This flavorful bisque is perfect for warming you during a cold winter. It also would be great as an appetizer for your Christmas or New Year's Eve celebration. A bisque is a type of creamy soup that is made with shellfish. This bisque uses shrimp as the shellfish component. The other main component of this seafood bisque is the cod. I got this wonderful recipe from Betty Crocker's 2004 Holiday publication, and it is definitely a keeper! The added basil pesto is what mak
These potatoes are an absolute favorite among my family and friends! They are the perfect mashed potatoes for the Christmas holidays. If you love garlic, this is most definitely the dish for you. The recipe calls for garlic herb butter - which means that it is no more extra work than your usual mashed potatoes. There is no messing with garlic cloves, and extra steps as the butter is all that's needed. This butter really does make these mashed potatoes shine. Rich and cr
It's strawberry season, and I can't think of a better way to enjoy these scrumptious berries than in a pie. This pie is an absolute favorite among my family, and I guarantee that if you love strawberries, you will have a difficult time only eating one slice. This dessert is unforgettable - with whole strawberries placed on top of a sweet cream filling and a homemade strawberry glaze poured over the pie. Give this pie of the month a try! It really is amazing. Bon Appetit!
Here is another great recipe from Clodagh's Irish Kitchen by Clodagh McKenna. I have been mashing potatoes for over twenty-five years, and I thought my potatoes were pretty good. That was until I tried these creamed potatoes! The ingredients are simple, but the procedure is what makes these potatoes "creamy". Check out this recipe and taste these creamy mashed potatoes for yourself! Bon Appetit! Ingredients: 2 1/4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes 1/3 cup warm milk 1/4 teaspoon
The Irish theme continues with this amazing recipe from Clodagh's Irish Kitchen cookbook. The recipe starts the cooking process on the stovetop (to ensure the chicken skin gets 'crisp') and finishes cooking in the oven. The sauce is lovely with a hint of tarragon and really compliments the chicken. This creamy Irish whiskey sauce is thin, but the mushrooms give the sauce more substance. I found this recipe easy to prepare and elegant to serve! Also, it goes great with th
It's Valentines Day, and here is my gift of love to you - the recipe for a fantastic Chocolate Cream Pie. You're welcome. Seriously, this pie is absolutely the best chocolate pie that I and my family have had so far. In fact, I have never been a fan of chocolate cream pie, until I came across this recipe. As a bonus, it is easy to make too! The filling makes a rich chocolate pudding. This pudding is so yummy that it is very hard to resist. I'm sure you will love this p
Super bowl Sunday is fast approaching, and it is time for chowing down on game food. When I think of game food, I usually think bacon! This recipe is fast and easy to make, and your family and friends will love it. I know mine do. If that isn't enough for you, it also has bacon! This party food will be a hit on game day (or on any day that you have company). While it may be a cold day on Super bowl Sunday, this dip is served warm out of your oven. So dig in and may you
This casserole tastes rich, creamy, and decadent. In reality, it is light in calories and fat. A few years ago, I found this recipe in a Feb. 2010, Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Publications magazine, titled "One-pan recipes". The original recipe needed a little flavor boost, so I modified the recipe. I really like the end result! I hope you like it too if you decide to try it. It is yummy and great for company. I also love that I can make this dish a day a
