Theme for the March issue’s recipes is A Samplin’ O’ the Green 


ST. PADDY’S CABBAGE DINNER
Serves 6–8



1 medium head green cabbage, cut into 1- to 2-inch wedges
6–8 medium potatoes, unpeeled, washed and quartered
2 pounds smoked sausage, cut into bite-size pieces
Salt
Pepper
1 quart water
Crock-Pot (5-quart capacity or larger)



Add cabbage, potatoes and smoked sausage to Crock-Pot. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir all ingredients, then pour in 1 quart of water. Cover and cook on high setting for 2 hours, then on low setting 6–8 hours. Cabbage dinner is done when vegetables are tender. 


SHAMROCK GREEN BISCUITS
Makes 6–8 biscuits



2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1/2 cup farmer’s cheese (or small-curd, low-fat cottage cheese)
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup whole milk
7 drops green food coloring



Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a food processor (or a stand mixer with dough-hook attachment), combine flour, baking powder and salt. Process for 30 seconds. Add butter, shortening and farmer’s cheese, then process again, about 15 seconds. Add vinegar to the milk; stir, then add to dry mixture and pulse for 15 seconds, just until the dough sticks together—it will be tacky. Add green food coloring, and pulse for 5 seconds. Dough will be marbled, not fully colored green.
Flour hands, remove dough, place on floured cutting board, then shape into a ball by sprinkling with flour and kneading 20–25 times. Flatten the dough ball to stand about 1-inch high. Using a 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut into rounds. Place biscuits on a lightly buttered baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Serve with green butter.



Green butter:
1 stick butter
3 drops green food coloring
2 tablespoons fresh chives or other herb, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped



Process all ingredients in a small food processor. Spoon into a very small serving bowl, smoothing over with a spatula. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.


HYATT’S APPLE COLESLAW
Serves 6–8



1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 cups green cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 cup red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 medium carrot, grated
2 green onions, trimmed and finely chopped
1 red apple, cored and chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, with peel on, cored and chopped 



In a large serving bowl, combine mayonnaise, brown sugar and lemon juice. Add all remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes or until ready to serve. Add additional mayonnaise if desired. If desired, add more brown sugar to lessen the onion flavor.


RUTH’S REFRIGERATOR COOKIES
Makes 3–4 dozen



1/2 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg, well beaten
2 cups cake flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup pecans, chopped (or favorite nut meat)



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Add egg and incorporate well.
In a separate bowl, sift together cake flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt, then stir into butter and sugar mixture. Stir vanilla and pecans into dough.
Knead on lightly floured surface, then form dough into a log, wrap in waxed paper and chill overnight in the refrigerator.
Slice into 1/8-inch thick rounds, and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake 10–12 minutes. When baking two sheets at one time, transfer one cookie sheet from lower rack to the upper rack and the other cookie sheet from upper rack down to lower rack after five minutes, then continue baking.

These look to be fun and I like the theme - I'll try for the cabbage dinner and the shamrock biscuits.

I usually have this with corned beef but the sausage was a nice twist!

Woops - I missed the potatoes being unpeeled. Those are perfect, Fudio!


My shamrock biscuits are a total disaster so I guess it's not my month!

Thanks jeangill. Lucky for me I'm a lazy cook and never peel my potatos anyway. Otherwise I'm sure I would have missed that too.


If it's any consolation my biscuits were terrible too but I think I'll give it another shot anyway!

I took some liberty here before baking with egg wash and broad leaf parsley.

Can I clarify? Biscuits means cookies to me, but these look like what I'd call scones - I think I've had one of those US/European misunderstandings? I might try again!

Jeangill it's just as likely that I'm the one who misunderstood. Perhaps my first attempt wasn't as bad as I thought either...perhaps some North American/European clarification is in order.

I have only worked on the Refrigerator Cookies and have put three in the queue so far.  Please be gentle with me.  It's my first time!       I've had three accepted so far and a fourth is still in the queue, so I'll add that one later.

Thanks dsmoulton,

I love the lighting on your horizontal dinner. Good idea doing a before and after; the colours are great!
