So how about that snow, my Northeast friends? Wednesday was 55 degrees (by no means “warm”) bright and sunny, and then BAM snow and freezing temperatures overnight! Is this what global warming is…? Pretty crazy and just when we think we’re in the clear from winter, we get an ugly reminder that Spring is still pretty far away. And Summer? I wish! I’ll take it though, things could be a lot worse! At least it cleared up yesterday afternoon and the sun was shining! I always love that after snow sun that comes out and makes everything so bright from the reflections off the snow! Makes me want to play in the snow like a little kid…but I’ll pass and stay inside with some hot chocolate!
So if you did have an extra day off yesterday, I hope you used it well! This weekend I’ll be prepping a fun Valentine’s Day treat for my family and just catching up on any odds and ends. I’ve also made a firm (very firm) goal for myself to “try” shooting my first recipe video by the end of February. I think I can do it. It’s simple and already on the blog, so no stress there, but I’m thinking this will be the perfect one to try it on! Wish me luck 😉
Happy weekend and enjoy this week’s Friday Finisher!

Hold on while I go start this!
I do see the problem here.
Health, Celiac Disease, & Food Allergies:
Just like “natural” and “healthy”..these is no set definition.
The horrible double standard.
Awareness. You may think you’re functioning fine, but you’re not.
Blogging & Social Media:
What do you use?
It’s the only way to fuel this work to keep it going.
Time to add these to your follow list!
i.e. it’s about that engagement factor!
It’s important, but it’s only half the story.
Tech & Photography:
You can play around with codes, themes, and designs, offline and without ruining your real blog!
Love this process!
Great tips for more striking images!
I said I would start shooting (non-food) photos again this year…so far…I’ve failed.

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ I’m starting to feel my cooking mojo coming back! Whenever I say it, it usually sparks something to start up!
So tell me:
+ What are your Valentine’s Day plans for next week? Doing anything this weekend instead? (Who celebrates Tuesdays anyway?)
+ Did out winter wonderland appear at your doorstep?
