Colcannon Is the One Recipe I Make Every MarchRecipes
If you love creamy mashed potatoes, you’ll love colcannon, a traditional Irish dish. Keeping with tradition, we didn’t mess with the potatoes or cabbage, but swapped the plain melted butter that is typically served in a pool on top for fragrant browned butter. We just couldn’t help ourselves! The nutty browned butter is a wonderful warm contrast to the sharp green onions that get scattered before serving, giving this dish an easy, elegant twist.

Irish "Potato Candy" Is the Cutest St. Patrick's Day TreatRecipes
Unless you’re from Pennsylvania, you’ve probably never heard of Irish potato candy. I didn’t know what they were, but assumed they were candy made from potatoes. Wrong! Irish potato candies may look like adorable little potatoes, but they’re no-cook coconut and cream cheese candies with a coating of ground cinnamon — essentially the coconut equivalent of chocolate truffles. They’re the perfect St.

Recipe: Vegetarian Guinness StewRecipes
This is a last-minute St. Patrick’s Day recipe, but luckily it’s a fairly quick one. File this one under Un-Meat – all the rich, hearty goodness of Guinness stew without the beef. This recipe took a bit of tweaking to get the seasonings right, but I think a small amount of sugar is the key to round out the bitterness of the Guinness. And as with most stews, it’s even better the next day.

When I was little, my mother had a tea towel with a map of Ireland on it, and the map was crammed with family names so you could find which county your ancestors came from.

The Unexpected Place to Celebrate St. Patrick’s DaySkills
It’s true that New York’s St. Patrick’s Day parade is the largest in the world, that there’s no shortage of Irish bars to visit in Boston, and that it may be worth a trip to Chicago to see the river run green. But one of the best places to lift your pint glass in honor of the patron saint of Ireland probably isn’t on your radar. On any given holiday (or really any given day), it’s a safe bet there are good times, or bon temps rather, to be had in New Orleans.

St. Patrick’s Day Recipe: Red Flannel HashRecipes

If you love onions, add another one in.

David Lebovitz’s Guinness-Milk Chocolate Ice CreamRecipes
Confession: We had a foodie crush on David Lebovitz long before we saw the tour of his quirky Paris kitchen last week. We’ve been loving his Guinness-Milk Chocolate Ice Cream for some time now.The recipe comes from Lebovitz’s book The Perfect Scoop, and, like the Guinness Milkshakes from last week, would be a natural for St. Patrick’s Day. But we love it as a deeper, more complicated winter alternative to all the crisp vanillas and frosty fruit flavors of summer.

This cake couldn’t be easier to make—it’s a single layer with a crown of fluffy frosting, and you toss it all together on the stove top.

Mellower than Irish Coffee, and good for whatever ails you, the Irish Whiskey Skin is a bright and zesty pick for St. Patrick’s Day. You can spot a Whiskey Skin from across the room, thanks to its very distinctive garnish: a long, ribbon-like strip of lemon peel.
