      Baba ganoush and hummus are pretty much like brothers who could agree on everything except chicks. Well, chickpeas. If you switch out hummus' chickpeas with eggplant, the result is a silky, tangy spread you'll be enjoying by the spoonful.

      It wasn't until high school, when I met my first south of the Mason Dixon line native, that pimento cheese and I were introduced. My friend Russ' mom flew from Memphis to see him, with a sizable vat on ice packs of the one thing her son had requested. You know, back before blended cheese could potentially be a weapon.

      This potted salmon makes a great appetizer. The horseradish cuts the richness of the salmon and the pickled cucumber lifts everything. It looks great, too. If you’re pressed for time, you can eat the cucumbers right after making them, but they are best after a few days.
