Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Irish soda bread

    • nadiam1000 on March 19, 2018

      The first recipe I made from this book and it came together easily and baked into a nice loaf. I baked 25 minutes and it could have used a few minutes more - center was a tad gummy but otherwise a nice crusty loaf which was delicious buttered with a bowl of soup.

  • Brown soda bread

    • lhudson on March 07, 2021

      Getting ready for St. Patty's day and gave this recipe a try along with the Irish Soda Bread. This was definitely the better of the two breads.

  • Potato cakes

    • Sandiegolemons on May 26, 2018

      I’ve been trying to find a potato cake recipe but none have hit it out of the park, unfortunately this one didn’t either. I did not use the optional egg but think it may help. It’s also very gummy with the amount of flour. Maybe it just needs a beer to go with it.

  • Irish rarebit

    • wkhull on December 25, 2019

      My mixture was too oily and thin, though very tasty (especially with the pickles). Upon further rarebit 101 reading, the oily/thin sauce might be prevented by not allowing the mix to come anywhere close to a boil. Melt the butter, add the cheese at a little at a time, taking your time. Then take off heat, and while toasting the bread consider tempering in a couple beaten egg yolks into the cheese mixture before topping on the bread for the final broil. Will be making this again!

  • Smoked mackerel and horseradish pate

    • wkhull on December 27, 2019

      I used 16 oz of smoked mackerel without adjusting any other ingredient amounts. Was nervous about adding juice of entire lemon and so much horseradish, but it ended up being a tangy but very good balance. Tasted great on super healthy high fiber crackers. Will definitely be putting this into the "don't feel like cooking dinner" arsenal.
