The time-honored rituals of college students on Spring break are not lost on us here at Rick’s Picks. But since we’ve been quite busy planning the 2011 year in pickles at the home office, we haven’t been able to “take our talents to South Beach”, as LeBron James would say. But we still have been nicely represented. Here’s a few snapshots of our Hotties styling and profiling in sunny South Florida.
And Hotties lovers, don’t forget to enter our Hotties recipe contest! Deadline is March 31st!
Need some help figuring what to make? Take a look at Jeff’s Hotties Gazpacho recipe for inspiration. Or read Anne Saxelby, THE cheesemaster’s post on a delicious Grilled Landaff and Hotties Sandwich that she served up on the 10th Annual International Pickle Day.
