Irish Beef Stew
If you’re looking for a healthy beef stew recipe that delivers on comfort, look no further. This one-pot Irish beef stew is packed with veggies and rich meaty flavor. Make this Irish beef stew recipe with Guinness–a dark, malty Irish stout–to keep it authentic. Serve with a side of Irish soda bread to sop up the leftovers………………

Slow-Cooker Stout and Chicken Stew
Chicken thighs can take plenty of cooking without getting tough or drying out, which makes them perfect for the slow cooker. Here we braise them in Guinness stout along with hearty vegetables, with just the right amount of bacon for added savoriness………….

Whole-Wheat Irish Soda Bread
Soda breads are hearty Irish staples–wholemeal flour with large flakes of bran and wheat germ, or white flour or a mixture leavened with baking soda and moistened with buttermilk. The acid in the buttermilk reacts with the baking soda, which is an alkali, creating bubbles of carbon dioxide which rise the bread. Soda breads have the heft of a yeast bread but are made in minutes and the dough can be shaped into scones or a round loaf, depending on the occasion. Originally it would have been baked in a bastible (pot oven) over the open fire………………

One of America’s Favorites – Beer Cheese (spread)

8 ounce tub of original Beer Cheese

Beer cheese is a cheese spread most commonly found in Kentucky. Similarly named cheese products can be found in other regions of the United States, but beer cheese spread itself is not widely distributed. There are a number of different brands that are popular, most are similar in taste and texture.

Commercially produced beer cheese spread usually consists of a processed cheese base with a sharp cheddar flavor, while homemade varieties almost always start with sharp cheddar cheese. To this, enough beer is added to provide flavor and texture, as well as garlic, and a variety of spices including dry mustard, horseradish and cayenne pepper. Most varieties come in “mild” and “hot” versions, but all tend to have a strong garlic flavor. Beer cheese is traditionally served with saltine crackers, though it can be found served with various other crackers and crudités, most often as an appetizer.

While there are conflicting stories about beer cheese’s origins, it appears to have first been served in the 1940s at a restaurant in Clark County, Kentucky known as Johnny Allman’s. The owner of the restaurant, John Allman, credited the invention of the cheese spread to his cousin, Joe Allman, a chef in Phoenix, Arizona. Joe’s Southwestern influence is said by some to explain the spread’s spicy nature. The original Johnny Allman’s restaurant has changed ownership a couple of times since the 1940’s and is currently Hall’s on the River, located on the Kentucky River in Winchester, KY. The original beer cheese is still served at Hall’s on the River.

On February 21, 2013, the Kentucky Legislature decreed Clark County as the birthplace of beer cheese.

An annual Beer Cheese Festival is held in downtown Winchester, Kentucky (the county seat of Clark County) featuring local arts & crafts vendors as well as both commercial and amateur recipe contests.

Low-Calorie Creamy Soup RecipesEatingWell2

Low-calorie recipes for pea soup, mushroom soup, potato soup and more creamy soups.
For a comforting and slimming dinner, warm up with a piping-hot bowl of one of these lightened-up creamy soup. To make our low-calorie pea soup recipes, potato soup recipes, cream of mushroom soup recipes, broccoli soup recipes and more creamy soup recipes healthier, we removed much of the butter and cream of classic versions to trim calories and fat. Enjoy a creamy bowl of one of our low-calorie soup recipes, chowder recipes or bisque recipes tonight for a healthy, filling dinner.

 

 

Cream of Turkey & Wild Rice Soup
This is a healthier twist on a classic creamy turkey and wild rice soup that hails from Minnesota. Serve with a crisp romaine salad and whole-grain bread……

 
Cheddar-Ale Soup
Our cheese- and beer-lover’s potato soup has only a fraction of the fat and sodium of a traditional recipe. We use low-fat milk and only a little oil and keep the flavor strong with zesty, sharp Cheddar cheese. Precooked diced potatoes, which you can get at many supermarkets, keep this recipe super speedy. Regular diced red potatoes also work—you’ll just need to increase the cooking time…..

 
Cream of Mushroom & Barley Soup
This sophisticated take on creamy mushroom soup is rich with earthy porcini mushrooms and has the added goodness of whole-grain barley…..
