Vivian's Pimento Cheese (Sandwiches)

"Wonderful flavor! Tangy, sharp and delicious! May be used in grilled sandwiches, on crackers or in celery pieces. Great for lunch or as an appetizer for parties. My sister, Vivian, is famous for her pimento cheese. Our family thinks she makes the absolute best! We had this speciality many times in childhood!"

    Very good, a lot like my mother used to make the kids. I shared it at work and someone made me write down the recipe. Thanks for a great snack, lunch or appetizer! Made for Recipe Swap.

    I stuffed some celery with it. I added finely chopped olives in with it and it was wonderful. It had everyone going back to the dish for more!

<p>Thanks for taking the time to stop by My Page! I am married to a quiet, but fun loving guy who cleans up the kitchen!! I have grandchildren who I adore. I am retired from being a paralegal and a real estate agent. I have also been a substitute teacher for the elementary grades in the public school system. All of my recipes are the tried and true type. Many of them have come from my 48 years of cooking, my mother's recipe box or other relatives. I like Taste of Home magazine and I am a big fan of foodnetworkTV. I am a southern girl and enjoy comfort foods!!! I am a big cookbook collector and have been for years. I enjoy baking desserts most of all. I also enjoy games on my laptop, growing flowers, lunches with friends, babysitting grandchildren, photography and traveling. Since life is so short I try to count my blessings each day and give to the less fortunate. I had gotten into a rut on what to cook. Therefore, I am so happy I found the Recipezaar site. Pet Peeve: People with a negative attitude. MY RATING SYSTEM: 5 stars - Excellent in taste. May have minor change. 4 stars - Adjustment in ingredients for flavor. 3 stars - Fair, but not sure whether I would repeat. 2 and 1 stars - I do NOT give. Zaar EVENTS IN WHICH I PARTICIPATED: Aus/NZ Swaps #15,#16 April, May 2008 Aus/NZ Swaps #20#21#22 Sept Oct Nov 2008</p>
