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...

Elotes Grits with Chili Lime Shrimp

Have you had elotes? I have discovered that I love and ADORE elotes.

Cheddar Beer Drop Biscuits

On a hot summer day there is nothing better than a frosty beer. Beer was not always my libation of choice. In fact my love affair with beer is fairly recent, about 8 years old.
