The very first wine me, dine me contest!

Yup! A contest. I have two free tickets to BlackFinn's Pre-Grand Opening party on Thursday, March 13. All you have to do is, in the comments, share your favorite St. Patrick's Day recipe. Only one entry per person, and I will pick a random entry as the winner on Monday, March 10th.

You're not eligible if you don't live in the Cincinnati area or if you work for Blackfinn Cincy (since I assume you'll be there anyway). You'll have to pick the tickets up from me before the 13th in a nice, public place. Otherwise, have fun! I look forward to your recipes.

Here's my favorite for Irish Herb Scones!

1/2 lb starchy potatoes
4 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage

Boil or bake the potatoes, then mash or use a ricer. Mix the flour, salt, oil & herbs with the potatoes. On a floured board, roll this dough to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Cut into triangles 3 or 4 inches wide.
Fry in very hot oil on both sides until light golden.

Enjoy!

Corned Beef and Cabbage
(My mom's traditional!)

Ingredients:
1 corned beef roast with spice packet
1 head green cabbage
1 lb. russet potatoes, peeled

Buy a corned beef that is packaged with a packet of spices included. Put this into a crock pot (the beef, and open the packet of spices and throw it in). Cover with water, turn crock pot on and cook about 5-7 hours on crock pot setting. The last hour, I throw in a fresh cabbage that is cut into large wedges, and I peel potatoes, put them into the water around the beef, lay the cabbage wedges on top. Mmmmm, when it’s done, it’s so tender, and the potatoes and cabbage are just saturated with the flavor of the cooked corned beef; Also, makes great sandwiches the next day (the beef, that is!)

Potato Pancakes

Easy peasy but so darn good!!!

Leftover mashed potatoes (they need to be a little stiff; if not, you'll need to whisk in a beaten egg)
Olive Oil

Heat oil over medium heat in heavy skillet. Form leftover mashed potatoes into patties using approx. 1/2 cup of potatoes. Saute patties on each side. Enjoy!!

Garlic mashed potatoes are the best!
