St. Patrick's Day Recipes to Take Your Celebration Over the Rainbow (1)

In case you didn't already know, you don't need to be Irish in order to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Every year on March 17, people around the world honor the life and death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, in a variety of ways, such as going to their local Irish pub, gulping Guinness, and — of course — enjoying some Irish food. Whether you're craving something traditional, like corned beef and cabbage, or just want something green and shamrock-shaped, the best St. Patrick's Day recipes are sure to get you in the holiday spirit.

Since there's really no wrong way to celebrate St. Paddy's Day, you can turn your food prep into an all-day affair. Start the day with some corned beef hash, enjoy beef stew for lunch, and feast on shepherd's pie for dinner if you're not too full of Guinness (or tasty St. Patrick's Day desserts). If you're in need of some Irish-inspired dishes and desserts that double as St. Patrick's Day crafts, then here is the best St. Patrick's Day food you can make.
