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...

Elotes Grits with Chili Lime Shrimp

My first experience with elotes was at a dingy little cart outside a gas station taco stand in Dallas. Classy, no? The woman who...

I went to Camp Blogaway over the weekend, and to celebrate I baked a coffee cake! This year Luck Leaf sponsored* my trip to Camp Blogaway and asked me to create a new recipe perfect for a weekend in the mountains. Along with some fun items to give to some lucky campers – like muffin liners, pie carriers, samples of their Premium Fruit Pie Fillings, and funky retro timers – I brought this cake to share. After dinner, while...

King Ranch Chicken Tostadas

I love casseroles. They are what I consider the perfect comfort food. Why? Well, they are usually easy to make, they can be frozen ahead for times when the act of cooking seems to much to bear, and they are a complete meal in one dish. As I said, I love casseroles but I rarely eat them. My husband, you see, hates most casseroles. I am not sure if it is a texture thing, or a visual thing, but he won’t eat them most of the time....
