Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad

Potato salad with crunch

Posted on August 05, 2016

You know, some of my best recipes come from somehow messing up. Getting the wrong ingredient, not having all of the ingredients, or some other such mishap. That’s how Fully Loaded, Crispy, Potato Salad came about. I realized that I only had baking potatoes when my husband had a hankering for potato salad one evening. I figured everything would be alright, so I proceeded as normal. I peeled, sliced, and boiled, but I wound up overcooking the potatoes. To save things, I decided to make them crispy potatoes. After that decision, I wound up undercooking the eggs too! This was fine with me, but definitely not in accordance with the way you make potato salad. As I see these ingredients coming together I decided to roll with it. What’s better with eggs than bacon? I was also using baking potatoes, so under all that crunchy outside was a light and fluffy inside, another perfect place to put bacon. When all was said and done, it was like eating forkfuls of baked potato and breakfast wrapped into one, delicious, summery, side dish. It was amazing.

Hassleback Style Garlic Bread

Hassleback Style Garlic Bread

On COBS Bread Sunflower Flax Sourdough

Posted on July 27, 2016
There is nothing better than a loaf of fresh bread. Well…. Okay garlic bread made from a loaf of fresh bread could tie for the top spot of nothing-better-ness. That’s why I made Hassleback Style Garlic Bread On COBS Bread Sunflower Flax Sourdough. The bread was super fresh and smelled soooo good! It was all I could do not to go all “my precious” on it. I did wind up sharing the bread with other people at dinner, much to my chagrin. Though, they did enjoy it, so I guess that makes up for having to share.

Gourmet Steak Pizza

Gourmet Steak Pizza

on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia

Posted on June 15, 2016
If you’re creative enough just about anything can become pizza. Gourmet Steak Pizza on Cheese, Herb & Garlic Mini Focaccia proves that. I used very fresh ingredients for this recipe, and you can taste the difference. The tomatoes served as the sauce instead of using a traditional tomato sauce. I did this because I didn’t want to top the cheesy goodness of the fresh herbed focaccia with anything that would mask its delicious flavor. Instead, I enhanced the delicate herb and cheese flavor by adding succulent steak slices and red onion.

Horseradish Potato Salad

Horseradish Potato Salad

Perfect potato salad with a kick

Posted on May 10, 2016
Horseradish Potato Salad is the perfect creamy potato salad with one heck of a kick. Craving potato salad one evening, I found that I didn't have all of the proper ingredients for traditional potato salad. I substituted cabbage for celery, but was running out of mayonnaise. Since I had some horseradish mayonnaise kicking about, I thought “why not?”. Turns out that it was the right decision indeed. You have to be careful when adding horseradish to things. It will clear your sinuses. If you love hot stuff, kick things up a notch with extra horseradish. Pair this side dish with sweet and sticky ribs or wings, and you will have the quintessential barbecue meal. Perfect for #BarbecueMonth.

Grilled Rice Balls

Yaki Onigiri is a very popular snack or takeout food made from rice formed into triangle or cylinder shapes, served wrapped with nori (seaweed) paper. Yaki means grilled or cooked To celebrate Rice Ball day on April 19th, I needed to try my hand at such a popular dish. They turned out fantastic, and I quickly got a handle on forming the sticky rice into a shape that resembled the pictures of Onigiri that I have seen. Traditionally Onigiri is stuffed with pickles or other sour things like pickled Umeboshi (Japanese salt plums), salted salmon, kombu (pickled seaweed), pickled tuna flakes, or salted Pollock. Feel free to substitute any of these for the chicken if you want to go super traditional.

Irish Potato Farl

Irish Potato Farl

Also known as Potato Bread

Posted on March 17, 2016

Irish Potato Farl is a quick, flat bread made with leftover mashed potatoes. Sometimes just fried up and eaten with butter as a snack, it is also served with a full Irish breakfast called an Ulster Fry, along with baked beans, tomatoes, sausage, bacon, black and white pudding.

Funnily enough, I never tried to make this because I was afraid I would mess it up. I had an Irish great grandmother who would make it by hand for the family, then my wonderful grandmother started making it too, but it always seemed to be magical and secret. Until I finally learned that my grandmother at least was using the food processor. So I decided that this St. Patrick’s Day I should grill some up.

Posted on March 10, 2016
I was at a complete loss as to what I should make for supper one night. I was hungry, alone, and it was after 8 pm. I hadn’t pulled anything out to defrost, and driving to a takeout joint seemed like so much work. Then; a shining light from the freezer. Angels sang and inspiration patted me on the back. Super Perogies With Cheese & Chives was born.
