I love the worry-free factor of these bites. The pimento cheese can be made several days ahead, and the recipe can be halved and still turns out great. I don't have a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, so I hand-mixed the pimento cheese. Win over any Super Bowl fan when you read more.
At a barn shindig, serve a hearty meal with plenty of napkins to mop up the finger-licking good eats.
Start the meal off with a spicy appetizer in the form of shrimp with barbecue seasonings. Slow-cooked beef brisket is a savory, smoky, and scrumptious entree. It's also the perfect cut of meat to affordably feed a crowd.
Classic cowboy sides — barbecue "baked beans" and crisp apple coleslaw — round out the mouthwatering menu. To look at these recipes, read more
When YumSugar asked me to watch the pilot episode of Food Network's new cooking show, Down Home With the Neelys, I wasn't jumping for joy. The commercials seemed over the top, routine, and like the network had just found more big personalities. However, after watching the show — I laughed out loud — I was hungry for more!
Luckily, I got the chance to speak with Gina and Pat on the phone! They are one warm, fun couple and my Tivo is already set for tomorrow at 11 a.m.
The show is not only a clever, informative cooking show, but it's about the dynamic relationship between the high school sweethearts. Gina Neely is a firecracker, both friendly and feisty. Her husband Pat knows his barbeque and is incredibly personable. To see what happened when I went down home with the Neelys, read more
With all the hullabaloo over at the Food Network, I was interested to see this press release about Pat and Gina Neely. The couple own and operate several famous Bar-B-Que joints in Memphis and Nashville, and are now taking their recipes into Food Network's kitchens. In their new show Down Home With the Neelys, Pat and Gina will share their secrets for ribs, spaghetti, shortcake, and more.
I haven't seen an episode yet — they begin on Saturday, Feb. 2 — but I imagine it's going to be similar to the rest of the Food Network's kitchen shows. Yet no matter how formulaic, I am curious to see how theirs will turn out. It's nice to see such a cute couple cooking together. Plus, I'm glad to see a little more diversity on Food Network — you have to admit they're skewing awfully white these days. Also, did I mention I love bbq? I can't imagine that their recipes are going to be wonderfully healthy, but if they taste great, that's okay with me!
So how about you? Will you be tuning in?
