It’s a bold move but, trust me, St. Patrick’s Day recipes never tasted so good. Oh, and they aren’t all totally inappropriate to share with kids. There’s some safe stuff in here for them, too. But if you’re pregnant or abstaining, you might check out our favorite rainbow recipes instead. Either way, hard...
