Foodie Friday--March 14th

 Welcome to the March 14 Foodie Friday, where great food is always on the menu.
 
I've been cooking Irish goodies this week. If you are looking for recipes and tablescape ideas,
pop over to Cuisine Kathleen's 6th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl.
 
 
First, I'm sharing Bailey's Irish Cream Fudge with Pistachios.
I saw the recipe on my friend Butteryum's blog. Patricia's photos went viral, and you can still find them pinned like crazy on Pinterest. That's how much people love this recipe.
Since my kitchen is overflowing with pistachios, I just had to try Butteryum's recipe.
 
 
You can find the original recipe at  the fabulous Butteryum's blog. Patricia
adapted her recipe from Eat Good 4 Life.
 

Ingredients:

36 oz white chocolate chips, Ghirardelli brand,  3 bags
1 14 oz can sweetened condense milk, unsweetened is best
1/2 cup Irish cream liquor, more if you like
1/2 cup raw pistachios, chopped, more if you like

 Bailey's Irish Cream Fudge with Pistachios

36 oz white chocolate chips
1- 14 oz can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
6 Tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream
1/4 cup pistachios, chopped
1/4 teaspoon sea salt plus a few pinches of sea salt

 
 Spread aluminum foil on the bottom and sides of a 9" x 9" pan, then grease the foil (I used Pam).
Into a double boiler add white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, Irish cream, and salt. Stir over medium flame until the chocolate has melted and ingredients is blended. Remove pan from heat and add pistachios. Place mixture in the foil-lined pan and chill until set. Sprinkle the top with sea salt, if desired. 
 
Next . . .
Irish Whiskey-Pistachio Crusted Corned Beef
I don't have a recipe, just a procedure: braise the corned beef according to the directions on the package. Place brisket in a baking pan. Reserve 1/4 cup "braising" liquid.
In a separate bowl, make a glaze.  
36 oz white chocolate chips, Ghirardelli brand,  3 bags
1 14 oz can sweetened condense milk, unsweetened is best
1/2 cup Irish cream liquor, more if you like
1/2 cup raw pistachios, chopped, more if you like
 

Directions:

Lined a square pan, I used an 8x8 square baking pan, with foil paper and lightly grease it.
In a sauce pan, at low heat, pour all of the ingredients except pistachios. Stir constantly until chocolate has almost melted.
Turn off heat and continue stirring until chocolate is completely melted. Add pistachios and pour evenly onto prepared pan. Let cool until set. Remove fudge from pan and peal off the foil paper. Cut fudge into small squares.
Store fudge in a airtight glass container.

Irish Whiskey Glaze
 
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard or Dijon mustard
¼ cup light molasses
1/3 cup Jamison's whiskey
1/4 cup "braising water"
1/4 cup shelled, chopped pistachios
salt and pepper
Mix ingredients and spread onto the brisket.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes (or until glaze has thickened).
Remove brisket from oven. Cool slightly, then sprinkle
top of corned beef with pistachios.
Leftovers make an out of this world sandwich.
 
Finally, the easiest recipe I know:
 
Sea Salt Irish Cream Donuts
 
 
What You Need:
1 box store-bought donuts, plain--no icing
Bailey's Irish Cream
Confectioner's Sugar
Sea Salt
 
 
Whisk together the Irish cream and sugar. I don't have a recipe. I just
"eyeball" the sugar and cream, working with the ingredients until the mixture
is neither too runny nor too thick. Place the donuts on a rack and drizzle the icing over the tops
and sides. Sprinkle with French sea salt (to cut the sweetness a bit).

  9. I don't have a recipe but I wanted to thank you for your visit. Right now I am living on salads with salmon, yogurt, fruit and veggies so am trying to RESIST any temptations. However, that being said, those DONUTS are calling my name!!!!!!!!!!! Also we are leaving on vacation tomorrow so I know I will be tempted over and over. BUT, I will keep trying. XO

  10. I am so honored that you featured the Downton Abbey party I blogged last week, and I know that "Lady Mary" and Lord Grantham are going to be excited as they were responsible for this beautiful night. It really was fun!

    That was neat that Bandy could stream it for you. My friends in England hint and sometimes tell me things when I ask. I love it, too, and can't wait for each season. Ru or has it that Julian Fellowes has been in talks about a similar American series set in NYC. After reading a book on the Roosevelt family in that era which was fascinating, I think I would probably watch.

    Now to your recipes.... Yum to all! I love pistachios with anything and everything, and those recipes sound good! I am hosting a meeting here in April, and I am going to pass the sweets on to the food committee. I am the tablescape committee! And the gourmand committee. Maybe that is why I have ballooned out to a number that should not be allowed on the scales! LOL

    Happy Foodie Friday, Michael, and Erin Go Braugh!
