A Entire Day of St. Patrick’s Recipes

Only a few more days until the holiday that holds a special place in my heart — St. Patrick’s Day! Being 50% Irish, I have always loved this day, even if it has become very commercialized. The holiday had such a large pull on me that I have considered #17 to be my lucky number since I was in elementary school.

Instead of throwing on a green bracelet or adding a green bow to your hair to avoid simply to avoid getting pinched, go a step further this year. Make each meal and snack festive by trying out these St. Patrick’s Day recipes.
