Are You following me on Pinterest? If not, I’d love to have you join in on all the fun šŸ˜‰ Click HERE to see my boards!

This year I’m really into traditional Irish recipes when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day. I’m sure my kids think I’m terribly boring for not dying anything green and making  rainbow topped cupcakes and what not(Hey, it could still happen). But I’ve been very interested in what foods are truly eaten over in that magical green land and have been making a lot of them lately.
