Any St. Patrick's Day recipes?   I found one for Irish Soda Muffins.   How about Baily's muffins? 

I also saw one for potato muffins.  Yikes.  

I like marking the holidays with something special.  Maybe kiwi's on the fruit plate?  Deli corned beef on a buscuit? 

Do you have a St. Patrick's Day special?

They did have the pregnant mams in the guiness ads there, full of vitamins and nutrients for the baby.

Irish coffee, Irish soda bread, and chocolate Guinness mousse.

A can of Guinness, 1/2 cup of sugar. Simmer for 40 minutes until syrupy. Add about a tablespoon of butter and use that as syrup... Guinness Caramel.

I also have a recipe for a guinness ganache, if you want to make fillings for "cookies" (as someone called... UGH!) I actually make one with a local coffee stout.

I've seen a billboard in Ireland that said "Guinness is Good for You"

Keep the bread. How about coloring some beer green!

Make bread, colour 1/3rd green, 1/3rd orange and 1/3rd leave white. Braid it and make an Irish challah and celebrate Ireland's Jewish community. Smiling

Interesting idea, but since there are like less than 2000 Hebrews living in Ireland that would be, well not quite Saint Patrick-ish... 

Tis a great slant on the heritage and history of Ireland of course! See we can market for them from over here. Smiling

Last year I made Irish soda bread (brown bread). It wasn't a huge hit. I think I ate most of it. I LOVE Irish soda bread with some lovely irish butter.

I make my aunt's soda bread but it's really not a big day here. Not even on a weekend is it big.
