I gotta tell ya about this recipe, an old family favorite, the Beef Guinness Stew from Simon Pearce. I pulled this recipe ages ago from either Bon Appetit or Gourmet; I think it might have been a write-in request and it’s been a St. Paddy’s Day celebration dinner and family fave off and on ever since.
Hey, we’ve got some scary stuff going on and more to come! Have you guys been seeing some crazy lists out there about what & how much food to have on hand for when you’ve caught the fast-spreading Coronavirus? (Last month the CDC basically said it’s not IF you’ll get coronavirus, it’s When, although more conservative estimates place the number of us that will fall ill at up to 70 percent.) There are lots of practical things to do to get ready for the coronavirus if you haven’t already but start Stocking Your Pantry for Coronavirus – and do it now.
If you, like me, are on a budget, or even living paycheck to paycheck, or even if you’re just overwhelmed by it all, it can be really frustrating to think about preparing. Hey, I’m already past my spending limits, and I’m paying close attention to what I need to buy to ride out a possible crisis. And preparing for it isn’t just about toilet paper (there WILL be more) and bottled water.
Sometimes I wish I were a sample person at Costco, except I’d sneak out samples of this Peruvian Chicken with Green Sauce instead of whatever was supposed to be coming out of my little oven. It’s just that I wish everyone could at least have a taste of it! But then, if you make this, you can!
It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I love Bailey’s Irish Cream. Well actually, make that any Irish Cream because I sometimes buy the less expensive versions. For years, though (make that decades) I’ve been making my own Homemade Baileys Irish Cream.
I love making greens of any kind in my Instant Pot, but the payoff in time is pretty great with these Classic Instant Pot Southern Collard Greens that take so much time and attention and love on the stovetop.
