a list of my most green recipes

It seems to me like everyone has a bit of Irish in them.  I don’t mean that metaphorically alone, as it’s astonishing the number of people I’ve come across who celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a strong conviction that they are of some sort of Irish descent.  Guess those Irish were busy back in the day?  And I am no exception.

This time of year, and this month in particular, is a happy one for me as (1) it’s my birthday, and this year it was a big one (2) it’s St. Patrick’s Day just 5 days after said birthday and (3) Spring is coming and everyone has a strange optimism in their eyes.  Even if you are getting blasted with an irregular blizzard, East Coast.  Thoughts out to you, but heck, you get snow days.

I thought it’s about time I compile a list of my most green recipes to help you and yours celebrate the Irish holiday that’s all about the yellow-blue hue.  I’m going to start with the most recent I shared from my birthday, since I haven’t even put it on the web-site yet! (you can thank the party for that, but I swear it’s coming soon).  But, here is the video with the recipe below, followed by its equally green friends.

I hope you enjoy these recipes!  They’re some of my favorite ones I’ve made.  See, March really is a good month.  🙂

green (spinach) birthday cake

It’s March!!  Which means that (a) we all get to pinch each other if we’re not wearing green on the 17th and (b) it’s my birthday on the 12th.  I love this month, because it also indicates that the cold will depart soon.  Happiness.

In honor of the two primary reasons I love March I have concoted a green cake that is dairy and gluten-free, with paleo and diabetic-safe options (coconut flour and xylitol).
