Sundays during football season in our house are a BIG deal. My husband generally spends the entire day watching football and talking all things football with his buddies. I don’t get it. But with him being consumed all day that leaves ample time for me to get in the kitchen and experiment with new meals. This past Sunday, we had a hankerin’ for some fajitas. Normally, when we do fajitas we go to the store and buy flour tortillas. But I remembered when I was a kid my mom would use pita bread with hers. It makes them a little heartier and all of the juices that would drain from the meat would get absorbed into the bread as opposed to a flour tortilla where it would just glides down and lands on the plate and get all messy. Being the experimental bread baker that I am, it made me start thinking about making my own. I had found a few recipes on Pinterest so I just picked the one that looked best. Enter Half Baked Harvest and her Traditional Greek Pita Bread.
Christmas Eve is tomorrow night and I can finally say that all our holiday shopping is officially done! And I never even stepped foot in a mall. Online shopping is truly one of the internet super highways greatest inventions. In celebration of this momentous occasion, I would like to introduce you to another great invention. Homemade Irish Cream. Now, I love me some Baileys as much as the next gal but there is just something about the homemade version that as my dad would put it “gives me a warm fuzzy”. This recipe has been handed down for several generations from my husbands family and while their version calls for brandy, I’ve opted to go the traditional route and use Irish Whisky. It really doesn’t matter which one you go with either. We’ve used Jameson, Tullamore Dew and Two Gingers and all of them work just dandy. This stuff is perfect for any holiday party or any day really and can get even the finickiest of drinkers to cave to it’s deliciousness. So, without further adieu the recipe for the best Irish Cream ever. Cheers!
