Once Christmas is over, I’m immediately on the countdown to spring.  I hate the cold weather.  Hate. It.  Seriously, it was 12 degrees here over the weekend and I was wearing long underwear under my jeans and sweatshirt.  In my house.

To warm myself up, I spent a lot of time over the weekend baking.  Oh, and drooling over all of the awesome stuff you guys linked up last week!

I am so excited to see what great things you’ve all been making this week, too.  Please go ahead and link up anything you’ve made – in your kitchen or otherwise!   Also, feel free to share the link party with all of your blog friends.  I’d love to have some new people stop by – it’s a great way for me to discover lots of awesome new blogs!

Let’s get onto the features!

This week’s top viewed post were these Creamy Lemon Bars from Mom On Timeout:

Holy moly, isn’t this strawberries and cream bundt cake from Chocolate, Chocolate and More gorgeous??  Perfect for Valentine’s Day next month!

Did I mention that it’s crazy-cold here right now?  I could definitely use a big bowl of this Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup from Kim’s County Line:

And what about these cinnamon roll donuts from A Sweet Baker?  You can’t go wrong with a combination of cinnamon rolls and donuts, if you ask me!
