Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
It’s a day of green food, green alcohol, and green clothing. But what about some really good Irish romances to celebrate? I reached out to one of my favorite reader groups and asked for their favorite Irish romances.
They did not disappoint.
Most recommended audiobook (and ebook): Hooker & the Hermit by Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway.
Oh yes, I’ve listened to this audiobook many, many, many times. Dual first person narrative. All you need to know: Really sexy Irish man reading fairly spicy scenes.
Here are some other titles to look into:
- Still Life With Strings – L.H. Cosway
- The Ballybeg series – Zara Keane
- Selkie Heart – Sam Asher
- Love Found in Shamrock Texas – Teresa Lilly
Now that you’ve got your book, it’s time for cookies. Here is an easy and awesome recipe for shamrock cookies that can bake while you dive into a new read!
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup green sugar
- Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Work with half the dough at a time; refrigerate remaining dough until needed.
- Shape dough into 70 (3/4-inch) balls; reserve 7 balls. Roll each of the remaining balls in green sugar. To form each shamrock, place 2 balls with sides touching and 1 ball on top on ungreased cookie sheets. For stems, divide each reserved ball into 3 pieces. Roll each piece into ball, then in green sugar; shape into a triangle. Place 1 triangle pointed side up at bottom of each cookie between 2 balls for stem.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
Go forth my friends, and have a tasty and safe St. Patrick’s Day! And at the end of the day, give your keys to a friend or grab an Uber.
