  • Rainbow toast

    All you do is dye milk the colors of the rainbow. Paint it on to your bread. Toast in toaster. Top with favorite toppings! Ours included: Cinnamon sugar, honey, and jam!

  • Shamrock Toasties

    Green Pepper
    Cheddar Cheese
    English Muffin

    To make one, slice a green pepper crosswise near the pointed end to get a small, three-lobed shamrock shape. (If your pepper has four lobes, you've got a lucky clover instead.) Cut a small slice for a stem.

    Toast half an English muffin, then top it with a slice of Cheddar and the pepper shamrock. Place the muffin on a tray, then broil it in a toaster oven until the cheese is melted.

  • I make rainbow cupcakes. It's a little bit of a pain but it's only once a year. Take angel food cupcake mix and make as directed. seperate the batter into 6 equal portions and use food coloring to get the 6 colors of the rainbow (red orange yellow green blue purple). Here comes the tricky part. Layer the 6 colors of batter in the cupcake cups. Frost with white icing for clouds and if you feel like it add gold foil chocolate coins. My kid thinks I'm magic lol

  • These are awesome ideas, ladies. My step son & I are both part Irish but, my SO isn't at all. I thought this year we would do some things to celebrate, I've never really celebrated St. Patty's Day. But, I'm looking forward to it. These are SUCH cute ideas :)

    1 small yellow onion -- chopped
    1 1/2 cups baby carrots -- halved lengthwise (or cut, regular carrots)
    6 small white potatoes -- baby or miniature if available, halved or quartered (I love those yukon golds!)
    2 cloves garlic -- minced
    1 1/2 cups cannellini beans, cooked -- (1 can) drained and rinsed (or your own cooked, dried beans)
    2 cups vegetable stock
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 cup dry white wine (I use Guinness, of course)
    2 tablespoons tamari or braggs or soy sauce
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    3 large kale leaves -- or other dark leafy greens, chopped, cooked in simmering water to cover until tender, and drained
    Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes (I do this in the crock, on high). Transfer the onions to a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker. Add the carrots, potatoes, garlic,
