St. Patrick’s Day is a month away and I’m sharing some love of the Irish with a round-up of recipes, with inspiration from the kitchen to the table! And to help you get your green on, I have a couple of giveaways in celebration!
The first giveaway is a beautiful cookbook full of delicious recipes, Clodagh’s Irish Kitchen: A Fresh Take on Traditional Flavors:
With Ireland’s rich culinary history, it’s understandable that internationally recognized dishes such as Colcannon and Soda Bread should be representative of the country’s identity, but there is far more to discover about Irish cooking. Let Clodagh guide you through this tempting collection of 150 recipes―Potato Dumplings are reinvigorated with a Spicy Cashel Blue Sauce, while the famous Full Irish Breakfast is given a new lease of life as a tortilla. With everything from soups and stews to preserves and sophisticated dinner party dishes, Clodagh’s Irish Kitchen is a mouthwatering adventure around this sumptuous cuisine.
The drool factor is high in this cookbook! Here are a few of the recipes that tempted my taste buds:
Irish Coffee Cookies, Guinness Cake, Colcannon Soup with Parsley Pesto, Irish Lamb Stew with Pearl Barley, Beef and Guinness Pies with Chocolate, Wild Mushroom and Irish Ricotta Bruschetta, Salted Caramel Whisky Bread and Butter Pudding, Baked Oaty Pears, Irish Apple Tart, and Baileys Irish Soda Bread Ice Cream!
The second giveaway is a set of 6 pint Green Ball Heritage Collection Mason Jars.
You can use them for corralling napkins and flatware for a table for a Picnic on the Porch.
Fill them with some green and white flowers for An Irish Blessing Table
Give candy kisses and Kiss Me I’m Irish Cookies
Serve Fizzy Patricks to little leprechauns
Or use as a vase for some spring blooms!
