We’re less than a week away from our next celebration day… St. Patrick’s day! I fun excuse for festive and sometimes boozy food. It’s something we can all look forward to after the year we’ve had. After each special day passes, I’m already thinking about the next, which isn’t necessarily so far off from other years but now it’s special in a different way. The kids are home and we can celebrate together. It feels like these simple days are worth celebrating even more than usual.

This got me thinking about all of the different holidays throughout the year and realized the only month without anything special is August. How did that happen? Instead of a federal, religious or calendar holiday – we’ll have to celebrate all of the food holidays in August. Prepare yourself for peaches, ice cream and chocolate chip cookie days (and so many more!)… just not mixed together. I’m not sure how well those would go together.

What does go together amazingly well is Guinness and chocolate… chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting!

We really don’t need an excuse for a slice of cake, but if you want one… St. Patrick’s day is definitely a good excuse! For me, it’s a fun food holiday. For others, it’s definitely so much more. It’s a perfect time to bake and cook with Guinness. It adds so much flavor to whatever you’re adding it to…. from savory dishes to rich chocolate desserts.

Every year I try to whip up something fun and new for St. Patrick’s Day, whether it be sweet or savory.
