Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and even though it falls on a Saturday this year, I still have a couple of dinners that I’m planning to make in honor of the day. Now, they aren’t exactly “healthy” dinners – but they’re special treats and I think we’re all entitled to those every now and then. I also want to share my recipe for Irish Potatoes – which, if you’re from the Philadelphia region, like me, you will know are not in any way potato-related, but are in fact, little yummy coconut candies that are rolled in cinnamon and made to look like little potatoes.
And then the following week is the first day of Spring which also marks one of my favorite holidays of the year, the Persian Norouz – or New Year for all you non-Farsi speakers! Yes, it is the third New Year in just as many months in our family (January 1st, Chinese New Year, and Persian New Year) which is fine by me, because who doesn’t love another chance at starting over? Anyway, we will be having a traditional Norouz dinner on the 20th as well. Lots to celebrate this month (don’t even get me started on the fact that my EIGHTH wedding anniversary is also this month – although I will NOT be cooking for that!).
So Eid-eh Norouz Mobarak to all my friends and just remember, if you’re lucky enough to be Irish(or Irish/Iranian), you’re lucky enough!

Tilapia Baked in Couscous with steamed edamame. I made this for the first time about a month ago and was surprised by how delicious and easy it was. And the variations seem endless! Feel free to add olives, capers, or anything you’d like in with the sundried tomatoes! Tuesday,

Citrus Pork with Egg Noodles and Roasted Apples and Brussel Sprouts. I haven’t made this yet (and I’ll be making it with leaner pork tenderloin) but I know it will be great because it is yet another dish from Simply Recipes.
