Ireland Round-Up

Hi Folks,

sorry for the round-up delay: this week was inspection on my new house and the first showing on my current house- it has been crazy, crazy busy.  But guess what?  Looks like you all have been crazy busy, too, cooking up a storm!  11 people participated this time around!

Rosie from Cooking with Rosie made some yummy looking Irish Champ, which is a great way to change up your standard potato side dish.

The Poor Folk Gourmet made boxty, which I had never heard of, but turns out it is a potato pancake- my favorite!!

Co-host Andrea Nummy Kitchen was a real over achiever this week and made 3! types of Irish bread.  Now that is dedication!

Michelle from My Year to Get Skinny made the classic- Corned Beef and Cabbage!

Natashya from Living in the Kitchen with Puppies,  made guinness bread.  I love beer based breads, I bet this one had a delicious deep richness to it

Colleen from as is proper . . .  had an Irish filled day- Irish Soda Bread for breakfast, Shepards pie for dinner, and Chocolate Guinness Cake for dessert!  Nice!

Judy from Judy's Gross Eats also made that an Irish dinner, including delicious looking champ, and pork with Guinness sauce.  

Joanna from In Search of Lost Time brings had dinner and a movie, featuring a screening of Angela's Ashes and  Fish and Chips.  

More Than Burnt Toast brings us  Whiskey Chicken and Colcannon, another yummy potato dish!

Jess from Chubb made us some Irish Soda Bread- I'm glad she got it up, better late then never!

And I, your humble co-host from I'll Eat You made Irish Soda Bread in muffin form- perfect for a quick breakfast!

Thanks to everyone who participated!  What a great (not to mention delicious) turnout!  See you soon for our next adventure!

MKMW Spain Round-up

Time for our round-up! Here we go...

Lauren at I'll Eat You made two tapas that she had on her recent trip to Spain, Huevos Estrellados -- crispy paprika potatoes topped with a fried egg; and a classic tapas dish of Garlic Shrimp.

Olga at Olga's Recipes treated us to two dishes as well, an egg and potato Spanish Omelette, and Crema Catalana, which is a custard similar to Creme Brulee but from the Catalonia region of Spain.

Judy at Judy's Gross Eats made a contemporary lentil salad from her new Spanish cookbook, she modified it a little and shared her version of this make again recipe.

Joanna at In Search of Lost Time made a tapas feast, complete with olives, bits of two cheeses, a spicy aioli-ish sauce to match what she had at the tapas bar, Gambas al Ajillo (shrimp in garlic sauce), potatoes with chorizo sausage, and a small loaf of bread.

Christine at Kits Chow made Pollo en pepitoria - chicken in egg, almond and sherry sauce, and has some beautiful photos of Spain on her post.

Natashya at Living in the Kitchen with Puppies made a Spanish Rice Pudding with Almonds from Gourmet Magazine that looks extra creamy and could also double as breakfast, yum!

Andrea at Nummy Kitchen (that's me :) ) made Cashew Nut Paella, a vegetarian version with yummy cashew nuts and lots of peppers, which was delicious. I also made some Spanish breakfast rolls that were wonderful but I haven't had a chance to post yet.

Thank you all so much for participating with My Kitchen My World Spain! Go check out all of those amazing Spanish dishes and maybe you will find a new dish that you just have to try!

Remember that our next country for My Kitche My World is Ireland to keep everyone in the Irish mood set by St. Patrick's Day. Posting day for MKMW Ireland is March 21st.

Thanks for visiting,
