Rave Review!
Diane's Colcannon
I served this over the weekend when my Irish mother-in-law came for a visit. Not only did she love it, everyone did--even my two very picky teenage boys!

An Irish Breakfast
Maybe you'll make this on St. Patrick's Day, or maybe you'll make it the morning after, depending on how much the Guinness flowed. Whenever you make it, though, an Irish breakfast always satisfies.

Food Lovers' Trivia Tidbit
It may not be the most traditional of Irish dinners, but corned beef is the dish for St. Patrick's Day in the U.S. It's a great choice to serve with cabbage and potatoes this March 17th.

Made by blending scallions or green onions with creamy mashed potatoes, this is great on its own or as a perfect side dish.

This stew is great for St. Patrick's Day. The mixture of the beef and Guinness is awesome! I usually add more beer than the recipe calls for.
