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....

Fudge Brownie Salted Caramel Cheesecake Pie

Oh, hello there! It has been a while! Since last we spoke I have traveled to Ireland for my Kerrygold adventure, lost my sweet little beagle Zuzu, and spent the last seven months (and counting) in and out of hospitals and rehab facilities with my father who has been given two death sentences only to recover and go back to rehab. He is stubborn! I have also written another cookbook (The Everything Dutch Oven Cookbook out in August and...

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.

Cheesy Roasted Baby Potatoes

I’m an overachiever. Anyway, I have been working with Kerrygold to develop some recipes over the last year, and this month they wanted my very best side dish. Easy. Carbs...

Graham Coconut Caramel Cake

I have not made a cake for fun in a while. The problem with having a whole cake sitting around the house is I will eat a whole cake. I know I will. I have seen me do it. So, generally I do not make cakes to keep around the house, but I was feeling domestic the other day, and I was also feeling rather nostalgic. When I was little I would spend a few weeks with my grandmother Lola. She spoiled me with impunity, and would make me all...

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...
