Now this is the way to have your Baileys and coffee!  This delicious dessert comes from Clodagh's Irish Kitchen and is easy to prepare.  It is also pleasing to the eye.  If you are a fan of tiramisu or trifles, you will certainly enjoy this Irish-Italian dessert!  You can make this treat in individual portions (as shown by the pictures) or if you prefer, one big beautiful bowl.  Either way, friends and family will love this Irish take on an old Italian classic.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

This recipe calls for raw egg yolks.  If you are concerned about the safety of using raw eggs, please do not make this dessert.

The original recipe called for a 1/2 cup cocoa, I prefer to use about a 1/4 cup cocoa.

The stronger the coffee the better flavor the dessert will be.

If you are looking for a healthier snack choice, these chickpeas will satisfy your cravings for salty snacks such as chips and pretzels.  As a bonus, they supply 5 grams of protein per serving.  The protein makes sure that these chickpeas stick with you so you aren't hungry for longer.  They are more filling than a serving of potato chips.  This recipe comes from Cooking Light magazine.  I love the flavor of these crispy chickpeas.  The fresh parmesan and oregano are a delicious combination!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

Make sure you dry the chickpeas with paper towels.  The drier the chickpeas the crispier the dish is.  You can even let them sit overnight for optimal results.

Total time is 30 minutes.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 ounce finely grated Parmesan cheese (about 2 tablespoons)

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind

  • 1/2 tea...

I made this flavorful dish for the first time last week.  It was so delicious that I had to include the recipe in my blog.  I found this gem in the May 2017 edition of Southern Living Magazine.  The one pound of multicolored sweet peppers really caught my eye.  You see...I have a garden full of sweet peppers, and I am constantly looking for ways to use them in recipes.  This recipe is yummy and also lets me use peppers from my garden.  As a bonus, I also love pasta.  It seemed the perfect recipe for me.  I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do!

Bon Appetit!

I love slow cooker recipes; especially for those busy days where the thought of preparing dinner sounds exhausting.  This one is extra nice, because the prep work is fast and easy.  You can easily throw this together before you go to work or start your day.  I adapted this recipe from the May 2011 edition of Woman's Day Magazine.  I love the versatility of this recipe as well (see tips).  If you make these yummy hoagies, please let me know what you think!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

Sometimes, I do not drain the tomatoes, and I add up to a pound more of the sausages.  If you decide to try this, just make sure you serve it with a slotted spoon.

For those who do not eat pork, I have made this with an Italian poultry sausage.  The results were excellent!

You can also serve this open-faced sandwich style.  Toast thick slices of bread, and place the meat-veggie mixture on the toast.  Top with cheese.

You can use any cheese you desire: asiago, goat cheese, feta, mozzarella...

I use mild Itali...

I have been making this pasta dish for many years.  It has my favorite red meat sauce.  It comes together quickly, but the sauce tastes like I slaved over it all day.  This pasta recipe is one to keep!  The recipe seems to make a lot of sauce for 1 pound of pasta, but believe me, it definitely works!  The spaghetti is flavorful and has an old world Italian flair that I love.  It is a wonderful dinner to prepare for special occasions, but is still simple enough for a weeknight meal too.  If you are looking for something that is fun, easy and delicious, I highly recommend this recipe.  I'll end with a quote by Sophia Loren, "Everything you see, I owe to spaghetti."

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

1.  If you have a large enough pot, this is a great recipe to double.  The sauce freezes well, and you can divide it into freezer bags or containers.  You can defrost the sauce in your refrigerator overnight or in the microwave.  Once defrosted, I...
