All-Day Apple Butter

Rating: 4.5 stars 1250
Fresh apples cooked in the slow cooker for hours until smooth and buttery.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 650
This is an adaptation of an old Armenian recipe, and this variation is so delicious I can't stop eating it. It's a great way to stretch expensive seasonal asparagus and pricey cashews. It's great as a side dish or as a vegetarian entree.

Irish Potato and Chive Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 56
A new twist for mashed potatoes. I usually add a dash of onion and garlic powder. I also do a taste test prior to baking to see if they need more salt. Potatoes are combined with cream cheese, sour cream, chives, butter, and paprika...Delicious!!

A traditional Irish mashed potato side dish with leeks, cabbage, or kale.

Cream Cheese Colcannon

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
This is a great side dish for corned beef on St. Patrick's Day. It is very smooth and rich! The recipe came from my mother-in-law, who is first-generation Irish.

Easy Irish Colcannon

Rating: 4.5 stars 46
This Irish colcannon recipe is a traditional Irish potato dish that's very easy to make. Bear in mind that the UK and Ireland weren't exactly known for their cuisine, but for authenticity, this is what you want. For unauthentic but enhanced flavor, you can add bacon bits or Cheddar cheese, or both.

Spanish-Style Quinoa

Rating: 4.5 stars 219
This quinoa dish is a delicious and higher protein alternative to Spanish rice. This is a nice side dish to a Mexican meal, or it can be used as a filling in burritos. I like my food on the less-salty side, so you may have to adjust the seasonings to your taste.

Fresh Tomato and Rosemary Tart

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
This tasty and colorful fresh tomato tart is perfectly seasoned with rosemary and basil. It's just right for a summer brunch or supper.
