Happy Holidays

20141224_184744Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

One of my traditions is to make a batch of Irish Cream-this is a recipe I have had for a long time, not sure where it came from and I know there are probably many versions out there on line.  Anyway, several friends have asked for a copy so I am posting it here.  For a last minute gift or treat here is my recipe.  I have added alternate ideas for making it all from scratch.


Irish Cream
1 2/3 cups whiskey
1 cup heavy cream
1 can (14 oz) sweet condensed milk or
   (1 can (14 oz) evaporated milk with 1/2 cup sugar dissolved)
2 TB chocolate syrup or
   (1 TB cocoa powder, 1 TB sugar dissolved in 2 TB milk)
1 tsp instant coffee disspolved in 2 TB warm water
1 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a blender or large bowl and mix well.
Store in glass jars in refrigerator up to 2 months.
Serve over ice or in coffee or any way you like.


Fresh Food

It has been a great year for strawberries and we have been busy picking and cleaning and freezing.  Oliver Farms had a great crop and thy will be having other products coming throughout the season.  Another local place, here is Smithfield, to get produce as well as bedding plants is Browder’s Farm.  It is so important to support local farms as well as other independent businesses.  So go to a Farmer’s Market this week and check out all the lovely selections, this is best time of year to get in the habit of eating well.
