Top of The Mornin from Debbie Fabre

I'm so excited to share a post with you from my friend and fellow blogger, Debbie Fabre :))  Debbie is the author of  http://deliciousdishesbydebbie.blogspot.com/ and was also a finalist in The Real Women of Philadelphia Contest.  Debbie was flown to Savannah GA, where she cooked her award winning "Mounds of Joy" pie for Paula Deen, The Deen Brothers, and Kraft Foods.
Here she is cooking her delicious pie for Paula Deen.  The incredible thing about Debbie Fabre is that not only is she beautiful, and a wonderful cook, she is also one of the nicest, sweetest, most genuine ladies you will ever meet.  So it is my pleasure to share her St. Patrick's Day Recipes with you.

Pot Of Gold Cheddar Soup
5 tsp. butter
1 small onion
1/3 cup flour
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. Hidden Valley Dry Ranch Dressing Mix
1 tsp. dry mustard
8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1. Begin by chopping onion and set aside.  Melt butter and saute onion until translucent (approx. 5 minutes).
2.  Stir flour into the butter and onion mixture.  Mix well and add chicken broth, milk, salt, cayenne pepper, ranch dressing, and mustard.  Stir ingredients together and simmer for 5 minutes. 
3.  Add cheddar cheese to soup mixture and stir until cheese is melted and well incorporated. 
4.  Serve and enjoy!

Irish Coffee
This version of Irish Coffee is non-alcoholic for those of you who do not drink liquor.  It's delicious and easy.  

1 cup (8 ounces) hot coffee
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 cup International Delight Irish Cream
1 heaping tbsp. vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

Combine coffee and brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved.  Add International Delight Irish Crème in a mug and stir to blend. Float softened ice cream or whipped cream on top. Serve immediately.
        From Debbie Fabre and I, we wish you a fun, fabulous, and delicious St. Patrick's Day!
