Stacy Evans, the blogger behind A Simple Life Inspired is writing a series of E-books called Sabbat Cooking. Each E-book contains recipes themed specifically for each Sabbat. At the moment she has one out for Samhain and one for Imbolc.
I purchased Stacy’s E-book through her blog and it is also availble through Wyrdwood Publications for just $5. The E-book is a total of 56 pages. No skimpy amount. The recipes types and totals come to:
- Appetizers: 12
- Sides: 6
- Main Dishes and Soups: 11
- Desserts: 5
- Miscellaneous: 1 (a recipe for butter)
Brigid Braid Bread
This recipe was Delicious!
My guests were raving about it. The recipe is very simple to follow even if you’ve never made bread before. It has a nice assortment of herbs in the dough to give it a great flavor. Each bite left no question that this is an herb bread. The instructions for the egg wash on top ensured that the bread had a gorgeous golden crispy crust. It wasn’t too thick either as to be tough to eat. Lil ‘R kept trying to steal more too!
I will definitely make this recipe over and over again.
Sour Cream Chicken & Garlic Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes
The Sour Cream Chicken was Wonderful.
I was a bit worried about it. I thought that the coating on the chicken wouldn’t crisp up well in the oven and it’d be a bit mushy. I was completely wrong. The coating has a lot of flavor due to the seasoning added and it coats the chicken really well.
The Garlic Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes though I had to add some things to. As the recipe is written it was a bit blan and very thick. All it took was some salt and milk to make it work. The idea of using cream cheese is great though, definitely one I’ll think about using in the future.
As an bit of clarification I’m a bit of a mashed potato connoisseur of my family. Every holiday I’m always the one in charge of potatoes.
Over all though I really like these recipes. I can’t wait to try my hand at making my own butter and for the entire E-book only being $5 it’s a great value.
Other recipes I’m anxious to try from the book are:
- Bake Potato Soup
- Perogie Casserole
- Potato Pancakes
- Slow Cooker Creamy Cheese Soup
