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...

Tex-Mex Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy potatoes, smothered in cheese, are my idea of heaven. April has been a super busy month for me. I was hired to do the photography for a cookbook and my deadline is the 30th.

Doing this kind of work is rewarding, but it leaves little time for recreational recipe development. That’s not to say I...

Four-Cheese Grilled Pimento Cheese and Bacon Sandwiches

I am a sucker for a good grilled cheese sandwich. Not just any grilled cheese, mind.  Yes, growing up I loved grilled cheese sandwiches made from processed cheese slices and that cotton candy white bread.  Let’s just say my palate has matured.  These days I have some pretty strict standards for grilled cheese.  They are as follows: The Bread – The bread must be something crusty, a little rustic, and cut no thinner than...
