Knowing how to cook corned beef is almost a mandatory skill if you have even a drop of Irish blood in your veins. Corned beef is a quintessential American Irish tradition, although many Americans only eat it once a year, on St. Patrick's Day. Corned beef was one of Ireland's main exports until 1825; County Cork was the largest producer for many decades. The British Army often survived on cans of it during their many and bitter campaigns across Europe. Today, however, corned beef is far more popular in America than it is in Ireland.
Every March, when St. Patrick's Day rolls around, people all across the United States start digging out recipes for how to make corned beef. Corned beef is a beef brisket cured in large grains of salt (called "corns," hence the name). While its association with the Irish holiday is cemented in American culture, corned beef and cabbage is not actually the national dish of Ireland. In fact, the average Irish diet didn't even include beef until the 1900s. Corned beef was a delicacy beyond the reach of most common folk, largely because salt was so expensive and also because in those days the Irish kept cattle primarily for dairy.

They're budget-friendly, super easy to work with and prepare, and they fall just shy of chips for being the preferred potato delivery system (certainly when it comes to an easy way to serve potatoes hot and delicious, there are few equals).

For better or worse, we often equate "healthy" with "light." The epitome of a healthy breakfast for many of us is the iconic half a grapefruit, or a bowl of fruit with yogurt. You don't get much "lighter" than that! While there's no doubt that fruit and yogurt are healthy breakfast choices, they're not especially appealing as the weather turns colder. For starters, fresh fruit isn't as plentiful, but more importantly: who wants to start a busy, chilly day with a stomach full of cold food? Thus the question becomes: can we eat "heavy" (i.e., filling) breakfasts thatread more
