St. Patrick’s Day isn’t something I grew up celebrating, my exposure to it was limited to an excuse to drink while in college. However, after having kids and having them invited to parties and volunteering at their classroom parties, it has slowly wormed its way in. Though I won’t make a day of it, I am not opposed to enjoying the delicious treat that accompanied the day. And since the universe works in mysterious ways, a dish I grew up enjoying with my family, happens to fit right into the St. Patrick’s day theme; that dish is this corned beef stew recipe with rice. It’s a super quick fix for busy weeknight dinner and a perfect way to celebrating without truly celebrating.

It looks complicated but assembling these Lucky Charms Cupcakes is actually fairly simple. Get the little ones to help and it can be a good family friendly activity, saving you time and giving them a bit of responsibility in the process.

No judgment here, I know what it’s like having lots of cooks in the kitchen, it’s probably one of the reasons why I sometimes do some of my work while they are in school or sound asleep. Anyway, enough about me.

Tools used to make these Lucky Charms Cupcakes:
Stand Mixer – Why? Because even the most inexperienced baker needs a mixer to achieve utmost greatness. If you’re not ready to make the commitment, opt for an electric hand mixer instead, this one is my fav.
Measuring Cups– When baking its important to measure accurately, this little nuance matters when it comes to the difference between having a moist and dry cake.
Cupcake and Muffin Pan – Now that you’ve secured a stand mixer and measuring cups, it’s only right to start making muffins for breakfast. 😉
