Saint Patrick's Day is coming. Time for too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra-ing about Molly Malone, Danny Boy and my Wild Irish Rose. Time for dancing a jig while not spilling a drop. Time for decking out in shades of forest, emerald, mint and moss. For celebrating my freckles and green eyes while lamenting my lack of red-headedness. And the… Continue reading The Best Corned Beef Dinner Ever

Baked Mashed Potatoes

Otherwise known as "The Most Awesome Potatoes Ever". Let me just say that I've tried to find a substitute for the gloriousness of potatoes. It just never works out. Kudos to you if roasted cauliflower has found a place in your heart where french fries used to live. I'm in awe of those who think… Continue reading Baked Mashed Potatoes

I love a good breakfast bake. It's so adaptable. You can put just about everything in them. This is my base recipe for a perfectly filling and delicious morning meal.

Hasselback Potatoes

As a lifetime Seattle Seahawks fan, I was sad to see the starting career of Matt Hasselback come to a close last week as Jake Locker was named the quarterback for the Titans.

Smothered Pork Chops

I love meals that have so much good stuff covering your plate, you can't even really tell what kind of meat is underneath. Careful not to overcook your pork (that is what's hiding under… Continue reading Smothered Pork Chops

Traditionally this meal is made using leftovers from a roast or ham., thrown together with potatoes and cabbage… Continue reading Bubble & Squeak

Spiced Honey Lemon Chicken & Sweet Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

I realized the other day (with horror) that I have never made brussels sprouts. Maybe a carry-over from childhood rearing it's ugly head in my adult life? I didn't like them when I was little - really the only veggie I have no taste for - so I've never thought to make them for my… Continue reading Spiced Honey Lemon Chicken & Sweet Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Mom’s Potatoes

I look forward to these potatoes every time my mom has a brunch. They are amazingly rich. They equally amazingly bad for you. But I don't care. I love them. Now you can too. I actually was so excited to dig into these when I made them recently that I forgot to take a photo.… Continue reading Mom’s Potatoes
