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.

Spiced Vanilla Flan & Brandied Sultanas

I saw this recipe by accident one day while randomly flipping the pages of an Italian cookbook somewhere in Co Roscommin. The idea was to recreate the look but with a flavour variation, in this instance I made mine a spiced vanilla version with some punchy sultanas that have been steeped in brandy and golden syrup for over a week.

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.

America – On the road for 30 days (Part III)

Wow, 30 days is almost up. We have already spent three weeks in America, two of those have been spent on the road visiting places and friends along the way, staying at random roadside motels and sometimes with obliging friends/family. Lakeside weekend with the EVE boys went really well and now we head east and north into Canada … our final leg of this holiday before turning back down south through New England and finishing up back in New York. It will be a sad day indeed when we have to leave all this behind but we will take with us many pictures (oh God to I have a lot of pictures!) and a whole lot more memories, ones which will be with me forever and ever. It has been one hell of a trip and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

America – On the road for 30 days (Part II)

Arrived in Raleigh, North Carolina and had a wonderful time meeting new friends and chowing down on some serious Carolinian barbecue. After two days we are back on the road heading further west towards Nashville, Tennessee. But before we do we spend an entire day driving through Cherokee Indian Reservation and up into the Great Smoky Mountains – America’s favourite and most visited national park. Along the way there is a bit of drama and once in Nashville we have one of the best dinner experiences of the entire trip, all thanks to a guy we know as Ted.

America – On the road for 30 days (Part I)

Having spent 5 whole days soaking in the atmosphere of NYC we pick up our rental SUV and head south on a roadtrip through some of America’s most iconic national parks and visit some of the famous historic monuments. I travel with a food list and while on the road I am always on the look out for food that’s on that list so I can tick them off. From here we make a few overnight pit stops at roadside motels and finish off with a proper 2-night stay in an Airbnb rental in Raleigh, N.C.

I Heart America – Five days in New York

The journey began here … my maiden visit to the USA and it was everything I had hoped for and more. We spent a month driving around the northeast portion of the map and finished off in Canada to catch the leaves in all their autumnal glory. This trip has been amazing and I have definitely fallen in love with America, the land of the free.

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.
