17 creative, unique, and absolutely delicious-looking recipes to make St. Patrick's Day a major culinary success with family and friends at your house.
It's time for some cold, hard truth. You may judge me. You may even dislike what I'm about to say. Ready? You may want to sit down for this...
I am not a fan of St. Patrick's Day.
I'm not against it. It's not that I have something against the Irish or the color green. I just have no connection to it. We never celebrated it growing up. And I have never experienced a soda bread or corned beef and cabbage dish that got my taste buds truly excited.
Sorry if I'm crushing dreams here.
But then I started looking at Pinterest and a bunch of my blogging friends' recent posts. And you know what? There are some really great looking St. Patrick's Day recipes out there! Like, these recipes get me excited to put on some green, slap on one of those "Kiss Me I'm Irish" buttons, and start talking like a leprechaun.
So since my life is so void of any St. Patrick's Day cheer, here are some recipes I'm thinking of trying out for the big day...
I trust Sandra when she say's this is the best gluten-free irish soda bread recipe... most likely she tried a ton of them before coming to this soda bread eureka.
How good does that guinness glaze look?! I want to add that to everything!
I've never thought of adding avocado to egg salad before, but it makes so much sense! Can't wait to start doing this whenever I feel like I have the patience to peel all those shells (one of my least favorite kitchen tasks, haha) ...but that's why I have my sous chef (Asheley) do that for me 🙂
Stews are pretty fantastic, and this one looks meaty, hearty, and absolutely delicious.
Did someone say bacon?!
I love tapas-style eating, and although I kinda don't like calling things "cute" (other than my adorable niece and nephew), these are pretty darn cute.
What really has to be said?! It's mac and cheese with corned beef... sold!
I've never made pull apart bread before, but this recipe is totally making me want to!
Corned beef surrounded by molten cheese and a generous helping of onions caramelized with some Guinness... does this not sound amazing?!
My extreme love for tacos is no secret. I love them. I love everything about them. And I want these tacos in my life this St. Patrick's Day. Period.
Consuelo always has great sounding recipes on her site that are decadent yet still a bit on the healthy side.
I am a huge fan of brownies. I am a huge fan of cheesecake. Put them together and I'm one happy guy.
I cannot believe my eyes... a BROWNIE milkshake! Oh heck yes.
I've been increasingly excited by cream cheese frosting and glazes lately. And you can never go wrong with chocolate cake. My waistline agrees.
Muddy Buddies are pretty darn addicting (case in point... these), and I'm loving this St. Patrick's Day version.
How gorgeous is this cake?!?! Anyone beside me want to dive head first into this photo and face plant into that cake?
Everything about this sounds amazing. Chocolate brownie ice cream. Whiskey whipped cream. Guinness chocolate sauce. Devour.
