Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and I am SO excited to be teaming up with Pillsbury and some of my very best blogging friends to bring you the ultimate St.Patty’s Day blog hop.

My contribution …beef and Guinness pot pie topped with a  buttery, flaky Pillsbury biscuit   mmm mmm good!

I love using beer when making beef stew, and for this occasion only a Guinness would do. And you know how I feel about crust making, so topping my pot pie with a biscuit was the perfect solution.  You can never go wrong with a biscuit.
