Seafood Pot Pie

We’ve traded in our typical pot pie for an ultra creamy, extravagant version that still doesn’t break the grocery budget. Lump crab, cooked shrimp, creole seasoning, bacon– just to name a few of the flavors stuffed in this filling Seafood Pot Pie. Of course, it’s rounded out with a classic veggie medley of peas, carrots, and corn. It’s a savory meal tucked into every perfectly flaky crust-sandwiched juicy pot pie bite.

Mushroom & Swiss Loaded Potato Soup

How many times have to been out to eat perusing the menu and wondering what the soup of the day was? While I may wonder, I often don’t even bother to ask. Other times, I’ll decide to go a bit rogue and inquire. I’m usually disappointed, not because of the quality of the joint or what they’re offering, but because we cook so often I find I’m not willing to pay money for something I regularly make myself. However, there was one day where this little voice just kept whispering in my ear that I must ask after the days’ special. I am so glad I did, because it may never have occurred to me to makeover one of my favorite soup’s from my childhood with one of my favorite adult flavor combinations. And that is how I stumbled upon this soup. Now I’m as likely to make a pot of my favorite potato soup on a cold day as I am sto stir in some Swiss cheese and sautéed mushrooms.

Steak & Guinness Pie

This is the second of this year’s recipe trilogy in honor of Saint Patrick’s day. Guinness got just about everything right with their traditional stout, but one thing my father never told me as he slowly sipped it from an ice cold mug, is that it could be so much more than just a relaxing night cap. Last year we introduced you to our Guinness beef stew. This year we built on that idea and decided to put it in possibly the best dinner pie of all time. Steak and Guinness Pie is rich, it’s hearty, and embraces one of the tastiest Irish dinners of all time. Merging a beef pot pie with the tenderizing and fortifying flavors of Guinness stout is pure genius.

Whipped Mashed Potatoes & Dijon Stout Gravy

Every year for St Paddy’s Day we enjoy some variation of Corned Beef & Cabbage. It’s tradition. And I almost always let my brisket slow cook. When it’s done? It’s so tender it’s like slicing through butter. The cabbage and carrots are like little sponges that absorb every ounce of the magically delicious broth. We pair it with a good glass of stout, and colcannon and you might find you open your mouth to talk only to have ‘Top of the morning to ya’ tumble on out. But, if you’re looking to up the anti, trust me, and include these creamy whipped mashed potatoes topped with our thick, rich Dijon stout gravy.

Sausage Alfredo Stuffed French Bread Sandwiches

Do you ever take a trip down memory lane and thank the good Lord that the early 2000’s were over a decade ago and can’t believe you ever embraced those questionable fashion trends? Like using your Dad’s old neck tie as a belt, or those chunky hair highlights, aka zebra head? Yeah.

Sometimes updates are a good thing.
