Spinach, Feta & Garlic Pesto Flat Bread

Sunday, March 16, 2014


Though a thin crust may seem like just a vehicle for the toppings, this flat bread {flavored with spinach, garlic and feta} is actually very tasty on its own or as a simple cheese and/or pesto breadstick. For my St. Patrick's Day flat bread, I had fun using shamrock and other festive {green} toppings.

A naturally-dyed rainbow smoothie is proof that fruits and vegetables are fun and beautiful. The optional garnish of whipped cream clouds and gold chocolate coins turns a healthy snack into an even more festive treat.

Amidst the checkout chaos of paying for groceries with my 4 and almost 2-year olds, I started envisioning a naturally-dyed green jelly roll cake in the shape of a shamrock. And voilĂ ! Here we are a few days before St. Patrick's Day and my brainstorm image has come to life. You can enjoy your jelly roll in individual slices or arrange three slices per plate to make a festive St. Paddy's shamrock.

We don't have a shamrock cookie cutter so we improvised with green hearts and iced a stem on the plate. Spinach juice gave the powdered sugar glaze its beautiful natural green color.

Irish Soda Bread

With St. Patrick's Day still on my mind, I decided to make Irish Soda Bread. Irish Soda Bread is considered a quick bread because there is no yeast and therefore it doesn't need time to rise. Simply mix the ingredients together and bake it in a greased pan. The result is a large mounded loaf of bread with a golden, crusty exterior and a dense, scone-like interior.

Corned Beef Sandwich

The day after we had corned beef hash for dinner we made corned beef sandwiches for lunch with the leftover meat. I think we'll be having these again sometime in the near future because we definitely can't wait until next March!

Corned Beef Hash

When I was little, my family would always celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a feast of corned beef, boiled potatoes and boiled cabbage. For me, the meal was never that exciting. It was our traditional leftover meal on March 18, however, that was always my favorite: corned beef hash.

Corned Beef

Friday, March 12, 2010


St. Patrick's Day is approaching so I started thinking about corned beef. The funny thing is, corned beef isn't even a traditional Irish meal. According to some sources, it has become a traditional St. Patrick's Day meal in America because of the influence of the Irish-American population and the Irish immigrants back in the 1800's.
