Pimento Cheese Spread

One of my dear friends knows good taste...especially in food and drink!  She asked me to do a taste test on her newly developed recipe...I was so honored that she valued my opinion enough to ask me!  Since she is not a blogger yet, she was honored that I asked her if I could share this recipe with all of you!  A recipe in Southern Living inspired her to take something new to her class.

It was fabulous!! I could NOT quit eating it...  She took it to an art class the day before and it was the hit of the snacks!
