Lemon Pistachio Bundt Cake

Skillet Reuben Dip
Some people mistakenly think the Reuben originated in Ireland, but in fact, it was invented right here in the U.S. I think the confusion comes in because corned beef is part of Irish-American culture. Nonetheless, this Skillet Reuben Dip is the bomb, and even it’s not authentically Irish, it will be a hit at your party. (If you need another dip recipe, this Out-of-this-World Corn Dip is one of the most popular on the blog!)

  1. Love your enthusiasm. I am Irish and love to make the pistachio cake, tint our drinks and even had a ladies Irish tea day once. Everyone wore their green and we had everything Irish or green from the tea, soda bread, pistachio cupcakes (the instant pudding helped with the green too) and I gave clover plants as a parting gift. So I enjoy seeing others show their passion with food and decorating. Great job on the chaulk broom drawing by the way!
