Is is too much to ask to see blue skies, fluffy white clouds and to feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, while the first breeze of spring gently caresses your cheek….sighIt must be because instead we get rain, and then more rain….winds not breezes and the sun…..well lets just say we know its still there somewhere.But enough of that, today is a happy day!! It’s guest post Friday, and today you get to share with you, Kate from Diethood. Many of you might know Kate already, because she has quickly become one the rising stars in our blogosphere. If you haven’t seen Kate yet, be prepared, Diethood has quickly become a favorite of the Foodbuzz set, where you can see her images on the Top 9 with regularity.
If this is your first time meeting Kate you are certainly in for a treat, her skills with the camera will leave you drooling on your keyboard as you see image after image of her delicious creations, and as you read her posts you will think you are talking to an old friend…..
So my friends, sit back, relax, and get ready to make a new friend, as I give you…….
I am Katerina – Kate – Petrovska, author of Diethood.com, and I am so excited to be here! I could not keep myself calm when I received Chef Dennis’ guest-post invitation. I even called my husband and my mom to brag! That’s right, I said brag. I do that sometimes. I mean, it’s the ever so wonderful Chef Dennis – one of the best foodies in the food blogosphere – of course I am going to brag! Thank you, Chef, for having me here today!
After a few email exchanges, I was told that my post would debut around mid-March. With that in mind I knew exactly what I was going to cook up for you; a traditional Irish meal in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!
To prepare for this dish I did some research (called my half-Irish cousin), and after I told him about a few of my Irish food choices, he said to definitely go with the Coddle – according to him, Coddle, or the Dublin Coddle, happens to be a favorite amongst the Irish.
|Irish Soda Bread|
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups of buttermilk
But before you leave, I want to let everyone know I have another copy of Dorie’s “Around My French Table” to give away! I loved Dorie’s new cookbook so much I had to get another copy to give away to my readers.
You know the drill, just leave a comment and let me know you would like Dorie’s book, and you will be entered to win. That’s all you have to do, you don’t have to like me, follow me or bake me cookies (although cookies would gain you bonus points).
Have a wonderful weekend my friends, spend time with someone you love and look for signs of spring!
