Look o’ the Irish — St. Patrick’s Day Look

Today I’m celebrating by making Irish soda bread and corned beef with cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and onions (I’m trying out the Instant Pot for this year’s Irish feast!), and an apple spice cake with whisky sauce for dessert. Of course, I’m also celebrating by wearing a little bit of green.

If you saw my Butterbeer Birthday Cake post, then you probably know that I recently learned how to make salted caramel sauce, and since then, I’ve been putting it on E V E R Y T H I N G, including this bread.

I turned 32 last week, and I decided to throw a party. The theme was Brunch and Boardgames, but in reality, this party was just a cover for my cooking and baking addiction. The piece de resistance was my butterbeer cake.
