This wonderful and easy skillet pasta dish includes sun-dried tomatoes, olives, pine nuts, feta cheese, and crushed red pepper flakes. This is an authentic alternative that gets rave reviews in our family.
Cooked shrimp and sliced fresh mushrooms are bathed in an opulent sauce of sauteed garlic, rich cream cheese, fresh parsley and a dash of basil. Toss with hot linguini and serve as an elegant appetizer or main dish.
My favorite burgers are 'Surprise Burgers'. The pineapple inside the burger adds a hint of sweetness, while the sauce adds some tanginess! Warning: the added sauce and pineapple makes for a mess with little ones!
A delectable prime rib roasts to perfect doneness under a coat of flour and rock salt. Served with mushroom-wine gravy, this impressive roast will delight your guests and family. Prepared horseradish, mashed potatoes, and green beans make great sides.
Noodles are topped with chicken and broccoli, then baked in a casserole with a white sauce and 2 kinds of cheese. This is an easy to make recipe that is great for potlucks, church gatherings, holidays, or outside gatherings.
Soda bread dough is flattened into a round circle, and divided into farls meaning 4 parts. It is then cooked on a dry griddle or pan. Traditionally this was the quickest way to make soda bread for unexpected guests who drop by for a bit of craic (good fun). It's best eaten fresh with butter and jam but is also delicious fried as part of an Ulster breakfast.
Cold black bean salad with a bite! It makes a great side dish for any Mexican or Southwestern dish. This recipe has become a healthy favorite in our family. Adjust the amount of serrano pepper to suit your spice tolerance.
Best if cooking is started the day before serving. Boston butt is the easiest to make on a small scale. Use a shoulder or a whole shoulder (which is a shoulder plus the Boston butt) for larger crowds. The sauce skimmed off the top is very, very hot and can also be used to make terribly hot chicken wings.
