Organizer Jen and I Slay the Last of PCS2017

My friend Jen Stark, aka “Organizer Jen” drove down from Pennsylvania last month to help me destroy the last bits of unpacking from our massive move from Okinawa, Japan.  I had already unpacked 11,000 pounds of household goods on my own by the time our shipment from Okinawa arrived.  When the movers set down 6,500 pounds (our entire Okinawa household) in my dining room, it felt like a literal punch in the gut.  If I didn’t know Jen was already on her way, I’m pretty sure I would have cried. Below are the three episodes we live-broadcasted, detailing Jen’s organizing […]

Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potatoes and Carrots. “Fah Gahds SAKE!!”

Okay, THIS is delicious.  For full instructions and shenanigans, including my list of how to live the “Irish Way” watch the vid below. This is another one of my pressure cooker recipes.  I usually make corned beef in the crockpot, but I just got a new pressure cooker and I’m dang excited about it. Instructions/recipe: Put one corned beef, plus the contents of the spice packet in your pressure cooker.  Add 5-6 whole, peeled potatoes and one whole bottle of Guinness beer.  Set to the “chicken/meat” setting and shift time selector to “medium”.  The pressure cooker will heat up for about 10 minutes, then […]

Irish Soda Bread

Easy, frugal and it comes together in a snap:  It’s Irish Soda Bread.  You know those Irish mothers didn’t have time to mess around! Like I say in my live-recorded vid below – real Irish soda bread contains only flour, salt, leavening agents and buttermilk.  Mix it with a spoon, roll the dough around enough to make a nice ball (it will be sticky on the inside), bake it at a high heat to crisp the outside, and you’ll have bread for your family in about 40 minutes total. Recipe: 4 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 2 cups buttermilk Bake […]
