My brother’s birthday just so happens to also be St. Patrick’s Day. There isn’t a year that goes by where his cakes, parties, and gifts, are always green, Irish themed, and more often than not, a little out of hand. Despite my family obligation to celebrate this day every year, it seems to be that many people, Irish or not, birthday or not, take the opportunity to dress in green, eat pub fare, drink Guinness or whiskey or both, and celebrate the opportunity to really, well, celebrate. When it comes down to it, everyone seems to be a little bit Irish when March 17th rolls around. Read More

From HuffPo: 10 Recipes, 10 Ways to Use Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

This article was originally published on November 14th in the Huffington Post.

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday — it’s a day that’s American to the core and it’s a day that’s all about what and how we eat.

I learned from my grandmother, who grew up in devastating war times, how important it is to keep with tradition and celebrate the holidays during tough times.
