Remember last Friday when I promised you would be seeing some St. Patrick’s Day recipes posted this week? Yeah, I failed miserably. Please don’t fire me from my own blog. I grossly underestimated how bad corporate tax week can be. The good news is, I have 2 recipes coming your way in the next few days! So keep me around. 🙂
As crazy as this week was, I’m sure happy that I can finally see that tax season is more than half over!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Please enjoy my favorite things from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites! You may sense a theme….

Favorite Sliders: Corned Beef Hash Sliders. Corned beef and hash in slider form? Ummm, I’ll eat all of them. Please and thank you.
Favorite Shamrock: What’s better than a shamrock, you ask? A shamrock with chocolate. This would be a fun little gift!
Favorite Bread: Irish Soda Bread. This recipe is on my baking agenda this weekend! I promise.
Favorite Sign: Sooooooo true. 🙂
Favorite Stew: Beef and Irish Stout Stew. Can you say “yummmmmm?” Yummmmmm.
Favorite Shirt: Shrunken Boyfriend Green Gingham Shirt from Gap. I love me some gingham!
Favorite Dunkers: Shamrock Shaped Snack Crisps. Pie dough or puff pastry cut out into shamrocks and topped with Parm and parsley. What a great idea!
Favorite Gifts: Skittles and Rolos in bottles. Easy, cute, and tastes like the rainbow….all great qualities in a gift.
Favorite Cake: Kerry Apple Cake. This is a traditional Irish cake that a has a crunchy top with a moist inside. I’d love to make this in a cast iron pot!
Favorite Sippers: Shamrock Straw Toppers. Since I love using straws 93% of the time, I’d love to jazz them up with shamrocks. 🙂
Favorite Meal: Irish Bangers and Mash. We had a similar feast last St. Patrick’s Day and I’ve been dreaming of this meal since then. So. Good.
Favorite Wreath: I have a real obsession with wreaths for some odd reason. But don’t you agree that this one is fun?
Favorite Appetizers: Reuben Style Potato Skins. Up until a few years ago I thought I didn’t like Reubens because of the sauerkraut. Of course, I’d never actually eaten a Reuben at that point. Luckily I discovered that I actually like sauerkraut and love Reubens. Must be in my Irish and German blood. 🙂 I’m loving this appetizer spin on the classic sandwich!
Favorite Nails: Festive green nails. I’m ALWAYS looking for different ways to paint my nails. Perhaps it’s because I stare at them while punching away on my calculator all day.
Favorite Cupcake: Rainbow Frosting Cupcakes. That is a whole lotta cuteness in one cupcake. Love, love, loooooovvvvee.
Favorite Place Setting Idea: Twine, napkins, and a shamrock are all you need to make this simple and rustic place setting. Just my style!
Favorite Funny: This has nothing to do with St. Patrick’s day, but I loved watching Justin Timberlake on SNL last weekend! As always, he was a fantastic host! He’s been on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (<—my favorite) all week, but I have yet to watch them. They’re stored up on my DVR for some good laughs this weekend!
Happy Friday to you all!
