Or a good rainbow anything. This is a recipe I’ve been searching for because this is exactly everything I love. It’s pretty, festive, tasty, and good for any occasion. Even a random gloomy Tuesday that is actually sunny and nice but feels gloomy. I think it’s just hard to have four kids at four very interesting ages: almost 13, almost 10, one and a half, and six-weeks-old. Those are all milestone(ish) ages, and I’m dealing with a lot of feels. Each day feels so loooooong, but I know the years can fly by with a gasp. So that means that it’s always time to celebrate the little things and make the rainbow recipes. Make ’em. You won’t regret it! Tell me a rainbow recipe you love.
