    No, there are no insects involved in grasshopper pie. We're not sure why this mint-chocolate pie obtained the name it did, but we do know that these mint-green miniature pies are a festive way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The mason jars make it easy to transport the pie; simply screw on the tops and garnish the pies with whipped cream when you're ready to serve.

    I have a great way for you to celebrate St. Patrick's Day: make your own Irish cream! More commonly known as Baileys, this rich, smooth, and delicious liquor can easily be made in the comforts of your kitchen. The recipe, which requires a blender, is similar to eggnog in that it combines a potent spirit, Irish whiskey, with eggs, cream, and seasonings such as vanilla and coconut extracts.

    How to bake a great Grandmother's Irish soda bread. This is one of the easist bread recipes out there. Baking soda leavens the bread, so there's no waiting for the bread to rise. The caraway and raisins add sweetness and flavor, but they can be left out or substituted for other dried fruit and herbs. Once the bread is baked, serve it up with a generous mound of Kerrygold butter!

    Boxty, an Irish potato pancake that translates to "poor-house bread," is like a cross between an American pancake and hashed browns. While it can be served at any meal, including dinner, I think American palates will appreciate it most for weekend brunch. Try topping it with smoked salmon, crème fraîche, and dill fronds to make it a complete meal.

    In America, we'd probably call it an open-faced grilled cheese sandwich, but across the Atlantic in the British Isles, it's known as Welsh rarebit (also called Welsh rabbit). The dish consists of a beer and cheese sauce that is poured over a slice of toast. Dating back to 300 years ago, rarebit first made its appearance in taverns across Ireland and England. Who wouldn't want to pair their ale with a cheese toasty?
