St. Patrick's Day Treats

Since St. Patrick's is on Sunday this year I thought I would include some all day meals, snacks, drinks,  and treats to make.  Most of us will be home so why not make it a festive occasion. 


I love these Rainbow Pancakes from Mom to 2 posh little divas. What a fun way to start the day! The bananas make great clouds.  Serve it with some Shamrock juice from Creative Juice


These St. Patrick's Egg Rolls look so yummy and easy to eat. Check out the recipe from sweet Peas Kitchen. This would make a great lunch for the whole family. 


Healthy Deviled Eggs
For dinner I think I am in love with a site I just discovered called skinnytaste.com. She has some amazing looking food and the best photographed. I am a visual person so I love seeing pictures of the recipe. Try her easy Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage and pair it with these Guacamole Deviled Eggs. Plus they are both Gluten free. She has a whole section of St. Patrick's Recipes be sure to check them out!


Now on to the good part: SWEETS!

If you love fudge this one is looks divine. Its Bailey's Irish Cream & Pistachip Fudge from Lea & Jay. I love the flavor of Irish Cream. 


An Irish float from Heart and Country. . This one is made with beer,but I don't drink and will be with my kids so I will simply use some good old root beer. Love the simplicity.
