There may have been a lack of St. Patrick's Day parades this year, but don’t let that stop your holiday spirit!
Here are 5 easy recipes to help you bring the green celebration into your home.
So cue up Dropkick Murphy's and let's get cooking!
1. Irish Soda Bread
Whether it be toasted with butter and jam or dipped in your favorite stew, Irish soda bread is a must for St. Patrick's Day.
The bread's mild flavor and fluffy texture makes it a perfect pair with jam, jelly, nut spreads, and everything in between. While traditional soda bread is made with raisins, you could always switch it up and add craisins, dried blueberries, or chocolate chips for a sweeter flavor.
