Before I get into any critiques of what is or isn't Irish food, I'd like to list out my credentials:
I am roughly 65-percent Irish by birth.
I have been forced to listen to Irish folk music from the age of nine because whoever drove got to control the radio.
I attended Irish Fest in Milwaukee unwillingly for at least seven years in a row during my formative years. I've willingly gone back twice as an adult.
My father once gave Tommy Makem an instant Irish oatmeal pack.
I once sang "Danny Boy" at the top of my lungs at an Irish Pub in D.C. with Ted Kennedy, who was only 40 feet away from me.
I really like Guinness.
My mom’s side of the family is Irish, and very proud of that fact. I thought my grandparents made Irish food more when I was younger, because I have vivid memories of parsley dumplings afloat in Irish stew and seeing it come back up later that night....more
If you also fall under the category of “coffee addicts” then this recipe is for you! This recipe was originally cited in Taste of Home’s website and was shared by my friend Stacy Deason and believe me the moment I tried this recipe I was stunned and mesmerized by its taste. The flavor of coffee and molasses goes perfectly with the pork. This is an absolutely delightful and easy pork chop recipe that you can try at even given day and if you want then make this recipe on St. Patrick’s Day too. ...more

Bisquick Sausage Balls are one of those recipes that invoke nostalgic memories. They make a great party appetizer, holiday breakfast or kids snack. Of course they can be made from scratch, too. But using store-bought or homemade Bisquick mix certainly makes preparing them easy and quick. The addition of sharp cheese, like Cheddar or Parmesan, and a pinch of hot cayenne pepper makes them even more flavorful. I still haven’t tried it yet, but when researching the net I found that they can freeze well. When cooking from frozen, allow them several more minutes of cooking time....more
