I was sent a copy of the book Favorite Flavors of Ireland and a coupon for KerryGold to facilitate my review. My opinion is my own.
With today being Saint Patrick’s Day, it is only fitting that I bring you something filled with love of the Irish. The book Favorite Flavors of Ireland is a collection of recipes that will bring you back to the rolling green hills of Ireland. Best of all the book is split into seasons so you will find recipes that are specifically created for using fresh produce and meats that are available for that season. We looked through all of the recipes and chose one to test out for us. I’ve made some of the recipes before using my family methods but it was interesting to see the differences in the more traditional Irish flavors. I wanted to make the Irish Whiskey Cream Cheese Cake but as the Irish Whiskey isn’t gluten free I figured the only one that would be eating it would be Steve and I didn’t want that. We chose to go with the classic Shepherd’s Pie recipe. I’ve made Shepherd’s Pie a thousand times over the last 20 years. It’s an easy but filling meal. I usually make it in a huge 13 x 9 inch pan so that we have some for leftovers. I started by purchasing all of the ingredients and then set about making the dinner.

I will say this recipe was different from our usual recipe. It had some different tastes including our usual recipe includes tomatoes. BUT it was delicious. The entire container was eaten and there were no leftovers for our family.
