Pork & Potato Pasties

Pork & Potato Pasties

Yesterday as we were pulling out all the christmas decorations to decorate for christmas, I stumbled upon an old christmas cooking magazine that contains some of my favorite English recipes on earth!! A couple of years back I made a pork and potato roll from it, and it was so divine, I decided to make it again this year– but with a little twist– Cornish Pasty style! The salty, tangy pork, potato and onion mixture inside the warm, flaky puff pastry was the perfect thing for a cold, cosy autumn day inside with the family, who mostly all have rotten colds! This recipe was so quick, easy and delicious, i’ll definitely be keeping it close by this season, and i’m also super excited to share lots more delicious English recipes! So keep posted, and as always, enjoy this recipe!

Gingered Coconut Carrot Soup

Gingered Coconut Carrot Soup

Carrots are something that I always have on hand — somehow in such abundance that I never know what to do with them, other than feed them to our tiny little hamster, and recently a little bunny that has been hopping all around our yard {the kids go out and feed him, they’re convinced he’s the easter bunny!} Even trying to pawn off carrots on our fury little friends, we still have crazy amounts sitting in our fridge… so I thought i’d use half to make a delicious carrot cake for easter this week, and the other half to make this delicious carrot soup.

St. Patty’s Style Vegetable Soup

I have been on a soup kick lately, so when I saw the idea for an Irish-flag inspired carrot and pea soup, I was all over it for St. Patty’s! It looks pretty, tastes amazing, and is SO healthy! I hope you guys enjoy!

Corned Beef with Pineapple-Apricot Glaze

Corned Beef with Pineapple-Apricot Glaze

This time last year I made my first ever corned beef brisket, which was to die for delicious, so when the supermarket shelves started stocking them again this month, I couldn’t wait to make another! I wanted to be a little more creative with this corned beef recipe, but also do something kind of traditional–so I decided to make a sweet glaze, and serve it with a classic irish colcannon.  This recipe might sound a little weird, but it’s just one you’re going to have to trust me on, because it is SO divine! In fact, this is definitely one of the best meals I have cooked since I can remember. I hope you guys love it, and that you have a fantastic St. Patrick’s day today!

Colcannon

Colcannon

I’ve been having fun making some “green” recipes this week in honor of St. Patrick’s day, but I also wanted to try making something that was traditionally Irish– so I thought i’d have a go at making Colcannon for the first time ever. It’s basically just mashed potato with kale or cabbage mixed in — but I was kind of taken aback by how something so simplistic could be so clever, and SO delicious. You can also add bacon, but since I wanted to serve it with Corned Beef, I thought that would be a lot of salty meat, and a little too heavy on the calories, so I kept this recipe light, and creamy, and it complimented the corned beef perfectly! I really can’t believe I have never tried this before, but I can’t wait to make it every St. patrick’s!
