It's February!

For as much as I moan & groan about how much I hate snow, I actually really like the month of February. Though certainly not because of the weather.

Selfishly speaking, it's my birthday month, and it means I get to plan a fun weekend where I have an excuse to drink through most of it! :) I've got a lot of pals who are February babies too, so there's always people to see and places to go every other weekend of the month. Anyone have any great cake recipes?

But outside of cocktails and (shivering in) cocktail dresses, there's always a lot going on food-wise in February that generates lots of possible blog material. There's the Super Bowl, and the healthy takes on typical greasy Game Day snacks. There's Chinese New Year- dumplings are good luck, and even better luck for me that I get to eat them. Lots of them. The Oscars usually fall in February, and catering an Oscar party is just as exciting as betting on who will be taking home awards. And love it or hate it, Valentine's Day is as good a reason as any to experiment with some chocolate recipes, or at the very least, indulge in a couple chocolate martinis while cursing Cupid.

Cheers to an event-packed month! Is there anything that you look forward to in February?
