Dad’s Traditional Welsh Cheese Rarebit

Let’s talk about Welsh Cheese Rarebit. On a rare occasion, when we were children, my Dad would cook for us. It was a big deal! It was a novelty, but most of all, he made it fun. Like an adventure. We’d all be right on top of him, waiting in anticipation. My favorite was Dad’s Welsh Cheese Rarebit.

McMullan’s Irish Nachos

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!! I’ve actually been cooking Irish recipes all week, but the standout is these potato nachos, in the style of McMullen’s Pub, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. So there’s the name:  McMullan’s Irish Nachos. These are crispy, crunchy homemade potato chips loaded with cheese, crisped corned beef or other protein of choice, and pickled jalapenos. And sour cream, if you don’t forget to add it like I did before I took pics!

Copycat Panera Steak & White Cheddar Panini

In an unexpected twist, I fell in love with the Steak & White Cheddar Panini at Panera Bread. See, I have another “go-to” sandwich but when I was out with a friend, I followed her lead. Yeah, I’m a rule breaker these days! A rebel! It was so good, I’m glad I got out of my “rut” and I recreated it here, for you.
