    I hear ya on the whole dip thing. I devour them and often need them as an appetizer for my dinner while I am cooking. But then it always happens…I am no longer hungry when dinner rolls around. Oh the struggles ;)

    What the heck are pimentos?! I mean, I have always seen pimento cheese, but what ARE they? I think I actually looked it up once, but then I forgot immediately. This dip looks so good, I don’t even care what they are. I just want it!

  • June 8, 2015 at 11:54 pm

    I love dips and should make them more often, but I’m afraid I’ll eat the whole darn thing. :) This looks delicious and wish I had some for my late night snack. Ha and I’m suppose to diet. Yea right. Pinned!!
