Venison hot pot noodle bowl

Hello fellow food lovers,

I am hoping to get a back log of recipes (published weekly in our column for The Sunday Times) uploaded to the blog over the next few days.

I am back in final year of college and we just received our exam timetable yesterday. I am finished Semester 1 on December 14th … and have a few days of running around after that getting ready or Christmas before the kids get off school.

Come January I will be headed into my final semester of this four year undergrad and I am excited about just getting finished so we can take our life off hold and I can get back to ‘working’.


Mushroom Goetta for breakfast


I hope you enjoy the recipes. We are particularly fond of the Mushroom Goetta one as it reminds us of our former life back in Cinainnati where Goetta is a very popular breakfast dish. If you have not tried it, now is your chance! Ours is a veggie recipe so it is perfect for those of you that want a delicious savoury and nutritious alternative to the traditional Irish breakfast.

If you have any special recipe requests for Christmas, then send me a quick email ( and we will get cracking on it.

Those are all the WiseWords I have for today,

    • Hi Roisin,
      Thanks so much! I love schnitzel!
      All the toppings combined make it so tasty and even the kids love the
