    Guinness-Gingerbread Cupcakes

    These decidedly grown-up cupcakes combine rich, malty stout with spicy gingerbread. And for a touch of green, they're frosted with a bright-tasting lime frosting and garnished with lime zest.

    Shepherd's Pie

    Irish Coffee

    Brown sugar is traditional in Irish coffee because it adds depth as well as sweetness, and the cream is very lightly whipped so that it floats on top like a cloud and blends with each sip of coffee.

    Twice-Baked Potatoes with Kale and Bacon

    Stuffing baked potatoes with kale or cabbage is a riff on the classic Irish dish colcannon, making these potatoes perfect for St. Patrick's Day. They're big enough to be a main dish; make halves (see variation below) if you’d like to serve them as a side.

    Stout Floats

    An ice cream float made with beer may not be a new idea to craft beer fans and brew pub regulars, but it’s too good not to go mainstream. And it’s truly a no-brainer to prepare. This is a version with chocolate ice cream and Kahlua that I enjoyed (loved) at the Creekside Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo a couple of years ago. I make smaller floats in 5- to 6-ounce glasses when I serve them for dessert after a meal.

    Carrot Mash with Orange and Mint

    This brightly colored mash has a tantalizing flavor that’s ideal with rich lamb dishes. A touch of hot sauce keeps the sweetness of the orange in check.

    Potato and Leek Galette with Rosemary and Sea-Salt Crust

    Potatoes and leeks baked in a buttery crust are punctuated with the snap of aged cheese and the flavor of rosemary.

    Shepherd’s Pot Pie

    In this classic, red wine adds a deep mellow richness to a hearty beef filling. The creamy mashed potato topping, seasoned with sour cream and Parmigiano, is brightened with peas, but they can be omitted from the topping and added to the filling. This recipe also will make four generous individual pies or five slightly smaller pies.

    Sour Cream and Leek Mashed Potatoes

    Potatoes and leeks are a classic flavor pairing, and here, they come together in luscious, creamy mashed potatoes. Serve with roast chicken, meatloaf, or as a bed for seared or roasted fish. This recipe doubles or triples easily, but add the milk in increments, as you may not need it all.
