Lentil Dahl Lentil Dahl By Foodborn and Bred 01/17/15 18:44 We have been trying to reduce meat meals here at least once a week (meat free Monday) and often more.

Gingerbread Caramel Pie (using up leftover gingerbread dough) Gingerbread Caramel Pie (using up leftover gingerbread dough) By Foodborn and Bred 01/03/15 20:45 For some reason I have never made a gingerbread house.

Tiramisu - Pick me Up Tiramisu - Pick me Up By Foodborn and Bred 12/21/14 22:04 Tiramisu or Pick me Up (translated) is an Italian dessert. More often than not, in Italy, it doesn't contain any alcohol. Personally, I think it's the kick that makes it. I've tried all sorts of alcohol but have decided that Martinique rum is the business...
A Christmas Tale A Christmas Tale By Foodborn and Bred 12/19/14 19:44 It was a competition in the Irish Times. Send in a photo of your favourite Christmas bauble and tell the story behind it. It implied a much loved, battered old family heirloom. Something passed down through generations perhaps. I had been thinking about...

Balsamic Pickled Onions Balsamic Pickled Onions By Foodborn and Bred 11/15/14 18:41 Have to confess I have never pickled onions before but when a Twitter pal, Sian offered to send me a recipe, I decided to have a go.

How Free Range is your Turkey How Free Range is your Turkey By Foodborn and Bred 11/06/14 13:59 Www.keaveyeats.com Have you ever wondered why intensive free range turkeys all seem to congregate at the door of their huge sheds? I always have. I had assumed it was because they were institutionalised and didn't want to leave the heat of the shed. But...
Feast Raising for Kilkenny Town of Food Feast Raising for Kilkenny Town of Food By Foodborn and Bred 10/28/14 15:09 Feast raising - the act of feasting for a good cause. I'm not sure who's genius idea this was, but it is genius. I got a surprise invite to Kilkenny on the Sunday of the October Bank Holiday weekend for the night. Now, I don't need very much encouragement...

Water Water Everywhere Water Water Everywhere By Foodborn and Bred 10/01/14 14:49 There's been lots of talk lately about water, water charges and water meters.
