Cheesy Grits Cups with Bacon and Eggs

Creativity is hard. Really. I put a lot of pressure on myself to do and be my best. It comes from my father. Growing up he would expect me to be the best, no exceptions. For example, I struggled with math when I was in school. I had to study very hard and diligently to understand even the most basic concepts. When I had a big exam coming I would study each night, training hard to remember how to solve each different type of equation....

Mac and Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

I have had a lot on my plate lately. I think that calls for some comfort food. My father, who has been in and out of the hospital for the last few years, is back in the hospital. He has an infection and other complications that require him to stay there for the foreseeable future. My mom, ever the trooper, has been staying with him as much as possible, and when she can’t be there I go in her place. He is in good spirits, but it...

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...

Kerrygold Open-Faced Breakfast Toasts

I’m a sucker for a good breakfast. I love breakfast, and I also love to entertain guests. When I have overnight guests I like to make them a special breakfast. Now, if you know me, you know I like things that LOOK like they took a lot of effort, when in reality they are dead simple. This recipe is one of those. It looks like you slaved, when in fact you could sleep in and still have time to get this yummy dish on the table! This...
