Irish Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
I've said it before and it still holds true: this recipe is my gold standard for Irish stew. I made it for St. Patrick's Day dinner this weekend, and my family ate every bit--even the parsnips. Of course, I didn't tell them about the parsnips until later. Now they know they like 'em! Just a couple of notes: next time I'll cook a big chunk of parsnip and carrot with the lamb, but I'll add fresh parsnip and carrot later on so they won't disintegrate. Also, I sear the meat in batches and skim the stew as it simmers. Thanks for a great recipe, Ita!

Irish Potato Farls

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
We had these with the Ulster Fry-Up, and although I had told myself beforehand that I'd have only one wedge, I ate so many that I'd hate to admit to the actual count. Fantastic!

Mojito

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
This is now my Mojito. You can have some too. You're welcome. Useful tip--because there should be one--this tastes best when served very cold. Lukewarm Mojito bad. Ice cold Mojito good.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
A combination of flavors so deliciously right it makes me crazy to think I've lived this long without experiencing it before now. Better late than never. Thank you for this beautiful, beautiful soup!

Ferg's Ulster Fry-up

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
When this breakfast started frying up, the crowds came running. Then they started jostling each other to get to the goods. Everything looked, smelled, and tasted sooooo amazing! I didn't wash it down with a pint of Guiness...an excellent coffee had to do. Could I eat this every day? Sure! But I'd have fewer days in the long run, and I'd have to run 10 miles a day to work off the calories. It will have to be a once-in-a-while treat. But what a treat!

Mojo Grilling Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
I can't imagine how this recipe could be any better. Soak a gnarly slab of flank steak in it overnight, slap that bad boy on the grill, and pour yourself a Mojito, baby!

Perfect Pear Brandy Sidecar

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
This smoothed the jagged edge off a particularly rough week and restored a sense of general benevolence. Now if only it counted towards my goal of five fruit and veg per day. *Sigh*

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
Here's how easy this is to throw together. Sister calls to see if she can borrow camping gear. No problem. C'mon by. Hang up phone. Heat oven. Stir batter. Slice fruit. Assemble and pop into oven. One hour later I'm dishing it up over ice cream with my sister. She's happy. I'm happy. You can be happy, too.

Minnesota Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Here's how much my family liked this salad. My son didn't touch the portion on his plate until I urged him to have a bite. So he did. "Oh," he said after his first bite. "OH!" he said after his second bite. "This is really good!" he said, as he shoveled broccoli salad into his mouth. "Can I have some more?" he said. My husband ate two helpings of salad and said things like, "So is this the official Minnesota State Dish?" So yes, this is a winner. Thanks for the recipe!

Allow me to translate: this is an authentic taste of real Hawai'i, just like Momma used to make. Puts a tear in my eye. Mahalo Auntie May!

Irish Champ

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Rich, creamy, and so delicious! Exactly right for our St. Patrick's Day dinners. I've served this with lamb stew, with corned beef and cabbage, and most recently with roasted salmon. I use cream instead of milk (oh my heart) and I let the scallions and cream seethe gently until the scallions soften. Comfort food with an Irish accent indeed!

Chimichurri Sauce for Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
From now on, everything I eat will have a dab of this chimichurri sauce on it. Even ice cream. I kid. No, seriously. I just had it on grilled shrimp. Just now. Sorry - none left for you. But it was oh my god good. Make some and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Bob's Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
Seriously, this is the real deal. Just the way Mom used to make it when we lived in Japan. Don't try to substitute dried ginger because it just doesn't give you that bright hit of fresh ginger flavor. And when you do the cornstarch thickener, make sure your water is cold when you mix it in. Thanks for a good recipe, Bob!

Chutney with Mint

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I needed to find a way to use up the mint that's taking over my garden, and while this put only a tiny dent in the crop, it was so delicious I'll make it again and again. I served it with curried chicken kabobs one night, grilled shrimp another night, and as a flavor agent on potroast sandwiches. It's amazing, versatile stuff. Thanks for the recipe!

Lavender Tea Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Fragrant, lovely, slightly dense tea bread. I made it with fresh lavender from my garden, which added another reason to enjoy this recipe. The next time I make this, I'll reduce the amount of lavender to 2 tablespoons because it is possible to have too much of a good thing. I also glazed my loaf with confectioners' sugar mixed with freshly squeezed lime juice. Heavenly.

Hunza Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
My friend the baking queen suggested I use this recipe to make hot cross buns this Easter. She also suggested icing them with a simple mixture of powdered sugar and freshly squeezed orange juice. So I did. My son said they were like eating pillows. I'm sure he meant warm, sweet pillows stuffed with currants. Because that's what I'M talking about! Just a note: I portioned the dough into 2-oz rolls, brushed them with an egg wash, and baked them for 20 minutes @ 350 degrees F. Perfect!

Knudson's Knasty Habit

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Knothing knasty about it. This pleasing little cocktail was tart and refreshing, sort of like Lorem himself. Knudson seemed to enjoy it, too.

Pisco Sour

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
Sublime attitude adjustment, and not a moment too soon. Perfectly balanced, with a pleasingly bitter finish. Sort of like a David Sedaris essay.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Is it authentically Irish? Who cares? It's authentically delicious and very easy to make. I used currents instead of raisins because that's what I had, and baked it in a buttered cake pan lined on the bottom with parchment paper. Will I wait until next St. Patrick's Day to make this again? Heck, I'm not sure I can wait until next week!
