Wheeeee! Is there anything more magical than a rainbow? Definitely not! Now, before I get bombarded with emails claiming food coloring is the equivalent of meth and is pretty much the devil, let me assure you that I’d rather live a life with unnatural colorful food and “edible” glitter than without. But you do what you like.

Shavuot is coming up, which is a pretty big deal. It’s all about getting the Torah and its comandments, without which we would have no idea not to steal from others. When the chosen people received the Commandments, a rainbow appeared, and rainbows are supposed to be a sign of this covenant. Good enough for me!

But you seriously don’t need an excuse for rainbows. I almost chose rainbows and unicorns as my last birthday theme, but at the last moment went classy with a jarty. (AKA jeans party. Think denim on denim on denim. As a reminder, I live in Texas and this is totally normal attire.) But why not cook up rainbow pretzel sticks for Gay Pride or rainbow cookies for St. Paddy’s or a rainbow cake for the 30th 3rd birthday of someone special! Here are 30 rainbow recipes in a quasi particular order.
