This month it is all about Picnic Recipes!

The absolute top recipe of all time since my blog was created in 2012 is my family recipe for Hot Dog Chili. It was also my very first recipes! I just updated the photos and the post as my photography has greatly improved! LOL!

Growing up in SC, my parents used to own a very popular mom & pop gas station and lunch counter called PB& J. It was the spot for lunch. All the high school athletes would go there on game days to eat after school. I tried to help Dad on those days. Ha-ha!
