Dublin Coddle, an Irish Stew

Dublin Coddle, an Irish Stew

| March 12, 2014 | 0 Comments

This recipe for a classic Irish stew called Dublin Coddle is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. This was created for my client Jones Dairy Farm, but all opinions are my own. When you shop at warehouse clubs like Costco or BJs, the momentum of the store has a funny way of making you feel like […]

Broccoli Cheddar Soup fans will devour this easy recipe made in about 10 minutes using a high speed blender. Last night, I returned from a weekend trip with one of my favorite clients (more on that later this week!) and all I could think about was climbing into my own bed. There’s something about the […]

This post about an Easy Chicken-Cilantro Soup is sponsored by the ADA in conjunction with Kitchen PLAY.   A few weeks ago, one of my college friends came to visit. Over the course of the day, we got coffees, had lunch and caught up on life. One thing she told me surprised me though: my […]

Our local farmers market opened for the season yesterday (finally!). It used to be an all-organic market that was held just down the street from me. Just minutes away, it was tucked away in the parking lot of a local church. Then it moved a little downtown then a little across town. Throw in a […]

Once upon a time, I was a brooding teenage vegetarian who wrote way too much dark poetry. I wrote short stories too, but it was poetry that I would escape to when I needed to process whatever high school drama had me all twisty-turvy. And whilst being a brooding teenage vegetarian, my parents were sweet […]

I wish I could gaze into a crystal ball and see the future, perhaps six months from now. I wish I could see that the progress we’ve made means something and our efforts — the talking, the patience, the healing books and the one-footstep-in-front-of-another philosophy — is working and will land our family and community […]

This soup is five years in the making. No, really. I created and tested the initial recipe five years ago, and then it wasn’t published. It needed something to polish it off — something to take it from good to great. That yogurt drizzle?  Totally did it. Let me back up a little bit. Five […]

A little over a year ago, Shawn, the kids and several of our friends were on the Cape (Cape Cod, that is) for a wedding. One evening, we got takeout from a little place in Orleans, Massachusetts called Sir Crickets. We all ordered something different — fried clams, fried oysters (mmm!), clam chowder, fish and […]

When you plan your meals ahead of time, the evening goes much smoother. It becomes simpler to just finish up whatever you need to (work, laundry, whatever) and then move into a speedy dinner prep. Unfortunately, I fell back into bad habits recently and wasn’t planning dinners. Heck, I wasn’t even thinking about dinner … […]

Last weekend, I was thinking up new recipes to work on when this idea for a veggie-filled chili came to mind. I’d almost call it a girl’s chili, but I truly hate when people refer to certain dishes as “man food,” so I surely shouldn’t be hypocritical and call this “girl food.” It’s anyone who […]
