Velveeta, Rotel, tortilla chips, and memories: you might not pair the latter with the first three, but that's exactly what Sarah Hepola -- Salon writer, personal essayist, and (full disclosure) my friend -- does in this gorgeous piece from Gilt Taste.


If you've ever longed for something even as you knew it wasn't what you really wanted and needed any more -- or hell, if you've ever craved Velveeta -- this is for you: Sarah links her Texas upbringing, her years in New York, and her eventual return to her hometown together in a stream of memories linked together with a plate of cheese dip and chips.
