    Ok, I’m going straight for the good stuff… I’ll have a slice of Easter Candy Pizza please:@) Happy March!

  2. Nice wrap up and a good reminder to print that chip recipe. I’m pretty sure I don’t need the recipe except it will remind me I want to make them when my brain gets overloaded!

    • Thanks Jackie, trust me, it’s all for the guys, but the Hassleback Chicken is pretty guilt free…I can’t wait to read your post about all the amazing places you’ve been this winter, I have been NOWHERE!
