What we’d most like to find at the end of a rainbow
St. Patrick’s Day isn’t for everyone. They might get annoyed by the obligatory 4 a.m. whooping of tanked revelers or they generally don’t fancy liturgical feast days or maybe it’s an overall antipathy to the color green. We get that. But we’ll take any excuse to cook up some of our favorite Gaelic-inspired dishes like homemade corned beef
. The thing we’re most
looking forward to this morning — and think many of the aforementioned iconoclasts can get behind — is a giant Irish breakfast of fried eggs, double smoked bacon, sausages and toasted soda bread. Bobby Flay’s bountiful Luck of the Irish Brunch
(pictured above) is served family style, so it’s also an opportunity to hang out with people you love. Then maybe you’ll really start to feel lucky. And if you do plan on hitting back several adult Shamrock Shakes
today (we don’t blame you), a good amount of food in your belly could help soak up the alcohol.
What’s your favorite or least favorite part of St. Patrick’s Day?

Guinness Irish Stew by Jelly Toast5 Hot Links We’re Loving:
- March is the unofficial month to add Guinness to everything, and Jelly Toast’s Irish beef stew is just the place to start.
- While you’re cooking with beer, you might as well bake with it too. With a chocolate stout frosting, Cookies and Cups’ beer and pretzel chocolate chip cookies are a must try.
- What should you make for dinner tonight? Ooey gooey pepperoni pizza meatball hoagies by Lauren’s Latest.
- You can never have enough banana bread recipes. According to Shutterbean, adding olive oil and maple syrup will give your loaf a “good oomph/intriguing/what’s that in there? taste.”
- For the next taco night, try Naturally Ella’s sriracha marinated butternut squash and black bean tacos. Hold the meat — this recipe is feisty and full of flavor without it.
