(Family Features) Whether you're Irish or not, St. Patrick's Day is a time for Celtic celebrations - so try your luck with a classic like Irish Soda Bread, a popular Irish recipe with a hint of sweetness from cinnamon and raisins.

"Irish Soda Bread gets its name from the fact that it uses baking soda instead of yeast - which means making it is really as simple as mixing the ingredients together and baking it," said Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens. "It's perfect warmed up for an Irish-themed breakfast or dinner, and it makes a great hostess gift for St. Paddy's Day parties."

To make Irish Soda Bread muffins, divide dough among 12 greased muffin cups. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
