Almond Cake with Apricot Brandy Sauce Recipe



3/4 cup Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk
1/3 cup each: apricot preserves and sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups flour, divided
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (7 oz) tube pure almond paste, crumbled
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Apricot Brandy Sauce

1/4 cup Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup peach brandy
1/4 cup apricot preserves

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter a 9-inch round cake pan; set aside. With a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy - about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, including yolk, beating well after each addition. Add the preserves, sour cream and extract and beat for 1 minute more. Stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; lightly fold almond paste into the batter. Spread evenly in prepared pan and sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the center of the cake is firm when the pan is lightly tapped. To prepare sauce, in a medium saucepan melt butter. Stir in brown sugar and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer over low heat for a few minutes more. Drizzle over cake slices. Makes 10 servings.

Butter Shortbread Petticoat Tails Recipe



1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
8 ounces (1 cup) cold Kerrygold Pure Irish Unsalted Butter,
cut into 3/4-inch pieces*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat the oven to 300 degrees F. Have ready a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Sift the flour, cornstarch and salt into the large bowl of an electric mixer. Add the sugar and mix on low speed just to blend the ingredients, 15 seconds. With the mixer running add the butter pieces and continue mixing until crumbs form and there is no loose flour, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla, mixing until large clumps form that pull away from the side of the bowl, about 15 seconds. Transfer the dough to the tart pan. Use the palm of your hand to press the dough evenly into the pan. Use a thin metal spatula to smooth the top. The dough will be 1/2 inch thick. Use a fork to prick the dough at 2-inch intervals. Use a small sharp knife to mark 12 even wedge-shaped cookies. Bake the cookies until the top is light golden, about 1 hour. Immediately use a small sharp knife to cut completely through the marked wedges. Cool the shortbread thoroughly in the pan. Remove the sides of the pan and separate the cookies. The cookies can be stored in a tightly covered container for up to 1 week.

Makes 12 large cookies

*If using Kerrygold Salted Butter, reduce the salt to 1/8 teaspoon.

Recipe: Potato Bites

For hot appetizers, a batch of cheesy Kerrygold Potato Bites stuffed with three different fillings is simple to make and perfect for an impromptu get together.

Potatoes:

15 (1 1/2-inch) yellow, white or red potatoes (about 2 pounds)
1 package (7 ounces) Kerrygold Dubliner or Blarney Castle Cheese, shredded, divided
2 tablespoons Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter
3 tablespoons milk
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Fillings:

Mushroom Herb: Melt 1 tablespoon Kerrygold Butter in a small skillet. Stir in 3/4 cup finely chopped wild mushrooms and 1 clove minced garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat for about 3 minutes, then stir in 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs.
Carrot Leek: Melt 1 tablespoon Kerrygold Butter in a small skillet. Stir in 1/2 cup minced carrots, 1/2 cup sliced and coarsely chopped leeks and 1 clove minced garlic. Cook and stir over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until carrots are soft, then stir in 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill.
Spinach Chive: Melt 1 tablespoon Kerrygold Butter in a small skillet. Stir in 1 cup finely chopped, lightly packed fresh spinach and 1 clove minced garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes to wilt spinach, then stir in 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives.

Place potatoes in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons water; cover and cook on HIGH for 10 minutes, stirring or shaking potatoes after 5 minutes. Drain water and let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut each potato in half. Using a melon baller or very small spoon, scoop out the centers into a medium bowl, leaving a potato shell. Mash potato then stir in 2/3 of the shredded cheese, the butter and milk. Place equal amounts into 3 bowls, then stir 1 filling into each bowl; season each to taste with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large baking sheet with foil. Place potato shells on baking sheet and spoon equal amounts of filling into each. Place a large pinch of remaining cheese on top of each potato and bake for 15 minutes or until tops are lightly browned. Serve warm garnished with parsley, if desired. Makes about 30 appetizers.

Try This Recipe: Salmon Puffs

For a festive New Year's Eve party, warm, flaky Salmon Puffs go perfectly with a nice bubbly champagne and a squeaky noise-maker.

Salmon Puffs

1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1 cup shredded Kerrygold Ivernia Cheese
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup creme fraiche
1 (4-ounce) package very thinly sliced smoked salmon
Tiny fresh dill sprigs

Fillings:

Heat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll puff pastry into a 14- X 14-inch square on a lightly floured board. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and pepper and cover with wax paper; press firmly into dough with a rolling pin. Cut dough into six equal strips vertically and five equal strips horizontally to make 30 pieces and place on baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Cool completely. (May be prepared a day ahead and stored airtight.) Spread equal dabs of creme fraiche on each puff. Top each with a small folded piece of salmon and dill sprigs. Makes about 30 appetizers.

Xpad Slim Laptop Cooler & Heatshield Review

One of the most common complaints that we read or hear about is how laptop users are burned by overheated systems. And I just happened to fall in this category. I would mainly use my laptop on the desk or table to prevent from getting burn. I had the opportunity to evaluate the Xpad Slim Laptop Cooler. And let me tell you how impressed I was. I laid the Xpad Slim Laptop Cooler on my lap and then put the laptop on top of it. I was impressed on how sturdy it was and also how my laptop stayed in placed the entire time I was using the Xpad Slim Laptop Cooler.

The Xpad Slim is a universal fit design that will accommodate laptops with up to 17 inch screen size. For small laptops (i.e. 13 inch screen size), the wider Xpad footprint will allow you to comfortably use your laptop on your lap without having to keep you legs tightly closed or having the edges of the laptop dig into your lap. The Xpad size is wide enough for comfortable use but slim enough to fit into your laptop bag along with your laptop.

The Xpad uses no fans as it utilizes 100% passive cooling! Fan-based laptop systems

can be noisy, damage your latop's USB port, and interfere with the natural airflow intended for your laptop cooling system. The Xpad Slim is a laptop heatshield that keeps your lap cool for an indefinite period. Its unique thermal insulation air pockets built into its ABS composite structure makes the Xpad Slim the ultimate laptop heat shield.Lastly, the Xpad Sim also features a Non-slip surface. In order to experience the comfort of a non-slip laptop on your lap you need to try it for yourself. The rubber ‘X’ top will keep a tight grip on your laptop so that it stays put even if you don't.

This will definitely be a good holiday gift to any laptop users in your family.

If you would like to make a purchase or want more information regarding the Xpad Slim Laptop Cooler, please visit their website.

MagicJack Review

Recently, I had the opportunity to review MagicJack, a USB-based VoIP service . I was intrigued how simple it was to installed it. All you have to do is to plug the device (pictured above) into a usb port of your internet-connected computer, then plug a phone into the other end of the device. wait for the downloading process to finished. You would need to register your phone number and 911 access. After this process a softphone screen (as pictured below) will appear on your desktop and you can begin to make phone calls.The first time I set it up, I lost access to the internet. Then, I tried it again and had no problems. Nevertheless, if you would like more information regarding the MagicJack or want to make a purchase, please visit their site.

About The Company:
Z. Daisy was launched by two stay-at-home moms in the spring of 2006. After years of buying pacifier clips and baby blankets as gifts and for their own children, Z. Daisy was born. Owners, Lorri Zander and Brooke Collins set out to make baby items that are unique in design and presentation. Z. Daisy stated with a wider variety of items and has now streamlined to their best sellers in the baby market and are now focusing on expanding into girl's accessories as well as bringing more organic and eco-friendly products into their line.
I had the opportunity to review the Eco-friendly Go Green! Binkie Bungee (as pictured above). It's very soft and cute. One end is a clip and the other end loops through the handle of the binkie/pacifier. The end that has the clip on it has a non-sliding, firm grip on clothing. This would be great for children who like to pull on the Binkie Bungee.

These unique pacifier clips come in 10 different fabric designs. Everything from traditional baby pink to hip camo. Z. Daisy even has 3 stripes that are exclusive prints! All of the designs are made from plush minky fabric. In addition, the Binkie Bungees are safety tested and now have a universal attachment so they will work with any pacifier.
This will definitely be a good baby shower gift or a good holiday gift for your little ones! Can't wait for the giveaway? If you would like to order a Binkie Bungee or view their other products available online, visit Z.Daisy and make a purchase today!
