Foodie Friday: Better Than A Pot Of Gold ~ 20 Green Recipes & Cooks' Tools

{ Via: Elle Decor }

Of course, everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Patrick's Day. I am actually about 50% Irish, but not a fan of Irish food. It's either too salty, fatty, or plain for my taste. Or maybe I just haven't had it from the right source. What does tempt my tastebuds is eating anything green. It really is the healthiest color under the rainbow.  Today's recipe roundup showcases the Irish hue in all of its verdant varieties. Sláinte!

Lucky Leprechaun Rum Punch
A sparkling pineapple-lime rum punch with a Lucky Charms rim. Isn't it so much prettier than Green Beer

Heather Christo

Deborah Rhodes Placemat
Bring the outside in with this realistic and organic table topper.

Spinach and Artichoke Melts
These sandwiches are a knock-off of the Claddagh Irish Pubs in Ireland. Think hot spinach and artichoke dip between buttered bread!

Roasted Jalapeno Guacamole Salsa
If Guacamole and Salsa had a baby, this would be it. The recipe author, herself, states that this dish is "to die for."
How Sweet Eats  

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Pork Loin
Pork loin is lean, so wrapping it in bacon, keeps it juicy. Stuffed with spinach, feta and red chilies, it is a very simple but interesting recipe.

Light Key Lime Cheesecake Shots
These little desserts are small but mighty and promise not to weigh you down. They are packed with Vitamin C. and the crust is made with bran flakes. A fun dessert that everyone will love.
Sprinkle Bakes 

5-Blade Herb Scissors
If you cook with fresh herbs, you need these.
Crate and Barrel 

Asparagus, Dill & Onion Tart
Raise your hand if you love a tart? Sweet or savory, count me in. The author says to serve this tart with a simple chopped lettuce, cucumber and dill salad, dressed with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.
Gourmet Traveller  

Grilled Artichoke With Arugula Pesto
Oh does this sound good to me. Pesto makes a delicious dip. In this case it adds a fresh dose of color to the grilled artichokes.

Savory Bread Pudding with Spring Vegetables and Herbs
Because these are made in individual gratin dishes, this recipe can be ready in 20 minutes!
Williams Sonoma  

Grasshopper Brownie Cups | Mint Chocolate Goodness
These little brownie filled desserts are perfectly portioned with a brownie cup, a little scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Perfection!

Well and Full 

Pesto Pasta with Chicken 
Isn't this a picture? Made with chicken breast, fresh mozzarella, and homemade pesto (which is so easy to make.) I bet that this is the pick of the edit by "Mr. Shop This."
