Giving Thanks With Cranberry-Walnut Chutney!

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, we give thanks, hopefully, for our many blessings, family, and friends. As we gather around the holiday table, with the centerpiece being that luscious big bird, don’t forget the cranberries — sauce, relish, or this fruity chutney — the perfect sweet-tart complement. You’ll find this and other recipes for holiday sides in my newest…See More

Cheers to the Festive Season!

With Thanksgiving on the horizon and Christmas right behind, I bet you’ve noticed that panettone is starting to make its annual appearance. Even devoted Irish cooks have discovered this rich Italian Christmas cake that’s sold in markets and specialty stores throughout the festive season. The cake, which comes from the northern Italian city of Milan and whose name…See More

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

Always the wit! Yes, snowing like hell here so I guess I'm one up on you since you only have wind. Stay warm and dry if you can. Cheers.
