Southern Recipes for the Kentucky Derby!

While I’m much more inclined to watch all of the great NBA games this weekend, I know that tons of people (especially in the South) are going to be checking the 137th Kentucky Derby tomorrow.

I think Southern food is seriously delicious, and I’ll never forget my vacation to South Carolina years ago just because of the cuisine. Since I know that lots of people enjoy having Southern dishes while they watch the derby, I’ve got a fun menu ready and waiting for you.

These bite-sized treats are perfect to munch on while watching the race!
