The Irish Table in Cannon Beach, OR

The Irish Table in Cannon Beach

The Irish Table 1235 S Hemlock Cannon Beach, OR 97110

This place is quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants on the Oregon Coast. We’ve been twice in the last six months and honestly, I would be okay sneaking another two dinners in before the end of the year. Definitely okay with that. They’re located in the back of Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters and it’s actually pretty perfect — there for coffee drinks in the AM and back for dinner in the PM.

FFwD: Navarin Printanier

lamb stew

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is Navarin Printanier, a Spring Lamb Stew. Because of the long cooking time involved, it didn’t seem like a very practical weeknight meal, but I decided to make it most of the way Thursday night (tonight!) and we’d have it for dinner Friday. So far, this plan seems like a very good one! Of course, I can’t talk about how much I like it yet, but at least I made the deadline.

It smelled really, really good while cooking and I like how the vegetables are caramelized before . . . → Read More: FFwD: Navarin Printanier

Lemon Poppy Seed Oat Scones

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

This was a true experiment as I tried a couple of different things that I had no idea if they would work out at all. Thing number one: I used a 1/3 cup of oat flour (to 2/3 cup AP flour). Thing number two: I subbed half the butter with olive oil. Did this make a healthier Lemon Poppy Seed Scone? Yes I think so. And were they still very good? Yes! They were actually pretty delicious! I think I’m going to make these again very soon.

Spicy Chicken Thighs with Rhubarb-Cucumber Salsa

Spicy Chicken with Rhubarb Cucumber Salsa

Oh! This was tasty and very seasonal. And I always forget how much I love chicken thighs and then we have some and I’m like, “Wow! I love chicken thighs!” and then I kind of forget again. Well, not this time.

Now, the rhubarb salsa is a little bitter, so it’s not necessarily delicious on its own but it really works with the golden, spicy chicken.

Tea-Marbled Deviled Eggs with Soy Balsamic Mayonnaise

Tea Marbled Eggs

Hey! Look! It’s another egg post. This was an experiment from Easter that I think turned out quite well. I wanted to do something with eggs, but not necessarily dye them so I went with tea marbling, which I’ve always wanted to try. After peeling them and marveling at the marbled design, I decided to turn my Tea-Marbled Eggs into deviled eggs.

And even better, I had everything at home to make them (even the Lapsang souchong tea, as I used to work at a tea company and still have TONS of . . . → Read More: Tea-Marbled Deviled Eggs with Soy Balsamic Mayonnaise
