Here's Irish soda bread the old school way, with just flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. It's not baked, it's cooked on a griddle. Serve with butter and jam, or fry it up crisp in bacon drippings.
A hearty, hearty salad filled with veggies, lots of fresh herbs - basil, mint, and parsley - and a sprinkling of Parmesan and lots of crumbled feta. The pasta is cheese tortellini. Makes eight servings.
Having two different lettuces, Romaine and red leaf, is a nice touch in this hearty tossed salad. And there's a nice balance of soft and crunchy: tomatoes and mushrooms to sesame seeds and almonds. Colorful too.
