Feeling Lucky...

First off, thanks to all who participated in yesterday's little give away contest!! The winner of the April kit is borcherding AND Haberdawoman!! Please email me at and I'll get your April Kits out to you ASAP!! Congrats!! And if you're up for another give away, keep reading...

My sweet friend Jeanie Radcliffe made this at the crop last weekend using the Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge and I thought it turned out adorable. She's into banners like I am, and we bonded even more discussing our heritage. Isn't it cute??
I thought this tutorial for creating St. Patty's Day shirts was too fun...

I love this recipe (especially because I'm not a fan of raisins, and most soda bread recipes call for them)...
Irish Soda Bread
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight, for best flavor.
And if you're feeling lucky, be sure to head on over to Emily Falconbridge's blog for a chance to win a spot in my class that starts next week!! Be sure to post a comment before Tuesday.

More Green Goodness tomorrow...enjoy your Saturday!!

thanks for the recipe! I think I'll try this tuesday when I make corned beef and cabbage. A traditional Irish Soda Bread, according to my mother who is half Irish, doesn't have raisins in it. She said that is Spotted Dick. can't wait to try this!!
