I'm not much of a gardener so count me out on that tip, but I do love a good recipe.

My awesome boss visited Ireland over the summer and brought me back this cute little recipe book. Did I tell you my boss is all kinds of awesomeness?



Inside I found this cute potato pancake recipe I thought I'd share today called Boxty

250 g/9 oz raw potatoes peeled
250 g/9 oz mashed potatoes
250g/9 oz plain flour
good pinch bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
225 ml/8 fl oz buttermilk plus extra if needed
butter, for frying

Grate the potatoes into a colander lined with kitchen paper.
Press another paper on top and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
Mix in mashed potatoes.
Add flour, soda, and salt. Mix in enough buttermilk to make a soft batter.

Melt butter in frying pan. Drop in large spoonfuls of batter and cook each side for about 3 minutes until golden brown.
Serve like a crepe with stuffing of your choice.

As it happens, my Highland Sorcery series came to a conclusion with the final book that came out last month. I am going to miss writing about this time traveling magical family. Okay, an Irish recipe doesn't have much to do with Highlanders, but I didn't have a a recipe book from Scotland yet.

Anyway, look for the complete Highland Sorcery series at these retailers



My personal giveaway for 3 peeps will be a book of your choice in that series. All you have to do is head over to my Facebook page and leave a comment such as "Highland Sorcery Rocks!" or "Clover's books are Blooming Amazing!" (See what I did there?) That will let me know who is entered in my contest, while at the same time getting the Facebook deities to smile upon my page and get it seen by more of my followers. Win-Win. And if you leave a link on your Facebook page, telling people about any of my books, let me know in the comments below and I'll enter you twice.
