Corned Beef Hash


Corned Beef! I really love corned beef and we have it at least once every year for St. Patrick's Day, cooked with cabbage, potatoes, onions and carrots my family calls a New England Boiled Dinner.

I have never really figured out why we don't have it more often, because we all love it, but one thing leads to another, and the next thing I know another year has gone by ... isn't it funny how that happens?

Anyway, when we have corned beef that one time every year, I almost always make two. That way I have an extra one to slice for Reuben's or this awesome Corned Beef Hash.

This is a great weekend breakfast treat, and a good one to enjoy for Sunday brunch. Served with a fried egg over top, or scrambled eggs on the side with biscuits, jam and jelly, it's hearty and delicious.

Chocolate Cinnamon Whisky Cake


Chocolate Cinnamon Whisky Cake, let that sink in just a minute. Oh my goodness! Dark, decadent, delicious, rich and moist, it is an amazing cake. This cake received amazing reviews from all my taste testers! It's definitely a "keeper" recipe in our house.

The coffee, black pepper, cloves, and chocolate work well together, then the cinnamon whisky compliments those flavors, elevating it all to a whole new level.

This deeply rich and moist chocolate cake makes it an excellent choice to serve to guests, or simply enjoy with your family.

French Onion Soup Meatballs


My friend, Alice, from Ally's Kitchen, is totally my inspiration for this dish. She recently posted her French Onion Lamb Meatballs, and that got me thinking, what if I made meatballs with ground beef, and added French Onion Soup and cheese to it? Hmmmm?

And so the adventure began! Grass fed beef, some seasonings, French Onion soup, lots of cheese and voila' a new recipe was born. It's delicious, it's cheesy, it's everything I hoped it would be. Better yet, it's quick and easy; simple enough for a weeknight meal, but worthy of serving to guests as well.

Serve it over slices of toasted crusty bread for a take on baked French Onion soup, or top it on noodles, rice or mashed potatoes; the possibilities are endless.

One Pan Roasted Asparagus, Potatoes and Smoked Sausage


Asparagus is my favorite Spring vegetable and guilty pleasure. I love it steamed, grilled, roasted, in Pickled Asparagus, or Asparagus and Tomato Pasta SaladHowever it's prepared I love it. So much so I even Freeze Asparagus for use later in the year. See, I'm addicted to it!

It should come as no surprise to you then when asparagus is fresh and in season here in South Carolina, I stock up on it. I love purchasing it directly from Monetta Asparagus Farm, or at my local farmers markets. So fresh the stalks just snap! It's delicious.

I also really, really love easy, one dish meals, and this one is every bit easy! One dish, a few ingredients, and you have an awesome dinner for yourself and your family.
