Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

Irish soda bread is traditionally made with three ingredients: buttermilk, flour, and baking soda. It has a lovely crisp and crumbly crust with a soft and tender center. You can enjoy it for breakfast with butter and jam or even alongside a hearty stew. This recipe, however, is not so traditional. We like ours a little sweet, so we’ve added plump raisins, sugar, butter, and salt to the mix.

St. Patrick's Day is the perfect excuse to whip up a classic Shepherd's Pie! This dish is all about comfort: minced meat and veggies topped with a creamy mashed potato crust. It's simple, satisfying, and just right for celebrating. Whether you're Irish or just love good food, making Shepherd's Pie on St. Patrick's Day is a tasty way to get into the spirit of the holiday. If you're aiming for traditional, opt for ground lamb. Otherwise, ground beef works just fine!
