    Hey, Megan – I made Irish Soda Bread for St Pats and it was delicious. No frou-frou ingredients – it was from an Irish cookbook. The recipe I used and a picture are here:

    Wow – those cupcakes are huge! Did you ever buy the large Wilton muffin pan?

    Thanks again for the fun links!

    I loved Irish soda bread when I last ate it, in Ireland, but I’ve never tried making it (I’d like to, though). Is it complicated to make?

    Minna – it was very easy to make the Irish Soda Bread with the recipe I had. The only tricky part is not over mixing and not using too much buttermilk. Your hands get pretty sticky, too!

    Since you were speaking of wine juice boxes have you seen these? http://www.sofiamini.com/site.php

    The cans are so tiny and the attached straw is telescoping. The champagne ain’t so bad either!

    ooh! I love those sugar ants!

    Soda bread – yum! As long as you realize that yes, the dough is really supposed to be that sticky, you’ll be fine! It freezes great too – I slice it first, then freeze it, and then we can take out a slice or 2 as we want it!

    Pretty cupcakes – oh, unrelated, but did you see the origami wantons?

    my sister-in-law told me abomut the modified Irish Soda Bread recipe in the NY Times. I made it for St. Paddy’s Day this year, and served it w/Cashel (an Irish blue cheese) and aged Irish cheddar and Pippin apples.

    It was gone in a matter of minutes. A total crowd pleaser. I used a cup of currants than 1 1/2 cups, and it could’ve had even a little less.

    Marshmallow Peeps have an amazing cult following, and it’s no wonder why: they are cute, abstract, colorful, ubiquitous, and sugary….
