Do You Have Time to Cook a Corned Beef?!

A show of hands please...

Do you have time to cook a corned beef on Saint Patty's day?   
Do not feel bad! 

Here's what you do: 

Call a few friends & ask if they would like to meet you at a pub for a Guinness & some corned beef sandwiches

When they ever so kindly oblige, tell them to save room for dessert because you have prepared a nice little Irish spread at your home.  

On your way home from work pick up the following items & ingredients (that of which you don't already have in your pantry):
Bailey's Irish Cream 
Whipped Cream
Green Food Coloring
Chocolate Syrup
Dessert (I chose a pecan pie)
Seasonal Flowers

Nothing screams Spring is on it's way like a beautiful bunch of white tulips this time of year!

I placed my flowers in a kelly green pail that I found at Target for $2.50...

After you enjoy your meal & head back home:

Brew a fresh pot of coffee

Once finished, add a shot of baileys to each cup & top with whipped cream
Don't feel like drinking? Just use a festive flavored coffee, such as Irish Chocolate Mint!

Add some green food coloring to look like a leprechauns foot prints & some chocolate syrup 

Take out your delicious dessert & prepare your spread!

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! 


THANK YOU faithful fans & friendly readers for staying by my side through my hiatus. I have missed blogging so much & promise you that many fun posts are in store! 

I guess even a Jane of All Trades can burn out sometimes... Trying to juggle 3 jobs, school & life in general has not been easy, but throughout it all, I have somehow remembered to not lose sight of what truly makes me happy... Cooking! Art! Design! Living!
