Now I am not in any way Irish, but growing up my mom would always do something to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. We’d have green eggs and ham and she’d always add green food coloring to the milk and tell us that the Leprechaun came to visit. Now that I am older and no longer live at home, we don’t really do anything like that but with St. Patrick’s Day quickly approaching, I thought I would make a dessert for the occasion. In an effort to avoid eating all of what I made, I figured that I should probably make something that was easy to give away so I decided to make some cupcakes. When trying to determine what flavor to make I thought to myself “I love a hot cup of coffee with a splash of Irish cream so why not make that into a dessert?” The results were delicious.
A hot cheesy dip with bacon, sweet caramelized onions and Parmesan cheese.
Crispy fried mini tacos with chorizo, pico de gallo and cotija cheese.
A quick and easy veggie pork stir fry with ground pork, carrots, baby bok choy, onions and mushrooms.
Decadent chocolate cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling and white chocolate buttercream.
A spicy snack mix with cheese crackers, pretzels, rice cereal and peanuts. Perfect for the big game!
A bowl of comfort with prime rib, chili beans, fire roasted tomatoes and kale.
