Cannelloni al forno

Mmmm … pasta, I love it. Simple, versatile and it fills you up. Functional and economical, yes, but that doesn’t mean you sacrifice flavour. Pasta served with butter is just as satisfying. Today I am making one of my favourite baked pasta dishes which is also vegetarian friendly – stuffed cannelloni with a ricotta and spinach filling. I have made this many times in the past and it never disappoints … so I am putting this up on the blog in the hope that you try it as well.

Beef Stroganoff

Winter has come and gone. We now wait in anticipation for spring to show its lovely face, bringing with it rays of much needed sunshine and crisp morning air. The chills still linger on however, so one must still nourish the soul with creamy comforts whenever one is able to indulge. This is my first time making Beef Stroganoff and it came out amazing. Super easy, super tasty.

Creamy Spinach and Shrimp Fettuccine

I always preferred pasta in cream sauces to those made with red sauce. Lots of garlic and a splash of cream makes for a lovely bowl of comfort on a cold winters day … just don’t forget the grated cheese and smokey bacon bits as well. Mmm, so good! This dish is pretty simple to make and will be done in about 30-mins from start to finish.

Clementine Baked Cheesecake.

Christmas is once again upon us … my favourite time of year. ‘Tis the season for cookies and crackers, of puddings and Christmas presents. However, for some the thought of sitting down to Christmas dinner with the prospect of having traditional pudding for afters is not such a holiday treat. Here is an alternative that will please all those fussy festive diners.

Chocolate Biscotti Mousse

Wow, my first trip to the USA and I actually had time to make dessert and feature a new blog post – that’s never happened before. Well the month long holiday has well and truly come to an end. We have packed up and left New York and arrived home today. It is approximately 3 am and I am wide awake after having slept significantly in the afternoon. So screwed. Write blog post. Enjoy.

Team Pizza Weekend – USA 2016

The round up of a very epic weekend in Kenosha at a gorgeous lakeside property on the shores of Lake Michigan. This would be our 4th EVE event and this time it is to meet up with all the American gamers – none of the Canadians made it, which is unfortunate. But we still had an awesome weekend and I would do it all over again if I could.

Lemon Blueberry Streusel Cake

Been meaning to do this for a while now, one of those tray-bakes that end up being cut into delightful squares and stacked on top of each other. Tray-bakes are also fun and easy to do, with a million varieties just waiting to be explored. Today I made my first which was meant for a tea party I was meant to attend.

UNITED STATES of AMERICA!!

It was only a matter of time until this trip had to happen. I mean, we are as far west as we can go in Europe, we can almost smell America from here. Super excited about this trip as it will be my first ever visit state-side, and R. will be able to do his thing and meet up with more EVE buddies along the way. Trip is still in the planning stages, so here is where we are at for now.

Christmas and New Year mash up : Ireland 2016

So, looks like 2016 has arrived and I have been missing from the blogoshpere for almost a year. Wow, where did time go? What have I been up to? Well in a pinch, I have been adjusting to new life in Ireland and to the new job, new house, pretty much new everything. Then the parents came for a visit and so it was a pretty packed few months to say the least. Here is a snippet of what we got up to during my hiatus. It’s good to be back tho.

Yupp, I did it … I have made a warming chicken, mushroom and leek casserole in the dead of summer, and I have no regrets. Welcome to Ireland, where we seem to have waltzed from spring directly into autumn this year.
