Supposedly, I am part Irish which I don’t doubt that since I love Irish food and music. I haven’t done one of those DNA test kits yet to prove it, but I am pretty sure there is some Irish blood in my veins. St. Patrick’s day is one of my all-time favorite holidays. Who doesn’t LOVE St. Patrick’s Day, after all? It’s a holiday full of happy things, food and beer! One of my favorite St. Patrick’s day eats is Irish Soda bread. It’s so easy to make and taste delicious. I have prepared an easy to follow recipe as my St. Patrick’s day gift to you.
