My love for Easter candy runs deep. Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, Whoppers Robin Eggs, and Cadbury Mini Eggs: All my favorites and all eggs. Some might argue that peppermint Christmas candy or Valentine’s Day Sweet Tarts are better, but they’re wrong. Easter candy beats all other holiday candies. I’m convinced.
Not everyone gets Twitter, I know. But I do. I have met some great people there. I gather recipes there. I get hilarious answers to my questions there. Yes, Twitter can be a major time suck, but it’s also brought a lot of people to my site who may not have found me otherwise. And… Continue reading Carpet Picnics and Chili Cheese Dip
