Irish Cheese Burgers

Irish Cheese Burgers

I have burgered with booze before, of course, but today, we're really all about the cheese.  Specifically, Kellygold's Dublinier, which is a little difficult to explain, but texturally, it's like a dry cheddar or perhaps a Parmesan block, yet it's a…

Beef Stroaganoff, or I Made Too Much Steak Last Night
