There’s Guinness in the House!

Guinness‘Tis Friday in the Morgan house and time for a Guinness. However, any day of the week would do to have this delicious beverage, right?

Of course, I don’t just drink it…I love to cook, bake, and add it to a variety of dishes.

I’ve spoken of my love for this on another post, but it’s that time of year when I’m sharing it again.

Ahhh…definitely food for the soul.

Here’s another great recipe I found last year. Easy to make and oh so appetizing.


1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened

8 fluid ounces Guinness Draught Beer

1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 – 2 cloves garlic, minced

1 8oz package Dubliner Irish cheese, shredded (I like the Kerrygold)

Place the cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the cream cheese while adding the Guinness and Worcestershire sauce. Add the garlic and cheese, and process until smooth. Spoon mixture into a serving bowl and cover. Chill overnight or 8 hours before serving.


So any plans for your St. Patrick’s Day weekend?

UPDATED: I’ve just learned that George Donaldson of the group, Celtic Thunder passed away. My heart aches at the loss, but I know he’s belting out a tune in a much better realm. A gifted singer and storyteller. I believe he wouldn’t have a problem if we all raised a glass in tribute…

    The recipe sounds really good, Mary! 🙂 I’ve written it down.

    Yes, so very sad about George.

    • I truly hope you enjoy it, Leah. Please let me know if you do and if you “tweaked” it. 🙂

      All I kept thinking was heaven must have needed a new storyteller/singer. But my heart aches for his family.

    What a beautiful singer he was. How sad to go so young. The recipe sounds delish!

    My Irish stew recipe calls for marinating the meat in Guinness for few days 🙂 so tender after.

    Yes a sad loss for all of us here and especially for George’s family but what a gain for the angels in heaven.
