No joke, St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. It’s one of those holidays that doesn’t evoke stress. Like Thanksgiving and Christmas, we serve a traditional meal to celebrate, but unlike those holidays, there’s no family stress or travel associated with it. In our family, it’s about food, drink, and fun.
It’s a double-edged sword though. Because it’s a casual holiday, it’s also one of those that sneaks up on me. That’s why I always keep these recipes in my arsenal. Even if I only have a couple days to throw everything together, one or two of these St. Patrick’s Day recipes are all we need to celebrate in style.
From the classic to the updated, from the savory to the sweet to the boozy, there’s a little something for everyone who wants to celebrate in fine Irish style.
