When I was younger my Dad always wanted me to enter the Rose of Tralee. My Irish heritage is strong on both sides of my family and I have often visited Tipperary and Cullen where my families originated from. So I have a good reason to enjoy St Patrick’s day. Even if you can find a shred of Irish in you. It’s a fun time to get your craft on and to enjoy some great Irish food. With that in mind I’ve rounded up some of my favourite St Patrick’s Day crafts and recipes from fellow bloggers for you to enjoy.
Today is International Women’s day and it’s great opportunity to raise up women in your life who you are thankful for or how need an extra boost.

But it has fuelled me to learn more about the science of baking and how to use the ingredients to create wonder bakes, that mimic or even out do wheat based flours. These are my top five Gluten Free flours.
I love Tea. I really can’t stress it enough how much my life is dependant on Tea. The papers say that the UK is a country of Coffee drinkers, but that really isn’t the case in our family. My family and hubbies was forged on tea and a family occasion just wouldn’t be right without it. Which is why I was so happy when asked to review the Global Gourmet Water Urn.

My eldest hated onion from an early age but had no objection to Leeks so I’ve often used them as a substitute. With it being St. David’s day tomorrow, I was asked if I wouldn’t mind cooking up a recipe from British Leeks. So I chose to make a Quinoa Tabbouleh with Shredded Leeks and Preserved Lemon.
