Who said that our favorite spreads and dips could only be enjoyed during football season? I don’t know about y’all, but I am ready for some deliciously spreadable foods this spring.

We have all have heard the phrase, “Bacon makes everything better”, so I’ve decided to make my sunny, Florida, spring day a lot better by creating my Bacon Horseradish and Cheddar Spread to share at my best friends pool gathering today. The weather is perfect today, and we plan on enjoying a drama-free day of relaxation poolside with snacks and cold ones.
