Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary

by Pam on December 1, 2013

This drink is inspired by my sister who was enjoying a delicious Bloody Mary with a Cilantro and Lime Vodka while I was talking to her on the phone the other day. I decided to grab the ingredients and serve these drinks to our dinner guests who were coming over that night. These drinks were fun to make and tasted fantastic! I love that you can tweak your drink to suit your tastes – my husband and his friend like using Clamato juice while my friend and I liked using V8 juice. We all enjoyed the drinks and thought they were super tasty – thanks Dana!

Fill a large glass with ice cubes. Pour the vodka into the glass followed by lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, freshly cracked black pepper, to taste, Tabasco sauce, and horseradish sauce. Pour the tomato juice over the top then carefully mix REALLY WELL with a spoon. Taste and re-season if desired. Place a pickled asparagus spear and green bean into the drink followed by a few olives and a lime wedge. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

Gordon Ramsay’s Cottage Pie With Guinness Recipe To serve…

Gordon Ramsay’s Cottage Pie With Guinness Recipe

To serve 6 you will need:

a large pie dish
2 tbsp olive oil
900g good quality (low fat) minced beef
sea salt and black pepper
3 medium onions, peeled and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
a few thyme sprigs, leaves only
2 nice fat plum tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons of tomato purée
330ml bottle of Guinness
5 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
300ml chicken stock (I used fresh home made chicken stock) but you can use a Knorr stock cube
1 kg floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, peeled and roughly cubed
50g butter a handful of grated cheddar, plus extra for the top of the pie
1 large egg yolk
plus a good handful of cooked peas and carrots if you fancy

How to do it:

Put a large frying pan over a high heat and add a thin layer of olive oil. Season the mince with salt and pepper and fry, stirring, in two or three batches, until nicely browned.

Drain off any fat, although you shouldn’t really have worth worrying about if you used good quality mince.

Put the cooked mince into a bowl and set aside.

In the same pan you just used, put it over a medium-high heat and add a little olive oil. When it’s nice and hot, fry the onions, with the garlic for a few minutes until until soft and golden.

Now add the thyme and cook for another minute or so.

Add the browned mince, tomatoes and tomato puree. Stir constantly for 4-5 minutes.

Add the Guinness and Worcestershire sauce and boil until the liquid has reduced by half. Pour in the stock and return to the boil.

Turn the heat down and simmer for 20-25 minutes, by which time the mixture should be lovely and thick and glossy.

Continue to simmer for another 5-10 minutes if it doesn’t seem quite thick enough. Once done remove it from the heat.

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F or Gas 4

Meanwhile, add the potatoes to a pan of salted water, bring to the boil and cook until tender. Drain and return to the hot pan for 15 seconds or so, to dry out, then take off the heat.

Pass the potatoes through a potato ricer back into the pan or mash smoothly. Mix through the butter, cheese and egg yolk.

Taste and adjust the seasoning.

Put the cooked peas and carrots into the bottom of the dish if you are using them and then spoon the mince mixture on top.

Spoon the mashed potato on top and rough up the surface with a fork.

Grate over some extra cheese and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until bubbling and golden brown.

Cottage Pie with Turkey

Cottage Pie with Turkey

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

One of my favorite meals to celebrate  St. Patrick’s Day is Cottage Pie[1]. It’s usually made with ground beef, but because we are trying to eat healthier around here, I decided to try one with ground turkey instead. I found a terrific recipe from the Food Network Kitchen[2] that looked great. I adapted it just a bit by doubling the recipe, adding a touch of Worcestershire sauce, and using russet potatoes instead of red potatoes. It was a comforting, delicious, and guilt free dinner. I served this cottage pie with my House Salad[3] and we all enjoyed our meal.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Place the potatoes in a medium pot and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until tender when pierced with a knife. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot over low heat. Stir the potatoes for a couple of minutes to dry them out. Add the milk, butter, cheese, and green onions, then mash with a hand masher until smooth. Season with sea salt and white pepper, to taste.

Heat the olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots and onions; cook until tender and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and thyme, and continue to cook, breaking the turkey up with a spoon, until the turkey is cooked through and lightly browned. Add the minced garlic, and cook, for 30 seconds then add the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce then cook until lightly caramelized. Stir the chicken broth and flour together in a small bowl until smooth, and then pour into the skillet. Cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Coat the baking dishes with cooking spray. Ladle the turkey mixture evenly into the baking dishes. Spoon the mashed potatoes over the filling.

Place into the oven and bake until the potatoes are lightly browned and the turkey filling is bubbly around the edges, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with Green Onions.

Let the cottage pies cool for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy.
