Here's the second installment of Sunday Shorts which features bitty pieces of news from my meanderings around the foodie blogosphere and sometimes offers tidbits a little closer to home.
A great big Happy Birthday to Hannah, my granddaughter who turned 3 yesterday. We had
her party at Chuck-E-Cheese, celebrating with pizza and cupcakes, fun and games, and lots of Dora presents. Chuck-E himself (a great big, tall, fat rat) was there, visiting all the birthday kids; when he came over to Hannah, he scared the holy be-heck out of her and she burst into tears and ran screaming for her mom. Bad Chuck-E!
Reeni, of Cinnamon, Spice, and Everything Nice, is in love.
Cynthia, of Tastes Like Home, has recently published My Caribbean Cookbook: Tastes Like Home, and will be writing a guest post here next month.
Teresa, of Mexican-American Border Cooking, celebrated Chinese New Year, Southwestern style.
The Crunchy Chicken is challenging all of us to reduce the food we waste in her Food Waste Reduction Challenge for February.
Need a hug? Chef Bliss offered everyone big virtual hugs on National Hugging Day. Just in case you missed it, I'm offering this Hug Coupon, which is good every day of the year, to anyone who needs a hug, whenever they need a hug.
As is the tradition, Sunday Shorts ends with a delicious chocolate cake. Deeba, of Passionate About Baking, has created a beautiful, absolutely delicious Coffee Mocha Gateau for all of us to enjoy.
