Mum's Irish Apple Pie
Wow! I've made apple pie in the past with very little luck at making a really good dessert. This one was just perfect! My guests raved about it! They were so impressed at its sweetness that they compared it to other homemade pies made with tart apples, saying that mine was the sweetest ever (and I made this pie with Granny Smith apples)! I loved how simple this pie was to make, and I will definitely repeat it from now on! I may make just one change to the original recipe and stir the filling together before placing it in the crust to create more of a sauce, but that would be my only change if I tried it. This was just right for St. Patrick's Day!

Natalie's Amazing Irish Mashed Potatoes
Love this recipe! My guests for St. Patrick's Day loved this as well! I only made one change to the original recipe- I substituted minced garlic for the garlic powder. This potatoes were easy and so creamy! I've tried other mashed potato recipes in the past that guests liked, but this takes the cake! This recipe will be the only one I use from now on!

Guinness(R) Corned Beef
I have done a different Guinness corned beef recipe for the past five years, and everyone has always liked it. But this year, I couldn't find my recipe so I used this one (thinking it was the same). It wasn't the same as my original recipe; this one is MUCH better! The brown sugar gives the beef a fantastic glaze/crust that makes this meal so much more! It was so easy to make, too! I left it in my crockpot for four hours (only did a 2 lb. brisket), and it was perfect! My old recipe will never be used again. This one, however, will always be my corned beef recipe!
