Dueling Donuts: Blueberry Wildcat Cake and Go Big Red Velvet

There are some days when I’m so tired that I can’t imagine mustering up enough creative thoughts to get me through the work day, let alone this blog.

Birthday Cake Pancakes, Chocolate Chip Pancake Cupcakes AND Snowstorms

This just in. We got a whole lot of snow this weekend on the East Coast, particularly in New York City and surrounding areas. (If you weren’t aware of this unexpected snowpocalypse, you must have been disconnected from the rest of the planet this weekend).

Pancakes and snow...yum.

Do you know what happens when a snowstorm blindsides you at the end of October, and you’re all snowed in with nowhere to go?

You throw on some tunes and play with pancake batter.
