Feeling Lucky?

Good morning friends!

How’s your day going so far? I hope it’s off to a lovely start! Since St. Patty’s Day is this Saturday, I thought I’d share some recipes from around the blog world that have recently caught my eye. You guys know I’m a greens-loving kinda girl (Salad Monster should have been my middle name), and I’ve been finding all sorts of lovely festive green eats on new-to-me blogs. I think they’re so great that I want you to know about them too, so here you are, my St. Patty’s Day 2012 Recipe Roundup!

The bevvies…

Honeydew, Cucumber, and Mint Mojitos from Thyme


Mint Chip Cookietini from Snappy Gourmet (how ridiculously amazing does this look?!)


The savoury…

Watercress and Forbidden Rice Salad from Cookie + Kate


Shamrock Fried Eggs from Zestuous


Irish Brown Bread from The Parsley Thief


Roasted Cabbage with Lemon from Kalyn’s Kitchen

Lucky Spinach Quiche from Diamonds for Dessert


Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip from Two Peas and Their Pod

The Sweet

I know some of you have a sweet tooth, and although most of my recipes are squeaky clean as far as nutrition goes, pardon me for just today because I just NEED to share some of these with you. Get your toothbrushes ready for a sugar rush!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake from Pip & Ebby


No-ice-cream-maker-required St Patrick’s Day Kiwi Sorbet from Snixy Kitchen


Guinness Brownie Bites with Bailey’s Cream Cheese Frosting from Sweet Tooth


Irish Coffee Caramel Ice Cream from Sweet Twist of Blogging


And finally, guess what this is (don’t cheat and scroll down past the photo before you guess!!):


That would be a Pot of Gold Caramel Apple from an absolutely amazing, new-to-me blog called Hungry Happenings. Doesn’t it look perfect?! The author, whom I’ve learned is Beth, has a serious knack for decorating food. If you’re looking for treats for your Easter menu already, check out these rabbit cupcakes. Like O.M.Geeeeee.

Now tell me…

  • Will you be celebrating St Patty’s Day?
  • Green beer: Yay or nay? I’ve never been a beer fan, but you can bet I’ll be having a green smoothie! 😉
  • Any special green eats due to come out of your kitchen this weekend?
