Must Follow Monday

Closet Cooking

Kevin from Closet Cooking has offered up several recipes for Corned Beef in the last few years, from the time-honored Corned Beef Dinner With Cabbage to the fun and easy Guinness-Glazed Slow Cooker Corned Beef. He also put together of roundup of more than a dozen other recipes to round out your Paddy’s Day meal, including Irish Lamb Stew and Chocolate Stout Cake With Bailey’s Cream Cheese Frosting. There’s no telling what he has up his sleeve for this year, but we’re sure he’ll top himself yet again.

A Teaspoon of Happiness

Irish Potato Candy is actually from Philadelphia, not Ireland, but the tradition was started by the city’s Irish immigrants. (And they don’t actually contain any potatoes; they just look like spuds.) Melissa from A Teaspoon of Happiness shares her family recipe for the seasonal treat, which mixes cream cheese, butter, and flaked coconut and then rolls them in cinnamon. Melissa also forgoes traditional corned beef for Corned Beef and Cabbage Tacos With Horseradish Cream Sauce.

Around My Family Table

Wendy from Around My Family Table focuses on the kid-friendly aspects of the holiday, with her St. Patrick’s Day Recipe Roundup, which includes 80 dishes from around the blogosphere. There are plenty of rainbow-themed recipes and even some leprechaun cupcakes. But possibly most impressive is Wendy’s very own recipe for Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread.

Chocolate Moosey

Ever since she traveled to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day in 2007, Carla from Chocolate Moosey has had a bit of the Irish caught up in her culinary spirit. Her 5 Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day includes such gems as Guinness Beef Stew and Irish Soda Bread. But she also has fun with Irish Cream and Pistachio Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies.

Family Fresh Meals

St. Patrick’s Day is not all Guinness and corned beef, as Corey from Family Fresh Meals proves with her Easy St. Patrick’s Day Lunch Ideas. Even the kids will get in on the holiday spirit with these fun ideas, such as a rainbow fruit skewer, lucky cheese four-leaf clovers, and green broccoli “pops.” But Corey hasn’t forgotten dinner, and has a goof-proof recipe for Crock-Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage. If you have any leftover corned beef, try her Corned Beef and Cabbage Quesadillas.

St. Patrick's Day Dinner: Corned Beef and Cabbage with Potatoes and Carrots

It’s that time of year when we all start thinking about the corned beef and cabbage we’ll be making for St. Patrick’s Day! When I was growing up in an Italian family of six, we all celebrated just like everyone else. Mom would make her corned beef and cabbage, and it was always delicious. She may have been Italian, but that didn’t mean she couldn’t make a great St. Patrick’s Day meal with the best of them. That’s how I learned to cook Corned Beef and Cabbage with Potatoes and Carrots, and I love it!   Read more >

Weekend Menu Planning: Irish Soda Bread and Other St. Patrick's Day Treats

Next week is St. Patrick's Day, so this weekend is the perfect time to make some Irish (or Irish-American) foods to celebrate. Even though much of what is called Irish soda bread in the U.S. is not really authentically Irish, it's still fun to make it this time of year. The varieties of soda bread are endless, so I hope the ones I'm spotlighting will tempt you to get in the kitchen. (And if cupcakes or cookies are more your idea of holiday food, look after the soda bread recipes for some ideas for those!)   Read more >
