Homemade Whipped Cream

5573417954_e823fe6bf1

Store bought whipped cream is one of those items that I can no longer justify for a couple of reasons.  The main reason is cost.  Whipping cream is less than half the cost of a tub of Cool Whip.  Another reason is because of the taste.  Homemade whipped cream tastes much more fresh.  Believe it […]

Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

It’s just about strawberry season here in southern California.  The prices have already dropped in the supermarkets and I’ve been loading up.  Judah loves eating them with his breakfast, lunch and dinner although I try to vary it up between other fruits as well.  I had a few strawberries in my fridge the other morning […]

Roasted Cauliflower

The first day of spring has passed, and here I am posting (twice) about a winter vegetable.  Maybe I’m just bitter because after moving from Chicago to Southern California last summer, I was under the impression that the winter would be mild and spring would be warm.  Well, the winter here was definitely mild compared […]

How To Cut Cauliflower

5551722479_e1393a3628

There are probably two major groups of you out there.  Those who like cauliflower and those who don’t.  But, I have to wonder out of those that say they do not like it, how many of you have even tried it?  And, out of that group, how many haven’t tried it only because you do […]

Guinness Milk Chocolate Ice Cream

5545010019_272fdb9436

Do I dare start this post by stating that this isn’t my kind of ice cream?  Very rarely do I post something that I do not like, and if I do share it, it is only because it won the approval from Ben, the almighty taste tester.    And, not only any approval, but a […]

Cheese, Ham and Chive Waffles

5536162421_cbb96f5120

Are you thrown off already just by the title?  Savory waffles, really?  Trust me, it took some time to convince myself to finally make these and try them.  The ingredients listed just didn’t seem to work in a waffle.  Ricotta cheese, cheddar cheese, ham, chives, and…orange zest?  Weird. Although we ended up having these for […]

Chicken and Mushroom Boxty

5531259572_287938e880

Let’s face it.  Irish food is not pretty.  This was the most decent photo I could snap of the Chicken and Mushroom Boxty before losing my patience with it completely.  Please don’t let the look of it turn you off.  I only share recipes worth sharing, and this is no exception. This is actually a […]

Guinness and Onion Soup with Irish Cheddar Crouton

If you read my post on Friday, then you are well informed of my venture for recipes that will give me a new-found excitement for St. Patty’s Day each year.  This is the second recipe I tried in order to accomplish that goal. This is basically a french onion soup, but I can’t tell you […]

Corned Beef and Cabbage Pizza

Saint Patrick’s Day (March 17) is quickly approaching.  I’m not the biggest fan of what may be considered traditional Irish food, so this isn’t really a time of year that I eagerly anticipate.  Apart from certain Boxty recipes and fillings that I actually like, the food sits too heavy for me, and seems a “wee […]

Coconut Chicken with Apricot Sauce

5510900235_14637940b3

A few months ago a friend of mine started an email recipe exchange with several of her friends.  Although I’m not exactly hurting to find new recipes, I was excited to join the group and see what everyone would share each month. I’m embarrassed to say that since I have so many recipes already bookmarked […]

Cheddary Chicken Pie

Don’t you love coming across recipes that offer shortcuts?  That’s what I love about this cheesy chicken pie.  You can choose to make your own pie crusts and chop up your own fresh veggies, or decide to make it a very quick weeknight meal by using pre-made refrigerated pie crusts with a bag of frozen […]

I already had my eye on these crescent roll appetizers, so I […]
