Recipes | Feast and Merriment

Recipe Collection


elow is a collection of recipes that have been published on Feast & Merriment dating as far back at 2007, when I first started this little blog site.

I want you to know that you can trust these recipes, because I do. In fact, that’s why I started Feast & Merriment. I wanted to place to reference my favorite recipes, whether created by me or by another author, so I could refer back to them and trust them because I enjoyed it enough that I took the time to write about it.

I have tried each one of these recipes over and over and am confident in them.  After all, publishing recipes for others to rely on is not something I do lightly.

I am humbled by the fact that everyone from close friends to unknown digital followers turn to me for advise on what to cook and how to do it.

I share this personal reflection with you because I want you to know that you can trust the recipes I have published across this site. They are here for me, and for you. The only thing I ask in return is if you had a great experience with a recipe you found here, please leave a rating and review so others are also inspired to feast!


Candied Pecans

These sweet and spicy pecans are perfect to serve with cocktails or over vanilla ice cream! They also make a great homemade gift.

Fettuccine with Truffle Butter and Mushrooms

This dish brings me the greatest joy to make, and to eat. It’s rich, decadent, and has the ability to silence every diner at your table. Indulge just once and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Oysters “Rockabrett”

These decedent roasted oysters are served right out of the shell and will make you feel as “Rich as Rockefeller” while eating them!


Semi-homemade Tortilla Soup

Frontier Tortilla soup mix is by far, my favorite pre-packaged food. The quality of the dried vegetables is so impressive that they actually taste farm fresh. And yet, it’s no work at all Serve with melted cheddar and tortilla chips for an impressively tasty meal!

Shepherd’s Pie

If you hail from the UK, I’d wager to guess that you’d say Shepherd’s Pie is the ultimate comfort food. And you’d be right. This recipe is layered with rich, savory flavors that will keep you going back for more until it’s all gone.

Herb Roasted Turkey Breast

The combinations of herbs in this recipe create a really wonderful savory crust that is simply delicious! The best part is that anyone can make this turkey- it’s that easy!

Side Dishes

Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda bread is a magical bread! It is the perfect amount of both sweet and savory. It is light, but dense. It’s a lot of things to a lot of people, but the one thing that is absolute is that it is delicious and not be left out of a St. Patrick’s day celebration meal.

Spiced Apple Chutney

This recipe for Apple Chutney is full of sweet and spice and everything nice! Perfect to serve with a sharp cheddar cheese or a fall pork roast.

Potato Salad with Summer Herbs & Vinaigrette

Fresh herbs are tossed with warm potatoes, champagne vinegar and white wine to come together for a fabulous summer side dish.


Apple Crostata

This Apple Crostata is so much easier to make than apple pie and loaded with wonderful, should warming flavors. It’s a quintessential rustic dessert and I just love that.

Berry Crumble Bars

Ina’s Raspberry Crumble Bars are the perfect combination of savory and sweet and have become one of my favorite recipes to make. I prefer mixed berry jam to raspberry but the results are stunning no matter what jam you choose!

Candied Pecans

These sweet and spicy pecans are perfect to serve with cocktails or over vanilla ice cream! They also make a great homemade gift.
