Yvette van Bovan’s Home Made Winter is full of comforting winter food, including inspiration from Ireland where she spent her childhood.


Irish Stew with Soda Bread sounded like the perfect recipe with our unusually cold winter weather~ hearty, comforting and a celebration in a bowl in advance of St. Patrick’s Day!


Yvette von Boven’s recipe for Irish Stew calls for lamb. I substituted beef, using a 1 1/2 pound chuck roast. I also added some additional parsnips and carrots in place of the rutabaga in the recipe. This is a delicious stick-to-your-ribs Irish Stew!

nigella’s lemon polenta (gluten free) cake …


([{ the_food_artisan }])

Nigella’s lemon polenta cake recipe is courtesy of Tabitha’s Gluten Free Dishes. (Tabitha started her blog to show how enjoyable and simple gluten free food is.)

To quote Nigella re the lemon polenta cake >> «The flavoursome grittiness of the polenta and tender rubble of ground almonds provide so much better a foil for the wholly desirable dampness than does the usual flour. The lemon highlights the eggy butteriness of the cake, making it rich and sharp at the same time. If you were to try to imagine what lemon curd would taste like in cake form, this would be it.» You know what? She’s not wrong. This cake is scrumptious!

For the cake
200g soft unsalted butter (plus extra for greasing)
200g caster sugar
200g ground almonds (or almond meal)
100 grams fine polenta (or cornmeal)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (gluten free)
3 large eggs
