St. Paddy&rsquos Day Recipes

Tomorrow is St. Patrick&rsquos Day&mdashdo you have your green clothes picked out yet?

Do you have your recipes picked out yet? Here are some suggestions for ya!

Irish Coffee. Dreamy, delectable, and a real problem on those years I give up booze for Lent.

Irish Hills Cupcakes. The only thing Irish about &rsquoem is that they&rsquore green&hellipbut the same can be said about the lime jello salad I&rsquom making tomorrow, and I&rsquom learning to forgive myself.

Irish Grilled Cheese. Irish cheddar, delicious rye bread, Irish mustard&hellipbliss!

Corned Beef & Cabbage. Now we&rsquore talkin&rsquo! I love this classic Irish-American St. Paddy&rsquos Day meal, and the balsamic reduction is so delicious on the cabbage!

Guinness Float! I apologize to all mankind for this one. So weird, so wonderful&hellipand vanilla ice cream isn&rsquot the only flavor that works. Try coffee, try cinnamon&helliptry dulce de leche (wow)&hellipjust try it!

Sunday Night Stew. Not a traditional Irish Stew, but it&rsquoll definitely work in a pinch! (If you&rsquod like to get a little more traditional, use lamb instead of beef.) This stew is scrumptious!

Marshmallow Pops! Cover them with any green sprinkle your heart tells you to use. Super cute, super quick, always fun.

Holiday Bark. Green M&M&rsquos, pistachios, green melting candy for a drizzle&hellipa St. Paddy&rsquos Day version would be adorable.

That&rsquos all for now! I&rsquoll have a quick little green recipe to share tomorrow&hellipbut meantime, hope you find something here to whip up tomorrow.

"Personally, I don't really like potato soup, and I have tried a lot of them. But I was surprised at how good this was."

Guinness Jello Shots in Tiny Beer Mugs (Because OMG)

How adorable are these? They’re Guinness jello shots with a Baileys Irish Cream jello (foam) on top, very similar to the car bomb shots(see below) but minus the Jameson. Stock up on tiny beer glasses and probably tiny spoons because these are going to be a huge hit. Get the detailed instructions over at 1 Fine Cookie.

Rainbow Jelly Shooter

Because at the end of every rainbow is a pot of gold right? Well, you will probably be seeing gold everywhere after you munch on a handful of these. These Rainbow Jello Shots may be adorable, but each layer also comes with a cup of vodka. You’ve been warned.

Jameson Jello Shots

For those of you that like to keep it simple and classic, there’s nothing like a good old green jello shot made of Jameson. Get the recipe at Sugar and Charm!

St. Patrick’s Day Shots

Get festive and layer up those jello shots like the Irish flag! This is a holiday to celebrate your Irish heritage afterall. Grab the recipe and tips on making them look awesome right here.

Car Bomb Shots

We had to hit all the classics and it’s not a St. Paddy’s Day shot round up without your car bombs. These car bombs are of the gelatin variety though and they are amazing. Make a double car bomb jello shot recipe and pin it to save for next year too.

St. Patrick's Day Green Velvet Cupcake Shamrocks

The old-fashioned boiled frosting for these Emerald Isle green cupcakes is creamy and fluffy.

Pot of Gold Cake

This sparkling cake may look ordinary, but cut into it and you&rsquoll find a show-stopping surprise: an overflowing sea of golden M&Ms.

Chocolate Stout Ice Cream Floats

Top a coffee liqueur with seltzer and stout before adding scoops of chocolate ice cream.

Lucky Charms Cheesecake

We use a triple dose of cereal &mdash in the crust, steeped in milk for the filling and on top to decorate &mdash in this over-the-top rainbow cake.

St. Patrick's Day Mint Schnapps Shakes

A grown-up milkshake, this pale green delight is perfect as a midday treat or after-dinner dessert. It's only as good as the ice cream that goes into it, so splurge on a really high-quality one.

Irish Cream Poke Cake

This poke cake is spiked with the flavors of Irish coffee for an easy adult dessert that will feed a crowd.

Rainbow Slice-and-Bake Cookies

Leprechauns small and large are sure to fall under a magical spell when they take a bite out of these fantastical cookies. To make the wispy clouds, melt one cup of white candy melts in the microwave and pipe away!

St. Patrick's Day Green Velvet Layer Cake

Skip cream cheese frosting in favor of old-fashioned boiled frosting for this layered cake.

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

Say hello to these super-fun, double-marshmallow treats. Not only are these crunchy bars coated in a marshmallow-butter mixture, but the small, colorful ones from the cereal box are the perfect decoration.

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

The flavor of Guinness melds perfectly with chocolate to make rich, tender cupcakes. As an added presentation bonus, cream cheese frosting looks like Guinness's iconic foam.

St. Patrick's Day Lime Poke Cake

This beloved dessert is made of not-too-sweet buttermilk cake and very lightly sweetened whipped cream. The cake tastes best just lightly chilled, so let it warm up a bit after removing it from the refrigerator.

Guinness Floats with Whiskey Whipped Cream

Ree whisks heavy cream, Irish whiskey and sugar together to make the delectable whipped cream that tops her Guinness floats. It's so delicious, we won't blame you if you scrape the bowl clean after making it!

Rainbow Bundt Cake

This whimsical rainbow cake doesn't require any special equipment &mdash just a simple Bundt pan. Dyed shredded coconut achieves those iconic ROYGBIV blocks of color &mdash so no painstaking decorating necessary.

Chocolate Beer Cake

Stout's malty and roasted cocoa notes are enhanced in this cake with the addition of malted milk powder and Dutch-process cocoa &mdash plus a syrup made with more stout. This sheet cake makes an ideal cake for grown-ups (served with a few pints, of course!).

Green Velvet Cupcakes

Everyone's favorite cupcake just got a St. Patrick's Day upgrade! With a touch of green food coloring in the batter and a shower of green sprinkles on top, there's no denying how lucky you are if you get to enjoy one of these sweet treats!

Irish Cream Jelly Shots

An old-school spiked coffee drink just got an update. These boozy jelly shots have everything the cocktail does &mdash coffee, Baileys and whipped cream. Cut them into squares or use a small shamrock cookie cutter for good luck.

St. Patrick's Day Mint Shakes

Milkshakes, like other simple concoctions, are only as good as their ingredients, so use high-quality ice cream and vanilla extract. Combining peppermint extract and vanilla ice cream gives the drink an extra-refreshing, minty flavor you wouldn't get from using regular mint chip ice cream.

Chocolate Stout Bundt Cake

Not all beer needs to go in a glass: Maybe it's just us, but we'd rather partake in stout when it's flavoring a rich chocolately cake.

Rainbow Cupcakes

These showstopping cupcakes are going to be the centerpiece of your St. Paddy's celebration. Layers of dyed cupcake batter make it easier than you think. And no one's going to be looking for a pot of gold when the rainbows is this sweet!

Guinness Sundaes

Take your sundae game to a new level with this super easy sypup made out of beer and sugar. You might want to bookmark this one because you'll want it year-round.

Pot O' Cold

What happens when you add homemade biscotti and ice cream to an Irish coffee? Magic. And this wonderfully seasonal take on the classic affogato.

Guinness Float

Make homemade Baileys Irish Cream and Irish whiskey-spiked ice cream to top off this Guinness Float.

For St. Paddy&rsquos Day!

I can&rsquot believe it&rsquos 2016, let alone March, let alone the middle of March&helliplet alone the day before St. Patrick&rsquos Day! Things are sneaking up on me left and right these days.

Thought I&rsquod share some St. Paddy&rsquos Day recipes below as I prep a new recipe for tomorrow. (Guinness Float for breakfast, anyone?)

Guinness Float! I just decided to start with the craziest thing on the list. Vanilla (or coffee&hellipor caramel) ice cream with Guinness stout poured over. Very weird and very tasty!

Irish Grilled Cheese. The secret&rsquos in the cheese. I want this for breakfast. Right now.

Corned Beef & Cabbage. I doctor up packaged corned beef and cook wedges of cabbage over a little Guinness just for kicks. A balsamic glaze gives it just the right kick.

Irish Hills Cupcakes. They&rsquore unapologetically green and they remind me of the ol&rsquo Irish hills.

At least what I&rsquove heard about Irish hills. I&rsquove never been there! Ha.

Irish Coffee. Speaking of &ldquoI want this for breakfast&hellip&rdquo

Sunday Night Stew. Throw in lamb instead of beef, and this hearty stew is just perfect!

And don&rsquot forget homemade Shamrock Shakes! These were made by my friend Jessica over on PW Food & Friends, and I pretty much need one of these right now.

Next, begin building the base for the Guinness stew gravy

Turn the pot down to medium heat and add the diced onions into your Guinness stew with another half teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Stir them occasionally, but let the onions caramelize until they're golden brown. This should take about eight minutes total. While you've been occupied with the onions, your steaks will have rested long enough. Now, cut each steak into one-inch cubes and be careful to save all the juice so it can be added back into the stew later.

Once your onions are gorgeous and golden, the tomato paste and garlic go into the pot to sauté for another minute or until the tomato paste has darkened.

St Patrick’s Day Centerpieces

Whether for your food or snack table or to display anywhere else in your St. Patrick’s Day party– you’ll want a standout center piece. And we have a few fun suggestions for you below:

14. Pot O’ Gold

Include a classic pot of gold, filled to the brim with chocolate gold coins. This timeless St Patrick’s Day centerpiece is a delicious star to any party.

15. Fresh Flowers and Green Balloons

For more elegant parties, consider tying green and gold or green and white balloons to a vase of seasonal flowers.

16. Green Cupcake Tower

Whether the party is full of kids or grown-ups, cupcake towers are appreciated by everyone. Get creative with your cupcakes and encourage everyone to take one before they go home.

17. Guinness Tower

Adult St Patricks Day party goers are sure to love a centerpiece made out of an array of Guinness cans and bottles. Include accents of gold coins or green beads to help make this centerpiece stand out even more.

The Perfect St. Patrick’s Day Party

It’s almost that time of year again, when everyone is Irish. Trust me, no one loves St. Patrick’s Day more than this redhead who holds an Irish passport and even married a man named Patrick, but as the years got on, I started to look on the holiday with a bit of disdain. Let’s face it, the drunk fest of loud and obnoxious throngs of people who can’t hold their liquor isn’t appealing to the normal adult.

But this holiday can still be one of the best times of the year, and a great way to insert a little life in a long stretch of time that doesn’t offer much to celebrate. The key is to have a party at home.

You can have the classic green beer, and even better you can choose whatever brew you normally prefer. It’s the simplest thing in the world to make. Just add a couple of drops of green food coloring (usually two will take care of a whole pint) and watch your beer take on the holiday hue without tasting any different.

This may make your local sommelier cringe a little, but let’s face it, not everyone likes beer. If you prefer your drinks from the vine, try a nice Riesling. The wine already has the faintest of green hues, and one tiny drop of food coloring will bring it full leprechaun luscious.

This dark, delicious brew will definitely not turn green for the big day, but it definitely holds its own as an Irish staple. Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease on a brewery in Dublin in 1759, and ever since his special dark beer has been the stuff of Irish legends. A little trivia: dark beers like this are known as “porters” because they first gained popularity among London’s street and river porters. Guinness was a pioneer in its choice to exclusively concentrate on brewing and perfecting this beer.

Irish whiskey

The final Irish classic. Whiskey drinkers will have their favorites, but for the non-whiskey drinkers this is a great drink to serve at the end of the night in the form of an Irish coffee: a mug coffee, a teaspoon of brown sugar stirred in with one shot of a whiskey and top with whipped cream, and you’ll have the perfect St. Patrick’s Day nightcap.

Irish soda bread

This bread that has become a St. Paddy’s Day favorite, is reported to have caught on in Ireland because of the need to make bread out of simple and cheap ingredients during hard times. The truth is this bread is both tasty and super easy to make, so definitely put some out for guests to snack on during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.

You’ll find one of my favorite recipes here, and more than 1,000 reviewers agree. This is a basic recipe, so you can dress it up on your own by adding raisins, cranberries, or maybe even a tiny leprechaun to treat it like a Mardi Gras king cake – whoever gets the piece with the leprechaun has to bake the bread next year!

Shepard’s Pie

This classic is a family favorite, and a great thing to make for a crowd at St. Patrick’s Day because it will help them soak up all that green beer and whiskey. I like to take the traditional recipe which you can find a good one here, and instead of making it as directed, do it small serving size ramekins, then you have individual servings that allow people to eat this hardy Irish meal and still circulate.

Bailey’s Irish Cream

Yes, this is indeed a drink rather than a food, but if you only view it as that you are missing the delicious succulence that is Bailey’s. The drink itself is sweet enough to be a stand-alone dessert. However, there are a plethora of recipes to make not just cocktails, but cookies, cakes, crumbles and other things. The official Bailey’s website brings you an excellent section of recipes.

Lucky Charms

Yes, not a food I serve my family, and not Irish, but a fun little twist on the evening since they have appropriated the leprechaun. Instead of little dishes of peanuts, or in addition to, you can fill little dishes of these around your party for guests to munch on and both kids and adults will love it.

The Playlist

If you are not familiar with this band, you should be. They were a punk band from the 80s. Originally their name was “Pogue Mahone” which is a rough approximation of the Irish Gaelic póg mo thóin, meaning “kiss my arse”. They have a great selection of songs to get your Irish party going.

The Cranberries

Moving from the 80s to more of a 90s vibe, this girl band is a great representation of the Emerald Isle’s musical talent.

I’m guessing I don’t have to introduce you to this band, but you should definitely include them on a St. Paddy’s Day playlist.

The Irish Rovers

I am mostly familiar with this band from the 60s era because of my parents, but it’s St. Patrick’s Day, you need some classics mixed in there.

Shamrock Green Velvet Cupcakes

For this fun St. Patrick's Day dessert, we colored the batter with green food coloring. Just for fun, color batter for one cupcake yellow and the rest a different color. Give a prize to the person who gets the cup of gold!
