Well it’s finally February, and yesterday Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, so that means an early Spring…which I can handle.

Nothing to phone home about…school got out early, the wind is sure blowing, but unfortunately the snow has stopped. Like I’ve been telling people, the last few years here it has been pretty mild snow wise. We haven’t received too much of it and I believe that if it’s going to be cold, there better be snow otherwise let’s just move onto Spring! On another note, I made cupcakes! No ordinary cupcakes either. Breakfast cupcakes. Cupcakes to wake up your senses. Now I can honestly say that it’s acceptable to eat dessert for breakfast with these Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Candied Bacon!! Read more
