite tailgate treats is sausage balls. I usually end up making two batches: one to share, and one for myself. While I have my go-to, tried and true sausage balls recipe, I decided to kick it up a notch with another favorite Southern snack: pimento cheese.
Okay for real, is it spring yet? It’s rained more in the last month than it hasn’t in Chattanooga, and I’m over it. At least this means the plants and trees will be nice and green this year, and maybe we won’t have to worry about a drought? Anyway, until then, I’ve got another cocktail recipe that will get us in the spring spirit: a Tennessee Meyer Lemonade cocktail.
I may be a little biased, but Chattanooga is one of the prettiest cities I’ve ever lived in. We don’t call it the Scenic City for nothing. With a name like that, you can probably imagine how many beautiful and perfectly Instagrammable photo spots there are in Chattanooga. Just browse through all the #chattanooga hashtags on Instagram, and you’ll see what I mean.
Well, happy almost-end-of-February, y’all! I wish I could say February was full of lots of exciting things, but it was actually pretty quiet, comparatively. But I’m enjoying the slower, quieter months while I can, because I know it won’t stay this way for long. March is already filling up!
I know, I know, my fondness for sangria has almost reached joke level. But with so many seasonal flavors and blends to play with, can y’all blame me? They’re so easy to mix up that I can’t resist experimenting. This week, I’m excited to share my blood orange sangria recipe that was a quick favorite among my friends.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. The holiday we all love to hate. For some, it’s just another day on the calendar. For others, it’s a day to show someone just how special they are to you—whether that person is a significant other, spouse, or just a dear friend. But there’s one other person you should never forget to take time for on Valentine’s Day—and that’s yourself!
