For many, St. Patrick’s Day makes them think of tiny leprechauns and a free excuse to pinch their friends. But for me, it fills my mind with thoughts of traditions, family, and most importantly, food. Food is what truly sets the tone of the holiday. As soon as I smell the sweet aroma of Irish soda...

Although I am not as bad as Rebecca Bloomwood in ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’, I do have to say I have a bit of a shopping problem. When I was little, my dream job was to become a fashion designer. At an early age of 6, I knew what clothes I liked, didn’t like, and what was the fad for little...
