Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

I know it is only mid November, and for my US friends we still have Thanksgiving coming in a couple of weeks. But over here in the UK and in my soul home Ireland, it is already full Christmas mode!  People panicking about the Christmas gift list! Well I have a solution! Homemade foodie gifts! And today’s Woman Crush Wednesday is going to sort us out with a delish recipe.  Once baked these festive treats can be wrapped up super pretty.  Helen Goh is today’s gorgeous gourmet gal who has recently published her first book, Sweet, with one of my all time fav chefs, Yotam Ottolenghi. The book is drool worthy, and the Pecan Snowballs are perfect for the season that is in it! Continue reading

Welcome back to Woman Crush Wednesday!

Her prolific posts of incredible sweet and savory foods have ignited flames in the hearts of home cooks from coast to coast! Continue reading

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  Or as we jokingly call it “Happy-ster”.  That’s because  after moving to Ireland we called Hubby’s mom on Skype to wish her a Happy Easter.  However, with the poor connection all she could hear was  Happy –ster!  Since we will hopefully be climbing Croagh Patrick this weekend I am sure that at the top of the Holy Mountain in the West of Ireland, it’s likely we won’t have the best connection either. So unless you hear from me, this will be your official holiday greeting!  Continue reading

Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

Though today is Wednesday, my favorite day of the week, it feels more like a Monday.  Here in the U.K. it’s the dreaded first day back to work after the Christmas holidays.  But the minute I start my Woman Crush Wednesday cooking tutorial on Snapchat (username blissbakery) all that will change. I will bust out some singing (off key) and another fabulous recipe from a female foodie. And for the last WCW of 2016 I’ve got a winner! Continue reading
