Original Irish Cream
Don't be SILLY and try to make this less fattening or cheap, and then give it a low rating, LOL! If you are going to cheat on the liquor, use YOUR FAVORITE whiskey. And if you prefer a little different flavor, maybe wait to add the vanilla and almond extract, and take a shot of the unfinished mixture, and try adding things to that shot that YOU might like the taste of, and see what you like best in one little shot, before making a batch of it, and then coming here to complain. In my case, I happen to like Canadian Whiskey, ie Seagrams Crown Royal, so I used that for the whiskey... And then, instead of adding vanilla and almond extract, I put in DiSardonno Ameretto until I really liked the flavor instead! OH MY, was that ever delish!!! Trust me, it will go down SOOO smooth when its YOUR favorite flavors :) Try 3 spoonful's in your coffee! And put it into CLEAN bottles, keep it in the fridge, and remember to shake it up before pouring.

Diane's Colcannon
I used 1/2 lb diced ham and pancetta, added a clove of minced garlic, 3/4 tsp of white pepper, 2 tbsp parsley flakes (don't have fresh), to cook with the cabbage, and then added 3 green onions sliced in the last few min. I steamed the potatoes with skins on 30 min, removed the skins and made mashed potatoes, adding 3/4 tsp salt, and then served the cabbage mixture on top of the mashed potatoes. Everyone had 2nds, so in my book, that gets 5 stars

Traditional Pita Breads
I used 2 tbsp olive oil instead of the shortening, and "baked" the pita bread two at a time (to avoid running the oven in the summer), covered in my electric skillet for a couple minutes on each side till they got browned spots. They came out read good and disappeared in a day.
