A Sweet Saint Paddy’s Day

Image

One of my many favorite things about holidays is the number of desserts that are made in celebration, and this Saint Patrick’s Day was no different.  The weekend before Saint Patrick’s Day, since the holiday fell on a Monday this year, my house was filled with Saint Patrick’s Day treats.  Even though I’m not Irish by blood, being a student at the University of Notre Dame makes this day extra special.  We got into the Irish spirit making some themed cupcakes and shamrock cookies, and they tasted as delicious as they looked.  It was definitely a very sweet weekend.  What did you do to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day?  And for some other simple and delicious recipes check out some of these websites:
