Irish beef stew with beer. Irish beef stew with beer Zainspirowałam się sesją zdjęciową na stronie Jul's Kitchen. Czasem tak robię - zbieram zdjęcia, które mi się podobają i inspiruję się na przykład ułożeniem. Staram się jednocześnie niczego nie kopiować. Zawsze podziwiałam tych, którzy robią zdjęcia "w trakcie. " Dla mnie to trochę niewygodne tak biegać z pokrojoną cebulą po całym domu, bo w kuchni zdjęcia wychodzą złe. Jeżeli ktoś mnie śledzi na Facebooku pewnie czytał, że mam w kuchni różowe ściany. Sam kolor problemu nie stanowi, niestety światło się od tych ścian odbija i sprawia, że zdjęcia wychodzą czerwonawe. Gulasz natomiast chodził za mną już od jakiegoś czasu, w końcu zrobiłam ten, przyciągnęło mnie do niego Irlandzkie piwo (miał być Guiness, ale nie znalazłam niestety).

W oryginale Jul użyła szybkowaru i chyba pozazdrościłam jej wynalazku, bo całość miała gotową w 30 minut. Gulasz wołowy z piwem irlandzkim duża porcja na około 5 osób I was inspired by the photo shoot at Jul's Kitchen. Enjoy! Foodgawker | feed your eyes. Chocolate Therapy: Crockpot Chicken Tacos. I'll keep this short and sweet: this is one of my all time favorite recipes. If there is one crockpot recipe you need in your repertoire, this is it. But truthfully, after making it once you won't even need the recipe because it's just so darn easy. Three ingredients and almost zero work. The result is a juicy, flavorful shredded chicken that makes some killer tacos. I like to load up my tacos, so they look a bit messy in the pictures.

They were like that in real life, too. Messy and delicious. You can easily put together a great tortilla soup with the leftovers from the chicken. **As a side note, I am SO grateful to everyone who has made this recipe and/or commented on the post.

TGIF, friends. Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead. I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend. OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing. Did I mention on here that I’m leading an Easter choir at my church?! I’m kind of over the moon about it. Our little midtown church is overflowing with artists and talented musicians, but all of the singers have never come together to actually do the choir thing in worship before…until now.

Anyway, warm wishes coming your way for a good weekend ahead. Read more Ever since my friends and I met for a tapas happy hour at our neighborhood Spanish restaurant a few weeks ago, I’ve had sangria on my mind. …oh good grief, why had I never thought of this before? Sangria with All The Colors. The only reasonable solution, of course. ;) Baked Cheesy Chicken Bake. Today’s recipe is a cheesy baked pasta that I found over at Our Best Bites .

Sara based the recipe on a Martha Stewart recipe. This yummy dish consists of a cheesy pasta blended with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, and mushrooms. Now I know the sun-dried tomatoes aren’t something most of you probably keep on had, so you could just leave them out if you like. Then just up the amount of chicken or mushrooms by 1 cup or I was thinking some broccoli or asparagus tips would also work well in place of the tomatoes. Another great thing about this recipe is it makes two – 2 quart dishes. When I made this recipe I also decided to try it with some pasta samples that I had received from Ronzoni .

Finally, the winner of the “Nourish Your Inner Goddess” giveaway from Yoplait and MyBlogSpark is: Kate who said: I always love any kind of berry yogurt. Congrats Kate!

Food Swoon | Pasta With Lemon Cream And Shrimp. I’ve procrastinated to the point that I’m sharing an Olympics-inspired recipe after the Olympics are over. Sorry. But it’s fitting because this recipe is inspired in part by a memorable meal I had in Greece the week after the 2004 Athens Olympics ended. In my sportswriting heyday, I worked a few contract gigs for NBC’s website,

I was first hired as a fact-checker during the 2000 Sydney Games as part of a crew based in San Francisco. I fact-checked incoming copy from Sydney and wrote dozens, hundreds, MILLIONS of athlete bios. It should be noted that in 2000 the internet was still a relatively new media tool. Following the Sydney Olympics, I worked as a copy editor for the 2002 Salt Lake Games and as the tennis and softball web producer for the 2004 Athens Games.

(On my way to a tennis match wearing the bazillion required credentials) (On the job) (In the stands) When Athens rolled around, I got smart and tacked on a few days at the end to travel.

As 2011 draws to an end, my first thought is "holy crap, this year went by fast! " It has definitely been a great year - both for the blog, and for me personally. Over the next two days, I'll be posting year end round-ups. Today I'm sharing the most popular recipes posted this year, and tomorrow I'll share with you my personal favorites.

So let's jump right in... While once again the chicken enchiladas I posted over two years ago still reign supreme as the most-viewed recipe on my blog, these baked chicken taquitos are quite popular as well. They are easy, delicious, and relatively healthy. And they can be made ahead and frozen, which makes them even more wonderful. These blackberry pie bars are not only popular because they are just so darn good, but also because they are open to so many variations. Cookie dough fudge. Oven-fried onion rings are a bit labor-intensive, but they are well worth the effort. This spiced chipotle-honey chicken with roasted sweet potatoes is healthy though. Easy Vegan Pad Thai « Vegetarian 'Ventures.

Easy Vegan Pad Thai Okay, so after having an epic cooking marathon this past weekend for Christmas, I’ve been feeling a bit less motivated in the kitchen and have been making my boyfriend survive off of leftovers. Finally, I regained the desire to cook up something fresh last night and decided to whip out this pad thai for dinner because we had everything on hand and it was about as simple as recipes come. Although this recipe was simple, it was (to my honest surprise) super delicious. Sometimes I find “half-assed” pasta recipes to be bland and not as flavorful as their scent but this stuff was really as good as take out. It took us maybe 20 minutes to whip up (at the most) so I am excited to add this one to my weeknight rotation when I’m short on time and need something comforting. Plus, it’s vegan (thank goodness. Cheese in pad thai…yuck)! Vegan Pad Thai In a large pot, boil the lo mein noodles according to the package directions.

I’m guest posting again on Milli’s blog today, and I’ve decided to share my recipe for Chicken Pesto Pizza. When I was working at the courthouse, one of my favorite things to get for lunch at the Judge’s Dining Room was the Chicken Pesto Sandwich.

Grilled chicken, thick slices of fresh mozzarella and spinach sandwiched in a toasted ciabatta roll slathered with homemade pesto. Mmmmm. This pizza version is just as delicious, and even easier to eat.
