A classic southern snack and appetizer that’s also perfect for game day. I grew up in New York but there are two southern snacks or appetizers I love. The first is cornmeal hush puppies with honey butter and the second is pimento cheese.
The everything spread for summer corn. I have fond memories of fresh summer corn with this garlicky, parmesan spread. It’s more than addicting. As a teenager I would slather it on just about everything. Just make sure the whole household is eating it as it has generous amounts of garlic.
My late friend Kim used to make her famous shrimp for parties and porch gatherings at her home near the beach. There is not a summer I can remember that she didn’t serve these tasty shrimp. A few years ago, at my bridal shower she finally shared the recipe. This weekend I made them in her honor as she was born on Father’s Day.
