These Lucky Charms marshmallow treats are a fun and colorful variation on the original Rice Krispies Treats. They are great for all sorts of celebrations.
Spring officially starts today! While I’m happy to celebrate the end of winter, it’s not sunshine and blooms yet in Southern California. We’re expecting rain… lots of rain all week.
It is forecasted to be a major storm. I’ve already received several flash flood alerts on my phone. It doesn’t rain very often in LA. So when it does, it’s headline news.
Contrary to most Angelinos, I relish the rain.
I love the way the pavement smells after the rain. I can’t wait to lounge on the couch by the window and listen to the rain fall. And most of all, I look forward to finding rainbows after the storm.
Today’s recipe is full of rainbows!
