Tex-Mex Wedge Salad

Do you like salad? Believe it or not, I really like a good salad. In Texas, when the weather gets warm, it is nice to have a cool, crisp salad. Now, this is not to say I like a really healthy salad. This is me we are talking about. I like a rich, creamy dressing, lots of fresh toppings, some cheese, and – obviously – bacon. Kerrygold asked me to share with you a salad featuring their butter and cheese*, and that is exactly...

Mango Chutney and Bacon Grilled Cheese

What is the fastest comfort food you can make? Aside from a bowl of ice cream, or something store bought, I think grilled cheese is probably the fastest comfort food recipe in my repertory. In about 10 minutes you can go from desperately hungry to content, and you only dirty one pan! This grilled cheese also satisfies my need for sweet and salty as it has hot utney and thick sliced smoked bacon added to the mix. This sandwich really...

Cheesy Roast Beef Pie Bites

Another year draws to a close. 2013 was a big year for me in many ways. Lots of life changing events. The most important of these was in February when I lost my beautiful, and always inspiring, Aunt Ruby. I still can’t really believe she is gone. If you know me at all you know she was a source of inspiration to me. A real treasure. She was a strong, smart, spunky lady who had a ready smile, a warm heart, and baked a killer pecan...

Elotes Grits with Chili Lime Shrimp

Have you had elotes? I have discovered that I love and ADORE elotes. For those of you who have not had the pleasure, elotes are a Mexican dish made up of corn – either on the cob or cut -slathered with a mixture of Mexican crema, queso fresco, and other seasonings like lime, cilantro, and hot sauce. My first experience with elotes was at a dingy little cart outside a gas station taco stand in Dallas. Classy, no? The woman who...
