Mostly Irish and English, some tried and true, others very, very, new! Orginally created for Zaar World Tour 2005 and living up to my reputation of being quick, easy and tasty these are now for those who desire authentic recipes from this region!!!
This is so yummy and satisfying! If English Toffee ice cream is a problem child, use vanilla and the following alternatives, 1/2 cup Heath bits, found near the chocolate chips in the grocery store or chop up 2-3 candy bars such as Heath or Skor and cut back on the chocolate bar.
This is from the Hutchinson House B&B in Faribault, MN. The owner received the recipes from a British friend in the 1960's. This quick bread is awesome, and best just toasted without any jam or jelly. I like to also sprinkle some chopped pecans and some additional coconut and sugar on top before baking. Note there is no oil or butter in this recipe, it comes from the coconut, and it is a moist loaf.
Picked up a St. Paddy's Day cookbook at the grocery and this was in it. A twist on the many mock eclair recipes this one with mint flavors and flavored graham crackers. Very pretty and really yummy! Cooking time is chilling time.
Comfort food from Ireland with what else? Pototoes!!! We like our soup a little chunky so I dont use the sieve just do a light mash, and I normally always use chicken stock, and we sprinkle our bowls with anything from bacon to cheese to sour cream.
A great way to use up leftover boiled, baked or mashed potatoes. I love omelets and separately whipping the egg whites makes this light and fluffy despite the inclusion of potatoes. In case you're wondering about taste - imagine a cross between a knish and a souffle. Other herbs or grated onions might be good variations.
This recipe intrigued me with the odd combination of potatoes and apples, then I thought why not we eat applesauce with potato pancakes, so I posted it for the Zaar World Tour. Will try as soon as I get my winter 50 lb bag of potatoes!
Love the funny names that the British have for their foods. This one is really good and rich tasting! I will boil the chicken etc in the evening then chill the broth overnite. Next day I will skim and put it all together and then eat it!! Prep time includes chilling, cooking includes all the simmering.
