Gluten-Free Recipes for St. Patrick's Day

A hot pan of gluten-free Irish soda bread rolls to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.


Spring Recipes for the Irish in Us All


I am ignoring the chill in the air this morning. Listening to birdsong. Looking on the bright side. Daylight Saving begins 2 AM this Sunday, March 13th. Ushering in an extra hour of daylight. And I am imagining Spring. Soda bread and St. Patrick's Day. Daffodils and robin's eggs. The Vernal Equinox is nigh. And I am not looking back. 

I am ready for forward motion. 

T-shirts and blueberries.

To celebrate the wee bit of Irish in all of us- be it by blood or kindred spirit- I thought I might gather my gluten-free recipes inspired by Celtic tastes. Yes, Lass, that means potatoes. And cabbage, too. Soda breads, salmon, eggs, cottage pies and Spring soups. 

The Spring Equinox is just around the corner. Flower beds will soon be sprouting tiny green shoots.

Add some Van Morrison to your playlist. Raise a glass.

Sláinte!
