Last week’s St. Patty’s Day post may have been about kid’s books, but this week we’re gonna talk food!
Yep. Fun and festive recipes for St. Patrick’s Day.

Like I said the other day, my family doesn’t normally do anything special for this holiday. But now that my daughter is old enough to understand what the holiday is all about, a part of me wants to have fun with it!
That means green crafts, lots of St. Patrick’s Day books, and, of course, yummy Irish-inspired cuisine!
I’m totally not creative enough a chef to come up with some amazing, innovative and new recipe for Saint Patty’s Day. I already know this fact about myself, there’s no need in hiding it.
So, as per usual, I decided to hit Pinterest in search of simple, yet delish, St. Patrick’s Day recipes that Bee can help me make.
Here are some of my very favorites:
I am a huge fan of nachos and this recipe did not disappoint!
Hubby and Bee love it when I make a big breakfast on the weekends. I think we’re going to have to try these potato pancakes soon!
All you need to make these is some Irish stew and pastry crust!
Of course, there’s a little Guinness in this shepherds pie recipe!
A traditional Irish bread recipe. If you make only one of these recipes for St. Patrick’s Day, make this.
Kids will love these awesome green Lucky Charms marshmallow treats!
Aren’t these cookies cute? I’m not sure I’m talented enough to make them look that good, though!
My daughter and husband both love it when I make peppermint bark at Christmas time. Why not mint oreo bark for St. Patty’s Day?

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with Oreos and mint chocolate cheesecake dip?!
Green and minty chocolate chip cookies. Sounds delish, doesn’t it?
These were easier to make than I expected and a huge hit with everyone who tried them!
So many St. Patty’s day recipes call for mint, but this one is a little different!
Surprisingly easier to make than they look!
I love chocolate, brownies, mint, and Andes. I can’t think of a single reason not to make these!
I’ll admit I’m not a cake fan, but I know a few red velvet cake lovers who would likely love this festive Saint Patrick’s Day cake.
I’ve made a few of these lasagna dessert recipes. I bet this one is really yummy!

I actually went to the store and bought the ingredients I was missing to make this shake yesterday.

My absolute favorite cocktail is the whisky sour. It’s my go-to drink anytime I’m out. That’s why I know I’m going to love this drink.
This looks really delicious and way too easy to make!
I’ve never made hot chocolate from scratch. Can you believe that? Sometimes I feel like if your favorite hot cocoa is Swiss Miss, you’re probably failing as a human being in some way.
That’s why I really want to try this (adult) hot chocolate recipe.
Honestly, I’ve always been a big fan of jello shots.
It’s been years since I last had one, so if someone offered me one of these, I’d definitely throw it back.
How are you celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day this year? Are you dedicating an entire day to Irish foods or are you gonna make a green cocktail and call it good?
