Whiskey & Marmalade Glazed Corned Beef

I make the same Corned Beef & Cabbage every year. Year after year. It’s that good. But every now and then, I’m up for a bit of a change and this year was it. Even this Grandma wants to be a bit “trendy” once in awhile, if there is such a thing as a “trendy” Corned Beef.

Irish Pub Nachos

Ok, so they’re not Irish and they’re not really Nachos. But what they are is ooey, gooey, cheesy potato deliciousness with the spiciness of nachos. And there’s bacon (or corned beef, if you have some) sprinkled throughout. You might call this an appetizer, but for us it was a fun meal.

The Best Bailey’s Frosting – That really tastes like Bailey’s is in it.

I had so much fun experimenting with Bailey’s frosting – I think I was covered with frosting by the time I was done. I seriously wanted a Bailey’s frosting that actually tasted of Bailey’s and here it is…and it has generous full cup of Bailey’s!

Guinness & Onion Soup with a Cheddar Crouton

I love love love French Onion Soup! It’s a beautiful thing. For St. Patrick’s day, though, I have been dying to try out one of the Guinness Onion Soups I’ve seen floating around. How could I resist, really? Caramelized onions, toasty melty cheese!

Tanya’s Famous Hashbrown Omelette

First, I have to tell you the story about how I found the Hashbrown Omelette, or if you’d like to call it, the omelette of awesome deliciousness. This omelette is a layer of beautifully cooked hashbrowned potatoes topped by a thin layer of egg, cheese, ooey and gooey, & a filling of your choice. Then, the whole works is folded over into a crispy, crunchy, on the outside, cheesy, creamy, on the inside, breakfast.

Reuben Potstickers (Gyoza) with a Cheesy Sriracha Dipping Sauce

First of all, no need for congratulations; I’m not pregnant! If I were, I’d have ice-cream with this. 🙂 I’ll admit, though, this is a decidedly different combination of ingredients, perhaps a bit odd, and it might just cause cravings! Flavorful corned beef, tart sauerkraut, sweet pickle and a touch of cheese all tucked into a crispy, tender pan-fried dumpling. See, nothing is sacred any longer…

Connemara Soup with Bacon or Corned Beef

This is an adaptation of Connemara Soup from the Simon Pearce Restaurant in Vermont. A rich tomato soup flavored with bacon (or as I did today, Corned Beef) and brimming with tomato, potatoes and healthy cabbage. If you’ve made a Corned Beef Dinner, a little left over Corned Beef and the vegetables can be diced up to make this tasty soup. Best of all, you can use some of that broth* from the Corned Beef Dinner, defatted, of course.
