Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
How are we doing on this fine day? All’s good here on the Spoons front, and I’m in one of those good moods where I can’t even figure out what’s making me so happy, but hey… I’ll take it!
It also cooled down a tonne over the past couple of days, which means I’m back to feeling like a [semi-]productive human being again. Woohoo! Actually, it really just means that I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen, because everyone knows that the best thing to do on those cold and rainy days is bake. And that means that I’ve got some pretty tasty recipes to share with you guys this week.
But not today. Today is all about the Link Love and sharing some awesome links I came across this past week. So I hope you find something you enjoy, and I’ll see you tomorrow with some good food involving bananas and cake 😀
For my head…
