If you haven’t noticed by now, I try to balance out the recipes on Yankee Doodle Paddy with some naughty and some nice. I am not a vegan or vegetarian but I do enjoy eating and cooking that way from time to time. I try not to eat too much dairy, but since butter is one of my fav things in life I do allow it, when it is worth it. Well today’s recipe is one of those days! It is the 78th edition of Woman Crush Wednesday and our gorgeous gourmet gals (yes plural) are Martha Swift and Lisa Thomas of Primrose Bakery here in London. Continue reading
I have a recipe to share with you today. It is an easy Brussels Sprout side dish that is so good it will leave you beggin’ for more! But before I get your lips smacking, I have a story to share with you. In fact I’ve wanted to share it for ages but couldn’t decide on a title. One idea was Panhandling (another name for begging). Another was “Are you excited to see me or is that a rifle in the back seat?” But that one sounded too far fetched. But this is a story about begging people for money and the scary situation that led to the rifle incident. Continue reading

I have the best memories of going to the pumpkin patch with my kids when they were little. Picking out the perfect sized pumpkin and then eagerly carving them were all part of the Halloween festivities. Food is always a big part of the tradition, but often it’s not the most healthy. That’s okay to have a treat every now and again. But what if there was a delicious healthy salad that would pump up the jam in your party? This post will introduce you to the newest member of my pumpkin recipe arsenal!
