Puree Of Pea Soup With Mushrooms

Every year after Easter my Gramma would make pea soup. I looked forward to it almost as much as the Easter Bunny. I realize now she made it after Easter because we always had a ham bone left over for the soup, but back then I just figured it was another Easter tradition along the…

Green Chile Breakfast Casserole

Every Easter morning my mom made a green chile breakfast casserole. My brother and I were not fans of spicy food when we were kids, so my gram would usually make us pancakes. When I got older I gained an appreciation for chiles, but since we do Easter morning with Mike’s family I never get…

Shamrock Beach

I tended bar on one St. Patrick’s Day, and it was as crazy as you might expect. One of the more veteran bartenders warned me that the guys would all ask for Guinness, and the girls would all ask for, “something tasty and green, hee hee hee!” I whipped up an easy drink for this…

Cereal Cookies

My Gramma made all sorts of cookies when we were growing up, but nothing went over as wildly as her Cereal Cookies. They were famous in our neighborhood. Lots of my friends have the recipe now and make the cookies for their kids, which I know would make my gram so happy. Cereal Cookies You…

My friend Leslie makes the most delicious barbecue tri tip sandwiches. Mike drools over them. I think they are great, but I can keep it in check, jeez Mike. I asked her for the recipe, and it was so easy – two pounds of tri tip roast and a bottle of BBQ sauce thrown into…

And I know there are probably a billion recipes exactly like this because DUH but I am still proud of myself…

Heavenly Hash

My favorite comfort food is something my Gramma used to make called Heavenly Hash. When I had a rough day or was sick, my Gram would make Heavenly Hash to make me feel better. During both my pregnancies, my mom would make it for me as it was one of the few things I could…

Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

My Gramma wrote down most of her recipes, but she made some of our favorites so often that the only “recipe” she had was a scrap of paper with some scrawled-out ingredients. My mom and aunts were able to figure out the instructions for most of these recipes, but the family favorite Cherry Cream Cheese…
