Shamrock Meringue Cups
This recipe for Shamrock Meringue Cups (pictured at right) is a low-fat take on an old family-favorite lime pie. It's always a hit at potlucks and church suppers.
—Jean Elimon, Thompsonville, Illinois

Irish Soda Bread
Both my husband and I are diabetics, and I have found that Splenda is great for replacing sugar in many recipes, including this one. This Irish Soda Bread (pictured below) is the fastest bread you can make…and so tasty!
—Ruth Russell, Clyde, North Carolina

Colcannon Irish Potatoes
My mother came from Ireland as a teen and brought this comforting recipe with her. I find that it's a great way to get my family to eat cooked cabbage...hidden in Grandma's Colcannon Irish Potatoes!
—Marie Pagel, Lena, Wisconsin

Irish Stew
This satisfying Irish Stew is chock-full of potatoes, turnips, carrots and lamb. Served with Irish soda bread, it makes a hearty St. Patrick's Day meal.
