  1. SOOO many amazing recipes Averie! Thank you so much for linking up to my cupcakes. I love seeing all sorts of other recipes on here today! Those mint & fudge oreo bars will blissfully haunt my dreams until I make them myself one day. :) Happy St. Patty’s Day! We aren’t doing anything wild. In fact last night we did my SBA taxes lol! And today we are meeting with the wedding photographer!!!! woo!!! xoxo

  2. 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….

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

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

    1. You’re welcome and thanks for the marble link. I bought the board and pin. For what it is, it was so cheap & such a value I couldn’t pass it up! :)

  5. 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!!

  6. 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!

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

  8. 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! :-)

    1. Knowing you, I can see you making a green smoothie or juice, with a green sauce for some green veggies or something! :) Have a great weekend!

  9. 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!!

    1. 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!

  10. 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!!!

  11. 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.
