Luck of the Irish- Guinness Bread, Cake & Scones

I went to Ireland this past week and loved every minute of it.  The sights were beautiful, the people warm, informative, friendly!  The native country food?  Excellent. The lucky part of this trip was that I lucked into several authentic recipes- now that's Irish luck!

I had the pleasure of visiting a dairy farm- Molanna Dairy during my visit and the family was ki...

Chef Susan Ytterberg- Crazy Good Chicken Pot Pie

Crazy Good Chicken Pot Pie!

I have loved comfort food for years but have never quite found a pot pie that spoke to me.  The frozen pot pies you buy at the store are flavorless, and the crust disappoints.  I've had others where the crust is great, but the filling's bland and the Veloute Sauce (I'll get to that in a minute) is runny.  So, I have created a new recipe based on the basic principle of most other pot pie recipes with one great exceptio...

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce- The Easy Way

Chef Susan Ytterberg

I love Thai Food. I do!  What's my number 1 dish I love the most?  Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce- L O V E!  So, years ago I took a Thai cooking class from a woman in San Francisco who had just immigrated from Thailand.  This was back before cooking classes were popular, back before the Food Network existed; back before it was cool to be into cooking.  Even in SF there weren'...

Chef Susan Ytterberg- Vegan Eggplant Rotini

I often create my own recipes by putting together flavors and ingredients that I think are congruent or go together!  I am looking for flavors that complement and textures that satisy and also are filling.  Some vegan dishes start to look and taste the same so I constantly try to create recipes that are unique and delicious. I created this in the past month when I was cooking for one of my private clients...

Chef Susan Ytterberg- Truffle & Garlic Flat Bread

Have you ever had a truffle?  No, not the chocolate ball of deliciousness you're thinking of.  I mean a woodsy, oaktree, underground, mushroomy truffle found in Italy.  Wait, you're thinking- how am I supposed to get my hands on a truffle, and how can I afford one?  Well, in small amounts particularly when purchasing a truffle cream in a small jar, they can really be within your grasp!   I find mi...

Credit for the recipe and concept goes to Colleen Johnson March 2006 Prep Kitchen Essentials Class in California. This recipe has been modified by me but complete credit & thanks for the idea goes to Colleen.

Do you love the idea of making a sweet bread dough at night, that you can prep and then leave in the fridge to rise overnight? Then you wake up the next morning and throw it in...
