Our front door is usually the first place you catch a glimpse of an upcoming holiday or new season. So far this year, I have been a little slow to get a new wreath up. My goal for Easter was to get a new wreath up before April 1st and I just barely made that goal. My Easter ribbon wreath was finished on March 31st and I put it out on the morning of the 1st. Score!
So, I shared all about my first experiences with Irish coffee during a trip with Mathlete way back in 2003 and the resulting cupcake. Today, I’m going to focus on something a little more near and dear to Mathlete’s heart: Guinness cupcakes with Irish Cream frosting…sort of like a car bomb in a cupcake.
Remember me telling you all about how much Mathlete loves a Reuben sandwich and my solution was to make him Reuben Dip? Well, someone wasn’t entirely happy with just having a dip made with the flavors of his favorite sandwich. Of course, the easiest thing to do would be to just make him a Reuben…or even take him somewhere to buy one. Instead, I decided to make Reuben sliders.
March brings the greenest holiday of the year. On St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll get all kinds of green clothes, drinks and food. To help you keep prepare, I’ve collected 17 St. Patrick’s Day recipes that are perfect for the Leprechaun’s holiday. Of course, not all of them are green because I definitely advise against eating things like green meat ;0
In case you didn’t see it this morning, we have a HUGE giveaway going on that you don’t want to miss.
On my first ever trip with the Mathlete, we went to San Francisco for a wedding. He had a few friends living there and almost every day we ended up in an Irish bar drinking Irish coffee. Now, I love my lattes so the idea of Irish coffee wasn’t that appealing to me but it turned out to be so delicious. Since that trip, I don’t think I’ve had any Irish coffee but I still think about those flavors from time to time. With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, I decided to turn that drink into a delicious cupcake by making Irish Coffee cupcakes and then topping them with whipped cream frosting.
I love all of the bright and cheery green that comes along with St. Patrick’s Day. It is a great primer for Spring! Of course, that extends into food too which is why I am such a fan of these St. Patrick’s Day Marshmallow Pops. They are absolutely one of the easiest things you will ever make but are so cute and delicious. [Read more...]
