Two tips:

1- If you see Big Spoon peanut butter, buy it. Then get your favorite dark chocolate bar and dip pieces into the peanut butter. Instant dessert gratification. One local bakery here has Big Spoon peanut butter croissants, but I keep missing them. And get two jars. They go FAST, they’re that good.

2- If you are into a Southern food March Madness, here is the bracket for you. I think I keep waffling between pimento cheese vs deviled eggs and mac and cheese vs collard greens.
