Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread Recipe For One -- A classic treat for St. Patrick's Day that can be made right in your microwave!
Are we all feeling like the underbelly of a four leaf clover this morn'?!
I'm actually not sure if that is supposed to be a good or a bad thing, so depending on how your weekend was..adjust accordingly.
Friday was a long overdue ladies night with my gluten free goddess, Hannah. A pitcher of Sangria were mandatory.
Girl talk, drunken man interruptions, and delicious mushroom, arugula, and goat cheese pizza. What every Friday should be made of.
Saturday was cold and rainy, and all around disagreeable walking weather. Instead, a date with Jillian happened.
Level 3 is no joke. And Jillian looks like such a baby in this DVD.
After a long night of catching up with my better half blonde, Katie, a morning of sleeping in was delightful. Especially to prepare for MY FIRST RUN IN 4 MONTHS!
Yes, this winter served as a hiatus after my half marathon in November, nursing an injury, and focusing on more stress relieving exercise like yoga, walking, and some weight lifting. Now that the roads are finally visible from the mountains of snow, they started calling me.
But I missed the road, and getting back out there was like catching up with an old friend. We had so much to tell in those short 2.5 miles.
And Sunday morning pancakes always taste better after a run, when you're all too hangry, or with coffee. Oh, how I miss coffee..
Just when I thought Spring was in sight, we were graced with MORE. STINKIN. SNOW. At least it made for a good reason to hunker down and watch my girl crush J. Law.
And now, it's time for some St. Patty's Day eating!
Is it St. Patty's or St. Paddy's? Maybe it just depends on how much Jameson you've had. 😉
Before you go off drinking green beer and eating your boiled dinners, here's a quick breakfast to go with your Irish coffee.

I never have self control with any fresh bread, so making a single serving allows me to keep my 'ish together.
And no bread should ever go without melty butter. It just can't even.

Make it a great day!
What's your favorite kind of bread?
St. Patty's or St. Paddy's?
OK - this is genius. I was craving Irish Soda Bread this morning and you post this - and I have all the ingredients. This will be my afternoon snack 🙂
Hope you enjoy Deanna!
Glad you finally got to run! I've been nursing an injury all winter too, and it's nice to finally be outside. Hope spring comes to you soon! 🙂
I studied abroad in Ireland and the Irish were quite vehement that St. Patty is short for Patricia while Paddy is short for Patrick. It makes more sense when you think of it in Gaelic, since "Padraig" is the Gaelic form of Patrick. So happy Paddy's Day to you!
It's great getting back into the groove!

No WAY! I'm working on the same "mug cake" soda bread recipe! (but vegan of course!)
Great minds think alike! 😉
I've never tasted Irish Soda Bread and I think it's about time I did. Single serving recipes are the best, just enough to fill my cravings and not over indulge
