"The best soda bread ever"

Why I Love This Recipe

When I came to work at WWMS, Pat Dykstra started to talk to me about her St. Patrick's Day celebrations. She described the food and how her mom was so into St. Patty's Day. She made the holiday sound so warm and inviting that I decided to try it. I used her advise and found some recipes and, I have to say, Corned Beef and Cabbage is my favorite dinner, especially with this wonderful soda bread.
