Well, another year in Boston and another Super Bowl for the Patriots. This year is an unexciting Super Bowl for me. I don’t particularly care for either team (sorry fellow Bostonians!) so I may be tuning into the Puppy Bowl instead this year. However, I know there are lots of Pats and Eagles fans out there! I also know there are a lot of people who are going to Super Bowl parties who may want to bring delicious treats!

HAPPY 2018!!! Can you believe it?? 2017 just flew by. And now here we are in January. The beautiful holiday decorations are coming down, but it’s still bitterly, uncomfortably cold out there.
