There are a few surefire tell-tale signs of Easter.  For me, the appearance of Peeps, the little marshmallow chicks are one of the signs that Easter is on the way.

Peeps are one of those multi-purpose candies.  They satisfy your sweet tooth, but they’re so darn decorative, too.  You know those times that you’re supposed to bring something to an event, and you have these grand plans to make something amazing?  But then life gets in the way and you run out of time, but everyone is expecting something special?  No?  Me either.  *wink wink*

Here in my little area of the Midwest, we’ve been digging out from under nearly 18 inches of snow.  While that’s a lot of snow for any area, it’s more than we normally get in a year! As if that wasn’t enough, the temperatures outside didn’t even get above freezing for almost a week! Here we are two weeks later, and the snow has just now melted from the parking area by my house.

One of the saving graces during this ridiculously cold snap was a warm beverage.  On a normal day, a cup of coffee is necessary to get going.  But when it’s 12 degrees outside?  Yeah, I’m gonna need copious amounts of hot coffee and hot cocoa.
