Mashed Potatoes with bits of green and butter in the middle

Colcannon Potatoes

I made these Irish Colcannon Potatoes for the first time for St. Patrick's Day in 2021 and they were TO DIE FOR! My hubby is not a fan of kale, and though I'm not a fan of it, I'll eat it in a salad with other greens. However, I heard somewhere that if you cook your kale a little bit it removes the bitterness, and we found this to be quite true. We couldn't detect…... view full recipe

Creamy Risotto with Mushrooms garnished with parsley

Mushroom Risotto

Risotto is an Italian rice dish that is savory and creamy and oh so delicious! There are a variety of ways you can change up basic risotto, but the basic risotto is so good just by itself. This recipe is for Mushroom Risotto, but you can change it up. Instead of mushrooms you can add cooked shrimp, peas, or just leave it plain with the creaminess of the risotto itself along with some Parmesan cheese.…... view full recipe

Hollandaise Sauce with butter, lemons, eggs and pepper

Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise Sauce is something I could just spoon into my mouth when I make it. It's the thing I love best about Eggs Benedict. It's also the perfect sauce for asparagus. Try it on a good steak or salmon and you'll always be making Hollandaise sauce to put on top your steak and salmon. Hollandaise Sauce can be intimidating, and it can "break" easily if you don't pay attention to it. So let's take some…... view full recipe

toasted bread stuffing with raisins, celery, onions, carrots, and apples

Stuffing

I know there's a few debates about stuffing... Is it stuffing, or is it dressing? Do you cook it inside the turkey, or in the oven? Do you use bread or cornbread? These are just a few of the many debates about "stuffing". As for me, I am old school and use bread stuffing inside the turkey the way my Momma always made it. Everyone loves it and if I don't stuff my turkey I'm…... view full recipe

Cabbage salad with green cabbage, orange carrots, and spices in a white creamy sauce

Brian’s Coleslaw

My husband LOVES coleslaw, and he has become quite the food critic over the years. I guess I've spoiled him! He says often times coleslaw can be either too sweet, not wet enough, mush, no flavor, or whatever he can find to come up with. So we scoured recipes in cookbooks and over the internet and tried out many of them. He found one that was "ok, but not quite there yet", so after a…... view full recipe

Light and Fluffy Cream with fresh red strawberries with green leaves

Devonshire Cream

This is really a "Mock" Devonsire Cream since the cream itself doesn't come from Devon, England. But it's just as delicious, and much easier and quicker to make than Clotted Cream. It literally takes less than 5 minutes to make. I serve it with scones, and I'll use it just as I do whipped cream sometimes, try it with apple pie, you'll be hooked! The tang from the sour cream gives it a special flavor…... view full recipe

Jar with lemon curd next to whole and cut lemons on a blue and white tea towel

Lemon Curd

Lemon Curd is a wonderfully delicious, sweet and tart treat that has a myriad of uses. I use it primarily to go with Scones. But I also use it fill in tart shells, as a layer in between layers of cake, on top of Strawberry Shortcake, in mini puff pastry shells topped with a dollop of Devonshire Cream, and so much more. Just be creative. Whatever might sound good with a sweet and sour lemon…... view full recipe
