    You can have your corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day. For me the holiday means one thing: What foods can I dye green? I'm not talking already-green foods like broccoli and kale -- those are our everyday foods! (Wink!) I mean, whipping out ye lucky old green food coloring to give everything a bit o' the emerald.

    Not every food lends itself well to green food coloring. So here's a few foods you can get away with tinting without (hopefully) ruining your kids' appetites. Or your own.

    I don't know about you, but I love brownies. Brownies are one of life's greatest pleasures. And many believe that about a Guinness as well. Put them together and it's a St. Patrick's Day dream come true.

    This recipe is said to be a cross between an "intense chocolate cake and intense chocolate fudge" and that sounds just perfect. It's your lucky day! Here is the recipe.

    Can you believe that it's St. Patrick's Day this Monday? March is truly flying by, and who knew it'd be time to whip out the green outfits and beer so soon? You're already set with some typical St. Patrick's Day recipes, like Irish soda bread, corned beef and cabbage, and Shamrock Shakes.

    This Irish shepherd's pie recipe from Food.com is super straightforward and versatile. You pretty much cook all the ingredients in a pot, top it off with some mashed potatoes, and brush the potatoes with egg and Parmesan cheese -- and you're done! Hearty, delicious, versatile, filled with beef or lamb, this will surely get you into the Irish spirit in no time. The popular dish, also called cottage pie, originated in the UK and Ireland, so feel free to honor its origin and indulge a little this holiday!

    Sure, eating corned beef and cabbage is a traditional way to mark St. Patrick's Day, but if you're more of a sweet tooth person, you might be psyched about busting out a different kind of Irish treat ... Baileys Irish Cream! The whiskey- and cream-based liqueur is the perfect addition to tons of decadent dessert recipes. 

    For instance, this chocolate pie from LifeLoveandSugar.com features a graham cracker crust, chocolate ganache, chocolate pudding-esque filling, and chocolate whipped cream. Perfect for St. Patty's, yes, but I'm thinking just about any day you bake this baby up will be a lucky one!

    St. Patrick's Day, birthday parties, and spring on its way are all great reasons to celebrate with rainbow decor! I went to Pinterest to find out how people are using rainbows to brighten even the dreariest of day and found these clever rainbow goodie bags.

    The idea is to layer candy from every color of the rainbow over gold colored candy for the perfect rainbow treat. 

    While I think these candy-filled rainbow goodie bags could make anyone happy all year long, I wasn't sure how easy it would be to maintain that layered rainbow look.

    I'm not sure why some of us wait for St. Patrick's Day to make Irish Soda Bread -- it's so delicious! But because we so rarely have it, it's such a treat when we do.

    The trick to the best Irish Soda Bread out there is making sure it's moist, and I have just the right recipe complete with sweet currants, a bit of orange zest, and of course that yummy buttermilk that makes this recipe a hit.

    Kate Middleton and Prince William's upcoming royal tour of Australia may be the talk of the town ... okay, world. But before they jet Down Under, they'll be partaking in another newsworthy event right at home in the U.K. At the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 17 at Mons Barracks in Aldershot, the royal couple will visit the 1st Battalion Irish Guards.

    According to a royal press release sent out today, the Duke of Cambridge will attend the parade as Colonel of the Regiment, while the Duchess of Cambridge will present the traditional sprigs of shamrocks to the Officers and Guardsmen of the Regiment. They will also watch 300 soldiers as they march onto the parade square at the base.

    I wish leprechaun trap ideas on Pinterest had been available five years ago when my daughter came home from preschool with a homework assignment to create one for St. Patrick's Day. Leprechaun trap? I had no idea there was an actual leprechaun creating havoc in the world or that it needed to be captured.

    We did our best to put something together that could lure a leprechaun in, but it definitely wasn't super creative. I was happy to test the three most popular leprechaun trap ideas I've seen on Pinterest recently and my son was thrilled to play along!
