Rachel's Recipes

  • Carrot & Coriander Soup

    While I was visiting County Clare a few years ago, I stopped for lunch at The Wild Honey Inn in Lisdoonvarna.

  • Spicy Butternut Squash, Potato and Carrot Soup

    This soup really was so easy to make. I like to add a little spice to my soups but you can of course omit these spices if you prefer.

  • Traditional Mince Pies

    One of my favorite treats  to eat at christmas time is none other than traditional mince pies made with a melt in your mouth pastry.

  • Apple & Irish Whiskey Tarts

     These desserts are ideal for a dinner party for 4. You can make this ahead of time.

  • Spiced Apple Chutney

    A jar of spiced apple chutney is perfect for the holiday's. Delicious with cold meats and cheeses.

     

     

  • Simply Bread

    I cannot for the life of me remember where I got this recipe.
