This no rise soda bread is the bomb!!
While my Corned Beef and Cabbage slow cooked in the pot I took advantage of my second slow cooker being out and made this dough.
Both dishes were done at the same time.
While grandpa picked up the birthday girl at the bus stop I had enough time to cool the brownies she requested.
I used some leftover white chocolate chips and some peanut butter chips to sprinkle on top.
With all this deliciousness and aromas, no one noticed we forgot the #9 birthday candle.
I want to thank my daughter-in-law working together with me to get the dinner done on time.
Happy Birthday my grown up grand.
Being half Irish as well as half Italian I learned to love food at a young age.
My family loved Corned Beef and Cabbage but I never made it until my daughter-in-law had used the crock pot.
I was no longer intimidated to try the recipe. The only real prep was quartering the cabbage. And she did that part since I suffer from arthritis.
I couldn’t believe how well the dinner turned out. So we decided to add another touch and make the Slow Cooker Irish Soda Bread with Raisins.
Amy kneaded the dough while I set the table.
The bread was a bit dry for my taste but the family loved it!
I have made this bread a few more times and have come to love it.
I have been in such a bbq frenzy lately and I just can’t get enough.
I know my sugar level hates me, but I am balancing how much and when I partake.
If anyone knows of a diabetic approved way to satisfy this craving please let me know.
I saw this BBQ Brisket Shepherds Pie at a local restaurant and just couldn’t wait to find a good recipe.
Most of the ingredients list are spices so don’t let that put you off.
This is a GREAT dish to make on that lazy weekend and really is becoming one of my comfort foods.
No more dry corned beef!
Cook this in your slow cooker all day and you’re guaranteed success!
Corned Beef and Cabbage is a favorite in our home on St. Patrick’s Day.
There is nothing better than throwing a few ingredients into the crock pot and smelling it cooking all day.
Even if you are a working mom, coming home to a house smelling of a tasty dinner ready to serve your family is a treat all on its own!
My Husband just loves cabbage! He will eat it in any form or recipe.
i have only ever liked my cabbage in Cole Slaw.
Well in my home that was not to last long.
I made Corned Beef and Cabbage for the first time after my dughter-in-law used this Crock Pot recipe.
I was no longer intimidated to try making it.
The hardest part was cutting the head of cabbage.
The longer the meal cooked the stronger the aroma filled my kitchen.
And the more I fell in love with this dish.
The recipe couldn’t be simpler.
It’s now Crocktober season. I usually use my Crock Pot for things like chili, braised chicken, and pulled pork. I totally understand the “set it and forget it” appeal of a slow cooker. But some people often take that mentality too literally and don’t understand what could be a deliciously low-and-slow-cooked meal. I am writing this tongue in cheek article on how to avoid making mistakes and instead produce tender, delicious meat and absolutely no mushy vegetables. Don’t ignore these tips!
