Have you ever eaten Colcannon? It is a wonderful creamy combination of mashed potatoes, shredded cabbage or kale, and oozing butter. It is often associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but it is a warm and hearty dish for any day! (more…)

Someone once asked me why I volunteer every week at Bountiful Baskets. It’s not like I’m not busy enough already. I have an extremely busy and demanding life. I have a beautiful family that cook for, clean up after, run a household for, play tag with…. I’m a mom; a jack of all trades! My kisses make pains go away, my hugs make fears go away, my tenderness makes people feel loved. I am a wife, a mother, a homemaker, a professional woman with my own staff and career. We are in the middle of starting our own business. I have personal goals and dreams that I give attention to. I have relationships that I make an effort to maintain. So why do I spend every Saturday morning getting up at the crack of dawn to volunteer for Bountiful Baskets when its only “suggested” once every 6 times?

Many of us got cabbage last week so I thought I’d share my favorite recipe for it. This actually comes courtesy of my wife and her family so I can’t take credit for it. It is one of the many things from her family though that I love. I should mention it is easily adjustable based on how much cabbage you have or want to use. Depending on what other plans we have for ours or how big the head is we vary the quantities a bit.
