I am so excited about this week! My self and some blogging buddies are bringing you a week of St. Patrick’s Day recipes, crafts and DIY projects. Welcome to Luck of the Irish Week!!Graphic Final 2

I honestly have not spent many years celebrating this day. Oh sure as a kids I would make sure to wear green so I wouldn’t get pinched but as an adult it was never something I have really done. As the day approached this year I wanted to get myself familiar with some tradition Irish recipes. Irish Soda bread was the first thing that came to my mind. From what I found online the traditional was to make it is with just flour, soda, salt and buttermilk.Cranberry Almond Soda Bread | #luckoftheirishweek

Well since I try to stay away from buttermilk, because my daughter broke out in hives after having it once, I knew I would have to come up with something else. I love using yogurt in place for buttermilk in some recipes so I knew that is what I would use. Also I did not have any raisins or caraway seeds so I knew that was out of the question as well. I try not to have to go buy any extra ordinary ingredients to make some of my recipes. We all can’t rush out to the store to get them so we really just have to improvise and use what we have. Well that is what you get with this Cranberry Almond Soda Bread! ENJOY!Cranberry Almond Soda Bread | #luckoftheirishweek
