Another Holiday is right around the corner! One of my favorites! We always make Corned Beef and Cabbage. What do you serve in your home on St. Patrick’s Day? Do you have family and friends over?
It’s also an opportunity to make some St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Balls! My relationship with Kraft as a Delicious Byte Blogger is great for finding some awesome recipes. I had a chance to make Cookie Balls first hand in the Kraft kitchens. It was a great fun time, a project that you can easily involve your children in.
