Traditional Irish Food for St. Patrick’s Day

Today I’m sharing some traditional Irish food recipes from some of my favorite bloggers. Full disclosure I am not Irish, and if I do have an Irish heritage it is long since passed. However, these recipes are super festive and lean closely to traditional Irish recipes that you can create in your own home.
