St. Patrick's Day Recipes

Pin ItAnd here we are. On the day before St. Patrick's Day -- one of my favorite days of the year!

At our house, that means one thing:  wrangling up all the Leprechaun charms we can finagle and whipping up a wee bit o' magic in the kitchen.

Every year we look forward to a bit of grand St. Patrick's day feasting, and we're always coming up with something new to add to the platter.  

Some years it's a new take on corned beef brisket, other years it's a new way with cabbage or potatoes.  This year we'll be celebratin' the green with good friends.  Our menu is likely to include a few of the following dishes, and probably something brand new.

Our special corned beef brisket: You'll love the delicious smell of the beer, garlic, and dill simmering away as the meat cooks. Even better, you'll love the deliciously flavorful & tender brisket that greets you right out of the oven.
 Reuben RisottoA new take on an old comfort food favorite.  All the flavors of a reuben sandwich come together in this creamy, delicious, risotto.  Just perfect for the leftovers from your St. Patrick's Day feast!
 Irish Whiskey CakeThis dense, buttery pound cake is flavored with a hint of lemon and plenty of Irish Whiskey.
 Stout Ice Cream with Irish Whiskey Caramel:  In this deliciously adult ice cream, the bitter notes of Irish stout are balanced nicely with a touch of sugar and the richness of cream.  We recommend serving it with a whorl of Irish cream caramel sauce -- a sweet treat that brilliantly marries caramel notes with the deliciously complex notes of Irish Whiskey, subtle chocolate tones, and a wonderfully creamy texture that assists in balancing the bite of the ice cream.

What are some of your favorite St. Patrick's Day traditions and recipes?
