Yummy Irish Potato Candy!!
Me & Skylar
About this Cook
Hmm. Where to I start??? I'm a single Mom to the best 4yo little girl a Mommy could ask for, Skylar Elise. When I'm not running around from the park to dance lessons with my bella, I'm pretty laid back. Nothing like reading a good book with your feet up after a long day.
My favorite things to cook
I've been told I'm a pretty good baker. My daughter's pre-school automatically signs me up for dessert every time they have some sort of function there.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies with my step-dad. They are delish and will forever be a favorite in my family. Also, just generally being around my family on any given holiday. I'm happy to say we are all pretty close knit. =)
My cooking tragedies
Eh. I'm kind of a clutz sometimes. The only thing that comes to mind is after making steak on the grill a few years ago on a sweltering summer day with my step-dad. We come in the house and he tells me to "grab the A-1" out of the fridge. Well the A-1 never made it to the table. I dropped it on its lid and when I say it went EVERYWHERE, I mean EVERYWHERE. From the ceiling to the floor and walls and curtains, everthing was covered. Whoops!

Gnocchi Bake
This recipe was quick, easy and delicious. I did tweak it a tiny bit by adding fresh garlic to the sausage as I fried it, as well as fresh red pepper flakes. So good. Will definitely make again on a cold winter night. Very filling too!

Irish Potato Candy
I made these for my daughters heritage day at her pre-school. We're Irish and proud! The whole school loved them. In my opinion, they taste even better then the ones sold in stores. Great recipe!
