Chocolate is always a great place to start to when you are feeling low and these little pups while making you smile will go a long way towards boosting your spirits.They are almost too cute to eat I think but I believe I could manage to give it a try. By the way 5% of all the proceeds from Peanutbutter Pups are donated to Companions for Hero's. If you need something chocolate that you can make with your very own hands, here are 25 Chocolate Recipes you might want to delve into this weekend.
|4 Around the Table|
Lucky for me this week Leslie posted about the importance of pampering yourself during the long months of winter with flowers, baths, soothing cups of tea and shared the recipe for this scrumptious granola on 4 Around the Table. I have already made it and I can tell you that it is a wonderful and healthy way to start the day. Now if your winter weary soul needs something a little heartier perhaps a little Macaroni and Cheese from Smells Like Home would do. Cheese like chocolate is always a good idea and this recipe looks delicious.

This little article and video will make you laugh and appreciate the simple pleasures of life, and this one by Kelly Corrigan will bring a tear to your eye and remind you that life and love are precious and not to be taken for granted, something we all need to be reminded of now and then.
I hope that you have a nice, relaxing weekend. We are in for more snow and cold giving me the perfect excuse to stay in and enjoy my time with my family. Be safe and hopefully warm for those of you who have lost power.
