“My grandmother’s cheese rounds are a signature dish of mine. They are super southern and old school and people go crazy for them! It’s also nice to have a finger food when people arrive so they can stand and continue talking. I always find it frustrating to carry on a conversation while struggling with a cheese platter for instance.” — Joyce Downing Pickens
