It had been on my mind for years to make a Spanish tortilla, which is nothing like the tortillas familiar to most Americans. It’s basically a frittata that features potatoes.
When I collect recipes, they often languish for a while (sometimes years) before I try them. Witness my 16 three-ring binders packed with untried recipes. But not this one. We recently defrosted our basement freezer and came across a package of chicken sausage among the forgotten treasures. Then I found this recipe on Pinterest.
Scallops, mild and succulent, are among my favorite seafoods, but they can be expensive. I jumped at the chance to buy a pound of frozen bay scallops at a great price.
I have a bit o’ Irish blood in me, so I’ve made colcannon for St Paddy’s Day before. But this year I wanted soup, so I came up with this. It was tasty, defying the unfortunate reputation Ireland has for bland food. And who doesn’t like potatoes?
