Every good meal starts with bread. This beer bread recipe is magical and it’s not just because it’s made with honey.

Honey Beer Bread Recipe

Making beer bread is simple! There's no need to add yeast, let the dough rise, or fuss over the temperature of your kitchen. Just mix everything, and pull a hearty, crusty loaf of bread from your oven any time you want to feel like a world-class baker.

A bit of a twist on the traditional potato and carrot soups, our Easy Carrot Ginger Soup is a warm, filling meal that goes perfectly with crusty bread and a side of corned beef. Add in a few potatoes to the cooking pot, and you’ll have a great Irish(ish) meal.

Easy Carrot Ginger Soup

Our Carrot Ginger soup is so delicious it's hard to believe how simple it is to make. I find the most nourishing foods also are the foods that require only a few ingredients and come together in less than an hour including prep time.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with this traditional Glazed Corned Beef and Cabbage.

We’ve added a special spin to it by glazing the beef with our Eastern Shore Honey, for a special twist. This makes a great family meal for weekday nights as well. You can make our Honey Glazed Corned Beef in a crockpot if you’re really strapped on time. Cook for 6-8 hours, and you’ll have a perfect meal when you get home from work. And, since this is a big family meal, you’ll have plenty left over for sandwiches the next day!

This recipe is as close as I can recall to my mother's version. It's yummy. Enjoy!

Another great recipe for St. Patrick’s Day is our Sweet and Spicy Chili with Beer

Make this with your favorite dark brew (we’re looking to you, Guinness) for a bold, rich flavor that compliments your beverage choices perfectly. This Sweet and Spicy Chili was made with veggie crumbles, but feel free to use turkey or organic beef. Chili freezes nicely as well, so if you have too much right now, save it for later. And, since this is another crockpot recipe, it doesn’t demand a lot of your time. How much more perfect could a recipe get?

Sweet and Spicy Chili

Chili is such a perfect dish for any weeknight evening. It doesn’t require a lot of time to fix and it’s a filling, healthy, and delicious meal to prepare. We think this Sweet Spicy Chili is borderline comfort food.

For a twist on the traditional, our Honey-Glazed Salmon is a fantastic way to wow your guests.

Swap out the bourbon for a dark beer in this Honey-Glazed Salmon, and serve with hearty potatoes, rice pilaf, or a green salad, or place the salmon over a bed of wilted spinach for a truly elegant presentation. Our favorite honey to use on fish is Orange Blossom, since it is so thick and buttery. You can try using darker honey, to complement the beer, but the choice is all yours.

Honey-Glazed Salmon

Our Honey Citrus Glazed Salmon is a perfect light meal, and it's made all the better with fresh-caught fish.

Honey Mustard Sauce with Soft Pretzel Bites

We love this recipe just the way it is. These pretzels are crispy on the outside, but tender and soft in the middle. Dipped in the honey-swirled mustard sauce is perfection.

For something sweet (and healthy!) to finish your meal with, blend up a batch of our Bee Green smoothies. These give you a little bit of shamrock green to brighten the day, without being packed full of artificial colors and flavors.

Or, you can try our Green Smoothie with Raw Honey. It’s creamy, sweet, and made with a yummy blend of greens and fruit. Add in a dollop of our pure Sweet Clover Honey to for a little extra luck.

Bee Green Smoothies

Without honeybees, there would be far fewer greens, use as many as you wish to make this drink better and better with each addition. You can AVOID sugar-y fruits in this smoothie altogether.
