I grew up loving Irish Potatoes. These heavenly confections of delight only came around, once a year. Around St. Patrick’s Day. Recently, I learned that Irish Potatoes originated in Philadelphia! Evidently, some sweet baker came up with the concoction and named them Irish potatoes. Not because they were made with potatoes. But, because they looked like potatoes!
Even though I don’t have a lick of Irish in me, I enjoy St. Patrick’s Day. I like making Irish dishes such as Irish stew and Corned beef and cabbage, at least once a year. But, this year I did something different. I used my Instant Pot to make Corned Beef & Cabbage. It came out so well, I had to share the recipe with you!
Last night, I made a delicious pork loin stuffed with creamy goodness. Best part? Aside from it being one of Scott’s new favorites. (That’s a feat, in and of itself.) This recipe is low-carb and keto friendly!
Scott and I will most likely be spending Valentine’s Day, at home. It’s easier with Baby Blue, and we want to include him, for sure! I’ll be making something very special. Like this Prosciutto Wrapped Stuffed Chicken! I was inspired by Chef John. (You can see his original recipe, here.) I made it this week, my own way, and I wouldn’t change a thing!
I’ve been enjoying Valentine’s Day, ever since I was a little girl. Back then, I loved making cards and passing out treats to my classmates and teachers. It was simple fun, and it made me happy to share even the littlest thing with others.
When I first heard about a “Galentine’s Day Part”, I thought it was so silly or merely reserved for single women. But, then I remembered something. Valentine’s Day is not just for lovers! It’s a day to spend with those you love! Galentine’s Day (official or not) can be the perfect excuse to gather the friends you love and do something special. And, fun!
In today’s post, I’m going to share just how easy it is to throw something together. Without spending a lot of time or money! Read on…
It’s Super Bowl LIII on Sunday! I’m still sad that the Eagles are not going to be playing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the game! We are hosting friends and family. (Honestly? If the Eagles were playing, I wouldn’t host anyone. Because, I’d be anti-social and glued to the TV. LOL!) Anyway, I made these buffalo chicken fingers last weekend, and they were a huge hit! I highly recommend you try these, immediately if not sooner!
Baby Blue is now fifteen months old! And that’s how long it’s taken to complete his bedroom makeover. As you may recall, Scott and I have done quite a few bedroom makeovers throughout the past five years. (Six makeovers for two bedrooms. But, who’s counting!) So, I guess you can say we’re slowing down a bit. However, Baby Blue finally has his very own, little boy bedroom. With a transportation theme! From firetrucks to motorcycles. Dump-trucks, trains, race cars, and seaplanes. It’s super fitting, since Baby Blue is all about, “Go! Go! Go!”
We’ve been eating a lot of new dishes at The House on High Street, lately! I’ve been experimenting with new ingredients in an attempt to replace a few that I haven’t been too happy with.
Anyway, it’s been so cold outside! I’ve been craving hot soup with a lot of flavor and just enough spice. I decided to experiment with essential Chinese Food ingredients because I just love that ginger/soy/sesame/chili sauce flavor! And, come on now. Who doesn’t love Noodle Soup?
The Holidays may be over, but Scott and I are still hosting gatherings at The House on High Street. On Sunday, we had our neighbors over for the Eagles’ Game. (They won!) Even though we typically serve burgers, wings, and/or pizza for a football gathering, I wanted to make something that was healthy and delicious! So, I put together the perfect Crudité platter! If you haven’t made one before, I have such good news for you. It’s super easy. And, fun! And, so worth making because it’s delicious and healthy.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. So they say. But, the holidays can be stressful and overwhelming, to say the least. There’s so much to do, and it goes by so fast. Scott and I celebrate Christmas and Hannukah, along with several birthdays, during the month of December. That makes the holiday season even more overwhelming. And expensive, I might add. I hate to miss out on any of the good stuff (especially the real meaning of Christmas), but by the time I get everything off of my list, Christmas is practically over.
