I’m gonna be honest with you. Before making this recipe, I didn’t really know what a Jerusalem artichoke was. I guess the name threw me off. I figured…Jerusalem…artichoke, must be a variety of artichokes native to Jerusalem, right? Not so much.
This was the most violent meal I ever made. It wasn’t my intention; after all there’s nothing particular violent about eggs or asparagus and what have chives ever done to hurt you? (Assuming you’re not deathly allergic!) But injuries were sustained during the course of cooking this meal and I assure you I will elaborate on those in a bit but…first things first: Frittatas!
I’m a huge fan of breakfast for dinner, but something tells me that eating a large stack of pancakes with a glass of wine past 5 PM isn’t socially acceptable. I may beg to differ one day, but for now…I’ve got frittatas. They are surprisingly simple to make and, with a side salad and glass of wine, can easily transition from traditional brunch to a light supper.
Last Easter, my family and I eagerly tore open the Cake Pops package, our Pinterest boards fully stocked with cutesy pics of puffy sheep and ombre eggs and spiral tailed piglets; all perfectly crafted in a neat little row, surrounded by paper green grass. It’s a cake…it’s a pop…it’s adorable! How could we not make these? And how could we not succeed???
A few hours into the project our confidence waned. Frosting was splattered across all the kitchen counter tops, along with pieces of broken cake and fallen appendages from our would be chicks. In the end, we were left with only a handful of sad surviving pops that left our dinner guests asking “What the heck is that?” I’d post pictures, but they were borderline offensive.
It’s one of my fondest Easter memories. But this year, I’m ready for something new. Something much less fussy but still festive. Something cute but still elegant. Alas, I bring you the Madeleine!
We aren’t making homemade Irish cream for nothing! This Sundae combines the best of the best for St. Patrick’s Day: Guinness, Irish Whiskey, Chocolate and Cream. It’s naughty and decadent, perfect for for an annual tradition sort of deal. Certainly beats corn beef hash!

Because what’s St. Patrick’s day without copious amounts of Whiskey? Sure you can head to the store an buy some Bailey’s; but this version is fresher, tastier and makes a cute gift for your buds. I, however, have some other plans in mind for this recipe…You’ll have to stay tuned, Part II is coming soon!
