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.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

When life gets busy I turn to easy comfort foods. I am currently working, quite furiously, on my next book. In fact, I just passed the half way point!  My work on the book, as well as my trips to BlogHer and IFBC New Orleans, mean that this month I will not have as much time for cooking anything other than pies.  Anything I can bake and stash in the freezer makes me feel a little more secure.  I love knowing I am just a few moments...
