St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays (I think I say that about every holiday – any excuse for fun activities, delicious desserts, and to try new recipes!) because of all the shades of green, rainbows, leprechauns, and the magical feeling that surrounds this day. The boys love to help me in the kitchen, so we hunted down some great kid-friendly St. Patty’s Day recipes.
