St. Patrick’s Day


Here in the South, food has long been a comforting companion. For some, baking a loaf of crusty Dutch oven bread or whipping up that family-favorite casserole is about more than just flavor; it’s a therapeutic taste of normalcy during days of anything but. While you probably envisioned this year’s St. Patrick’s Day a bit differently, these do-it-yourself recipes will have you wanting to enjoy this holiday from home every year.

Irish Soda Bread 

Some folks insist that traditional Irish soda bread contains only flour, baking soda, buttermilk, and salt. Others like to add butter, sugar, oats, raisins, or caraway seeds. But it really just depends on what you like best. If you didn’t grow up eating soda bread, give it a try. This slightly sweet version with raisins comes together quickly.
