St. Patrick’s Day Noms

Last year I posted this handy little listicle looking at all these neat traditional Irish recipes to make for St. Patricks – yes, some include booze, and no they aren’t all artificially green. Time to bring it back – and probably make one or two this weekend! Get pumped – and maybe not so super…
