Sparky got me Vivian Howard's cookbook for Christmas. (If you don't know who Vivian is, then look her up you lazy uninformed bastards.) And I decided to make one of her restaurant's most popular dishes, pimento cheese grits with salsa.
The verdict: DELICIOUS. The grits were fantastic and the pimento cheese and salsa complimented each other like crazy. I am definitely making this dish again.
Confession #2: I didn't follow Vivian's recipe exactly, I used it as a template rather than something to exactly slavishly follow. Mine turned out fine, even if they were a little less crispy looking then hers looked in her cookbook.
Sidenote, once I finish reading her cookbook I will review it here, so stay tuned.
