St. Patrick’s Day Irishfetti Cupcakes

Shamrock Cupcakes

With the greatest holiday in the world approaching, Dana and I decided to make homemade Irishfetti cupcakes.  These are similar to those oh-so-fun-fetti cupcakes that you buy in the store, but they are homemade and loaded with shamrock sprinkles.  Yep, a nice white cake full of white and green shamrock sprinkles.  Granted this recipe works with any sprinkles, but this recipe works the best for St. Patrick’s Day.

Irish Coffee

It is getting cold here in DC and there is only one drink that can make Swedish/Polish/Irish lad feel good. Irish coffee. This term is used many ways and the drink is never made the same. I have been testing a few recipes and I think I have found the perfect one.  BTW if there are miss-spelled words I am sorry, it was a long journey to find the perfect recipe and man am I drunk.  In the end I found the perfect combination of ingredients to make the ultimate Irish Coffee.

Grilled Potato Coins

I am always looking for new ways to cook side dishes on the grill.  The other day I went to an Irish Pub in Alexandria that served potato coins as a side to their dishes.  These coins were deep fried but they gave me inspiration to try to make coins on the grill.  The potatoes were thin enough to cook on the grill, so I decided to give it a try.  Potato coins are my new favorite side.

Reuben Pizza

I love reubens and I love pizza, so it is only natural that I make a reuben pizza. This pizza took a couple of times to make before it made the website. Just so you know, thousand island dressing is a bad idea for a sauce. Trust me, I tried it. You also have to completely drain the sour kraut. If not, your pizza is going to be really soggy. For being a pizza, there are a lot of elements that need to be right to make the perfect pie. Luckily for you, I don’t give up easily. As for tonight, I have created the perfect reuben pie.
