THE GREEN MARY

I’m new to the whole Bloody Mary thing, as I’m not really into tomato juice, but I love the idea of a savory cocktail. The key is balance and liberal heat. So in celebration of St. Patty’s, I thought a green take on the hungover brunch classic was in order. In this version I lose the tomatoes and include an […]

VEGAN SUSHI

I looooooooove sushi. Love it. But since I’m well into my second trimester, I can’t enjoy classic sushi as often as I’d like. So instead of depressing choices like chicken teriyaki sushi rolls, I looked to vegan options that offer similar textures and colors as my favorite fish. All of these look adorable and taste even better. My favorite is […]

CHEDDAR JALAPEÑO GREEN ONION DONUTS

These are my new favorite things. Savory donuts, easily baked, and full of spicy goodness.  The texture stays light and fluffy, so you can eat wayyyyyyy too many of these before you realize you’re a brunch monster.  I might even try making these with corn meal, as sort of an epic breakfast cornbread situation.  But until then, nom nom nom […]

IRISH PANCAKES

So you had too much whiskey and green beer, eh? No judgement: I enjoy a bit of whiskey myself being of Welsh decent, but I’m going to go out on a limb and assume you need a hang over cure.  So, imagine if pancakes and english muffins had a baby.  Soft, fluffy, and warm, but also filled with nooks and […]

IRISH COFFEE

Somewhere between dessert and cocktails lies Irish Coffee. It’s sweet, but with a bite from the spicy Irish whiskey. This isn’t a traditional Irish Coffee, which has sugar mixed in and a float of unwhipped cream on top, but I love the velvety texture the whipped cream gives the coffee, plus the cinnamon is a nice touch too. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS […]

PASTRAMI-BRISKET HASH

The Quiet Man is one of those classics that stands firmly with two feet in it’s time period. Like the film itself, showing an Ireland intersecting the modern and the traditional, John Wayne wrestling a kiss out of an uncooperative Maureen O’Hara can feel uncomfortably old fashioned. But, I love this movie, despite its apparent fustiness through a modern lens. […]

IRISH SHORTBREAD

These aren’t cookie monster sugar aneurism cookies.  These are the kind that you sneak one by one, each time you pass the counter, as the day wears on.  Before you know it, you’ll pause next to an empty plate and realize, perhaps with a twinge of guilt, that you polished off a plate slowly and discreetly. Butter is the base […]

GREEN ALMOND MILK

In honor of the month, I’m adding a bit of green to some of my favorite classics. Almond milk is a fantastic canvas on which to build flavors, and adding a bit of fiber and vitamins with some kale, spinach, and romaine, is a great way to add a bit more oomph. What will you add to your almond milk? […]

REAL IRISH CREAM

One of the strange challenges of being a food blogger is coming up with fresh content for holidays that happen every year. How many types of flag cake can you really make? How many twists on turkey and gravy? And with St. Patrick’s Day, do I day try to find a chic or delicious way to make green beer? Not […]
