  1. I had so much trouble thinking of something to post for St. Patrick’s Day. These recipes all look far more inspired than what I settled on.

  2. WOW, Averie!!! This is wonderful! Thanks for sharing such a great array of beautiful recipes from yourself and so many other great bloggers! Now to decide what to make…happy weekend!!!

  3. What a delicious looking post! I have been thinking about those mint chocolate Oreo fudge bars for days and my husband has requested Irish soda bread (I have to give Bridget’s a try–it calls for buttermilk and I’ve always used yogurt). I also have a nice head of savoy cabbage, so I guess I’ll be doing pretty well with Irish and green themed food today. Congratulations on your recipe features–we give the homemade Bailey’s a big thumbs up!!

    • I have a GREAT bread coming this week that if you want to hang on til Wednesday, it’s along those lines. It’s soda bread-ish but enhanced and you’re going to love it. I wish I had gotten it posted before the holiday but it will go out this week on Wed. if you wanna wait but otherwise, can’t go wrong with hers.

      Glad the homemade Baileys gets a big thumbs up!

  4. Wow, recipe overload here! Great inspiration! We’ve never been huge St. Patrick’s Day celebrators, especially since it’s a Sunday this year. Hopefully I’ll remember to wear green! :-)

  5. Yum! Those all look DELICIOUS! I have a mint chocolate green protein smoothie planned for my blog tomorrow! I also was in Ireland in September and made a delicious Healthy Irish Soda Bread to go with the post I did on our time in Ireland – here’s the link –

  6. I’d be happy with just one big bottle of that homemade Bailey’s!

  7. So SOO so many options!? How does one choose? I think I’ll just take a jug or two of Bailey’s ;)

  8. I think I just ate a million calories through my computer screen and it all went straight to my hips! BUt who cares? It’s St. Patty’s Day! It’s a good excuse to indulge in things sweet AND savoury AND green! Happy St. Patty’s Day! Hope you have a good one!

  9. WOW! So many options! I love them all! I made some Chocolate Irish Cream Donuts that are so amazing!! For some reason I am really feeling the donuts and ice creams!!

  10. Thanks for the link!! I love this round up, it’s fabulous :)

  11. Everything looks so good, wish I was going to a party that served all of these goodies!

  12. Right now I really regret that I don’t have my kitchen around during this year St Patricks day.

  13. Whoa, what an incredible bunch of St. Patty’s Day recipes…I should have waited till after breakfast to view them all. Now I want your Oreo fudge bars instead of toast :) Off to find something green to wear to yoga this AM….
