The elves at IrishCentral HQ have been in and out of lockdown, in Dublin and New York, for almost a year now. And have we all found ourselves doing? Cooking! Plus, there's no time better than St. Patrick's Day to reconnect with your Irish cooking skills.

There's nothing like a homemade meal to bring comfort during these unnerving times. So whether you're isolating along or with family and friends, why not whip up a little something Irish and be grateful for what we have.
