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...

Blueberry Maple Drop Biscuits

Nothing beats a well made biscuit. When I first started to get interested in cooking I spent a lot of time learning about southern comfort foods.  I was raised by two generations of Texas women who grew up on southern food, so the food of my childhood leaned heavily toward traditional, stick-to-your-ribs fare.  Biscuits were always a particular favorite of mine.  Honestly I loved any and all bread, but fresh buttermilk biscuits really...

Baked Eggs with Homemade Sausage and Grits

Chorizo Cheddar Potato Puffs

It is almost time for the BEST part of Thanksgiving.

Apple Bacon Potato Cakes with Poached Eggs

I am a sucker for anything served with a poached egg. From salads to English muffins, poached eggs are among my favorite things to prepare and eat.   A perfectly poached egg is a thing of beauty, and when you break into the golden, oozing yolk … well I can’t think of many things that are better.  Now that the warmer weather is behind us I find myself craving the heartier foods that really stick to the ribs.  I am not much...

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole

I love a good casserole. Really, what’s not to love?  They are, with a few exceptions, easy to prepare, they can be made up in advance, and they are comforting.  When the weather turns chilly there is nothing I like better than a cozy casserole.  So, one morning a few days ago it was just a little chilly.  Not co but the wind had a little bite.   Obviously it was time to make a casserole!  While perusing a casserole cookbook,...
