I always like to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!  My usual menu consists of several corned beefs cooking all day in the slow cooker with cabbage and carrots!  We also have red potatoes either boiled, roasted or mashed (depending on my mood) and Irish soda bread!  It's a feast my family looks forward to all year!  The parents come over, too, and we usually celebrate my husband's birthday, since he is a March baby.  We don't always get glorious warm spring weather to celebrate with, but halfway through March means spring will soon be getting the upper hand over "Old Man Winter".  Winter has been unusually brutal this year for us and so many people...any sign of spring is a welcome sign!

If you haven't made cake mix cookies yet, you really need to give them a try!  I've become a real fan of cake mix cookies these days...mostly because I can get really lazy in the kitchen sometimes!  Cake mix cookies are so super easy and there is no need to bring butter to room temperature or drag out the electric mixer.  Just a few ingredients and you've got some delicious cookies to share!   Make sure not to over-bake your cookies!  That's the secret to good cake mix cookies...if you only bake them until they look just set, they will be perfect.  You know your oven best, so use your instincts as a gauge.
