My Mama's Cheesy Broccoli Bites!

I've probably mentioned it before that my mom is a fabulous cook!   She is constantly amazing us all with her wonderful recipes and gourmet spreads.   She can throw the best dinner party you've ever seen!    Last year I bought her a personalized chef's coat and she wears it whenever she cooks, haha.   She likes to pretend she is a professional chef!

Paula Deen has a contest going on right now where you can win $25,000 by submitting an original recipe using Philadelphia cream cheese.  You have to make a tutorial video and submit it as well.   So this week I filmed my mom making a delicious appetizer that she made up: "Cheesy Broccoli Bites."  They are sooo yummy!

She was really nervous to make the video, but after a few minutes she warmed up.  I kept telling her to just relax and to remember, as Julia Child says "never apologize!"  Haha.   Here is the video and a link to her recipe.  I think the video turned out pretty cute, and the recipe really is delicious!   I hope she wins!  

.....Bon Appetit!
