Celebrate The Kentucky Derby in Your Own Home

The Kentucky Derby is a national tradition. Everyone sits around their TV to see who will win the big prize.

It is an exciting Derby year, with the front runner Eskendereya out of the race. The horse' trainer, Todd Pletcher, had to call it quits for Eskendereya because of swelling in the colts leg. This changes the race altogether. 

In Lexington we have a front row seat to the exciting, and never predictable Kentucky Derby. It is in Louisville, just a short drive from our front doors. 

If you don't feel like braving the crowds and paying hundreds of dollars for seats at the event, have your own Derby party. Make some delicious appetizers and amazing desserts. They will please everyone, and you will have front row seats to the big race! 

The following are easy and delicious dishes. You can throw these recipes together quickly and enjoy your party.
