St. Patrick’s Day–you may not be Irish yourself, but I’m willing to bet you or someone you know acknowledges or celebrates March 17th. Our family (Felice and I) have Irish roots, so I personally celebrate, and I also enjoy traditional and authentic Irish foods, drinks, and art among other things. My favorite Irish bread is actually brown bread, but I cannot find a loaf of one to buy that I like, nor can I nail any recipe, no matter how “easy” and “fool-proof” I’m told it is. If you haven’t picked up on this about me, it’s that baking is a challenge. I love the exact science of it, but I hate terribly that, for some reason, my end result is never as it should be. Therefore I tend to cringe at the thought of it, but when I bake and it turns out great, it’s the BEST thing!
