St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, which has me feeling all things Irish. It is nearly impossible to go out and drink bright green beers with small kiddos, so now we celebrate as a family with all the Irish eats. As an old Irish Proverb says, “laughter is brightest, where food is best,” and I couldn’t agree more. I’d much rather sit around the table eating a great meal with my family, opposed to a day out on the busy downtown streets. And this meal really is the best! I combined some Irish food favorites with Guinness to create a Guinness Braised Corned Beef With Cabbage recipe. Guinness has such a deep and rich flavor which pairs perfectly with corned beef!

This past week, a friend of mine came over bearing gifts… not just any gift, she brought over a huge basket full of organic fruits & vegetables fresh from the farmer’s market. SCORE!

This is another super easy DIY that anyone can do. I’ve seen these driftwood mirrors at Pottery Barn and other stores online. I knew it would be easy and inexpensive to do.
This recipe is a delicious alternative to Shepherd’s Pie. I love how you get a blend of American and Mexican cuisine together to make a meal full of flavor! The salsa really makes this so juicy and delicious. If your family is anything like mine, they will return for seconds or request it to be on the menu more often.
