Who Doesn’t Love a Crab Cake?

Failure to Success as I Accidentally Made Creamed Spinach

So in an attempt to embrace the Irish in my family I’ve been on the hunt for Irish recipes. I’d love to hear from someone actually living in Ireland about Irish foods. Sadly my American friends with Irish roots were of no use with recipes unless they were drinks. I discovered this recipe that was…

Some recipes make me laugh out loud. Irish Nachos – how does this work?  Laughing, they’re made with potato rounds, no tortilla chips. Are these real nachos? No. These are a delicious potato snack. Nom nom. They’re crazy easy. And kid approved. They’re great for a crowd. HEATHER’S POTATO ROUNDS Go HERE for my recipe….

I Made Irish Soda Bread

I’ve never attempted Irish Soda Bread, though the hubs has made it a few times for wine dinners. As much as I love eating carbs, I am coming to the conclusion that I am not much of a lover of making yeast dough. It isn’t that they’re hard. I think it’s just a matter of…

Irish Apple Crumble

Homemade Falafel Bites

Rosemary-Lemon Popcorn

Since my family is completely popcorn obsessed I’m always curious about recipes for savory flavored popcorn. I was raised in a house that used butter & salt only, nothing else.
