Scandinavian Gatherings recipe cards, Toadstool and Dala Horse enamel pins, available from Lulu the Baker's Etsy shop


First, Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I know there’s not much to this holiday, but I love it because of the food. Second, if you’re wondering what to make for dinner tonight, you still have time to make Corned Beef & Cabbage and my favorite Irish Soda Bread! Buy a corned beef brisket from the grocery store, click HERE to get the recipe for Corned Beef & Cabbage, and skip to the part where you start cooking the meat (step 2). Click HERE to get the Irish Soda Bread recipe.

And third, I’ve updated my Etsy shop with cute, new photos of my book, matching recipe cards sets, and enamel pins. Until midnight tonight, you can get 17% off your entire purchase by entering the coupon code STPADDY17. If you can think of other fun things that you’d like to see in the shop, please let me know!
