St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

St. Paddy’s Day Eats – “Shepherd’s Stew”

Thanks to a brilliant idea from Ryan, I turned our Irish Steak and Stout Stew into Shepherd’s Pie last night.  I was going to top the stew with pastry crust and make Colcannon to serve on the side.  After making the stew and mashing the potatoes Ryan asked if it would be crazy to just [...]

Adult Shamrock Shake

Adult Shamrock Shake

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve had a McDonald’s shamrock shake (or McDonald’s for that matter…), so I should write a disclaimer that this shake won’t taste exactly like the fast food version – it’s better!  Adding some booze makes it an “adult” shake, and a perfect treat for the holiday.

Irish Whiskey Cake

Irish Whiskey Cake

I used to love me some Irish coffee.  Now I stick to coffee with whiskey (hold the cream), or I make my own with non-dairy cream at home.  When I tasted the batter for this cake, it reminded me of my beloved boozy beverage and instantly transported me to the last time I was in [...]

St. Paddy’s Day Meal

St. Paddy’s Day Meal

We normally don’t make a special dinner for St. Patrick’s Day but for some reason I felt like doing it this year.  I made the Irish soda bread recipe from Have Cake Will Travel.  It was super easy and very tasty, especially slathered with Earth Balance.  And like promised, it’s not at all dry.
