Pimiento Cheese Spread

This is the best & easiest PC recipe I've tried. A few suggestions: double it; I like it with Kerrygold Reserve Cheddar (from Ireland); use a good quality mustard; hand-grate the cheddar (with a traditional box grater rather than processor for better texture; then just stir it all together with a spoon). I also add a little bourbon (1 tbs per above recipe, 2 if you double it). I also add a little garlic powder and cumin and cut back on the Tabasco (my wife likes it less spicy). Or, just follow the recipe as is. It's really good.

A La Provence in Tallahassee, an early opinion

I too was there opening night. Though there was no advance publicity (other than owner Bill Bertoncin alerting Albert's regulars via a sparce web site), the place was packed. Though there's no way they could have expected the huge crowd, the kitchen & wait staff kept pace and did a phenomenal job. A layed beet salad was the bomb, as was a seafood fricasse. Great food, reasonable prices, warm & inviting. We'll be regulars.
