This Sopa de Albóndigas was inspired by a Mexican cookbook I have had forever. 


Sopa de Albóndigas | Mexican Meatball Soup


This Sopa de Albóndigas, or Mexican Meatball Soup, is pretty simple, but completely flavorful. Mr. Kitchen declared that this soup is "amazing." He normally is pretty tentative about the spicy food I make, but he adored this soup.

Sour Cherry, Peanut, and Barley Sourdough Bread

I am really excited about this Sour Cherry, Peanut, and Barley Sourdough Bread.

Sour Cherry, Peanut, and Barley Sourdough Bread







For this sour cherry, peanut, and barley sourdough bread, I decided to experiment with different ingredients. I had some barley flour left over from making these multigrain snickerdoodles taunting me (as do all of the specialty ingredients now languishing in the garage fridge and pantry).

Colcannon Cakes | Irish Potato Pancakes

These Colcannon Cakes are the perfect way to use up any leftover Colcannon you may have, although I can't imagine why you'd have leftovers! 


Colcannon Cakes, delicious Irish Potato Pancakes
I cannot emphasize how much I loved these Colcannon cakes. They are so good. They are worth making a batch of Colcannon just to make these potato pancakes.
