Hi All, I am so sorry I have been MIA for May. May is as crazy as December! We did have our third and youngest daughter graduate from Baylor. Meg will start a new job as the media specialist for a child protection organization in Austin. We are so excited for her and this next chapter.
I have been cooking a lot - just family favorites mainly. Homemade pimento cheese has been a new staple in our house. I have made it twice recently. It is so nice to keep in the fridge for sandwiches or snacking with crackers or celery. I LOVE it. We started making this years ago during our summer family trips to the beach. I think it was my very first blog post back in the summer of 2010. I have been making less than then recipes calls for. The recipe is 3 lbs of three different cheese - I have been doing two lbs and adding less of everything. So much of this recipe is going by your preferred taste and texture!
I have been trying new foods with my air fryer - jicama fries and I even made radish fries recently. And.... I don't like radishes but these are great! I have tried thinly sliced radish fries, thickly sliced - even sliced extra thin with a mandolin. Radishes have so much water, I like the little bit thicker slice. They shrink a lot during cooking. I like the pre-sliced I got at Walmart yesterday. I am trying okra fries next!
Wash radishes or buy precut radishes. Slice to desired thickness - maybe 1/8 - 1/4 inch. Pat dry. Spritz with an olive oil and toss in sea salt and favorite seasoning. Cook in air fryer basket at 380 for 10+ minutes, shaking and tossing around about every 4 minutes or so. Cook until desired texture. Serve with favorite Ranch or dipping sauce.
