FA'ILTE! (Welcome!)

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. His life is celebrated on March 17th, which is why we call that day St. Patrick's Day.

Many people celebrate the holiday by wearing green and preparing green foods. If you are looking for more than a green Pistachio Cake and shamrock-shaped Sugar Cookies sprinkled with green-tented sugar for St. Patrick's Day these recipes are for you.

"May the leprechauns be near you,
To spread luck along your way.
May all the Irish angels,
Smile upon you on St. Patrick's Day."
