Happy March to you all, Galley Peeps. For most of us in the north parts of the world it’s a month we all look forward to, regardless if we’ve had our last snow fall or not. We know that gradually those dark winter days will turn into days that are longer and longer, warmer and warmer.
I decided to do my March round up a little early because this is a big month around here. Spring. Several birthdays to celebrate including my own…which I try to pretend doesn’t exist but it seems to be arriving faster and faster each year. And it’s the month to put on the green and celebrate your Irish-ness. Plus I started to notice an increase in SSGK (that’s Sea Salt Galley Kat for those who aren’t into acronyms) searches for Irish recipes so I chose the six most popular to date. Just click on the caption below each image for the recipe.
By far, the top of the list is this super rich cake made in my Omnia stove top oven.
A very close second are these fall-off-the-bone tasty ribs, done in the pressure cooker then crisped up on the grill slathered in a sauce to die for.
And who doesn’t like a belly-warming bowl of fish and potatoes swimming in a creamy broth? Don’t forget some generous grinds of fresh pepper to top and some crusty bread to serve.
What separates this next one from an ordinary Shepherd’s Pie is the addition of the heartiness of Guinness beer to the sauce and I Irished it up even more by using my recipe for Colcannon with mashed parsnips to the topping
Another belly-warmer … Dublin Coddle, made with potatoes (of course it’s Irish after all), sausage and carrots. Topped with a sprinkling of sharp Irish cheddar and served with a pint of Guinness and some soda bread on the side, it doesn’t get more Irish than this.
Lastly, it wouldn’t be very Irish of me if I didn’t offer you something to wet your whistle would it? Here’s my dangerously decadent delicious homemade Irish Cream.
