Very Berry Summer Cake

     This cornmeal cake is currently my go-to summer dessert. The original recipe suggested a fruit and wine syrupy topping, but it also works deliciously as an upside-down cake with summer berries on the bottom. Serve it for at teatime with whipped cream, a dollop of tangy crème fraiche, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You’ll find more teatime recipes in my Teatime in…See More

Rhubarb's Here!

     Rhubarb makes only a brief appearance each spring, but because of its tart, bitter flavor, it makes a big impression. Rarely eaten on its own, it’s generally paired with a sweet fruit, especially berries, to balance the flavor. Rhubarb wasn’t a popular ingredient until the eighteenth century, when sugar became a more common ingredient in baking, and now you find it…See More

Strawberry Season Has Arrived

          Once upon a time in Ireland — at least at the time I made my first trip in 1984, and even a decade later — a salad was not a salad as we know it today: think a few leaves of iceberg and a slice or two of tomato. Perfectly acceptable at the time, but three decades later you’ll find that no two salads are created equal. And when strawberry season arrives, you’ll…See More

CHOCOLATE + WHISKEY + CARAMEL = EASTER

    Irish whiskey is a popular ingredient in desserts, where its distinctive taste complements a wide range of flavors. The combination of whiskey and chocolate is especially delicious, and when caramel and nuts are added (you can substitute walnuts, if you wish), this tart simply screams “Easter.” Reminiscent of a Southern pecan pie, it’s delicious topped with vanilla…See More

Oh-So-Easy Oatmeal Crumble

If you love a bowl of oatmeal topped with fruit for breakfast, you’ll love this crumble that puts the fruit on the bottom and the oats on top. A warm fruity crumble is always a welcome dessert, and this one comes with a little kick from crystallized ginger. You’ll find recipes like this in my cookbook Favorite Flavors of Ireland. To order a signed copy, visit…See More
