St. Patrick’s Day is here, which means that about two weeks ago you probably forgot to corn the beef. But there are other parts of Irish culture we can still celebrate, without as much advanced preparation. Like James Joyce, whose masterpiece Ulysses was first published exactly 100 years ago on Feb. 2, 1922. So in honor of this centennial, and St. Patrick’s Day, I developed this recipe for Guinness stew.

With the invasion happening in real time as I write this, I have no idea how the chips will have fallen by the time you read it. But one thing is clear. President Zelenskyy, and the nation he leads, are like a hearty bowl of borscht. The Ukrainians are hearty and grounded, while Vladimir Putin by contrast is a tepid plate of Chicken Kyiv. He’s a flightless bird struggling for relevancy.

Wild game is the tastiest, cleanest, and most ecologically justifiable meat on the planet. But the ultimate reward of hunting is neither the kill or the thrill of the chase, but how you come out the other side — regardless of whether you bring meat. It requires competency on many levels, including navigation, shooting, wildlife biology, your own physical limits, and reading a landscape.

It is frequently difficult to find a place to go out to eat that is not overly crowded on Valentine's Day, so how about preparing your own special dinner at home.

Hen husbandry is a full-contact sport. And while there are many upsides to flockster life, the eggs aren’t free, and they aren’t always sunny side up.

Spud Bisque is as thick as any roux-based soup, with a grounding, fungal flavor. It’s completely satisfying served as is, with a garnish of chopped greens and mayo, and the kids love it.

Soup can be so cozy to eat when its cold and snowy outside. It is also welcomed when you want something hearty and filling, and you can include all the essential nutrients in one bowl.  

You can prepare pears in many ways, whether you decide to have them fresh, baked in bread, prepared into desserts, in salads, roasted with meats, made into preserves, served as an appetizer or in drinks.

I have perfected hot cocoa. Created the cup that I always wanted, but nobody else could give to me. My cocoa is as thick as sea foam, yet flows enough to drink, each swallow like a warm hug.

French onion soup is the world’s most elegant dish. Not the kind of elegance you’d find on a white tablecloth with extra silverware, but elegant in the sense that scientists use the word.

If you have not decided on your menu for your holiday meals, and would like to try something new, here are some dishes that you may be interested to try.

The holidays are a perfect time to make traditional Christmas breads. There are so many breads and coffee cakes that have been made for years that celebrate the Christmas theme.

If you need a more filling soup, @themodernnonna has you covered with this hearty recipe. The soup cooks down to an almost stew-like consistency. It’s also vegan friendly.

Since preparing week-night meals is one of the biggest challenges many families face, it makes sense that the slow cooker can be a “best friend”. Put the ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning and dinner is ready for you by evening.
