I was so excited to share these Easter cookies with you this morning. It is officially spring, March is almost over, Easter is less than three weeks away – so I figured it was definitely time for Easter recipes. Then I woke up this morning and it was SNOWING. Somehow it just seems wrong to be eating pastel M&M Easter cookies when it is snowing. But you know what – these cookies are too good to not share with you. So snow or no snow, let’s eat Easter cookies!

Good morning! Apparently it is National Pancake Day. I’m not sure how I missed that one – TheBetterHalf just emailed me to let me know! As the pancake queen, I’m kind of upset with myself for not knowing about this awesome holiday. I might have to eat a plate of these for dinner to make myself feel better. Or these. Or these.

So I don’t have pancakes to share with you today, but at least I have the next best thing – cookies! I am on a roll with the St. Patrick’s Day recipes. I just can’t help myself – I will take any excuse I can to make fun and festive treats. I posted these Irish Cream Cheesecake Brownies the other day, and today I have St. Patrick’s Day funfetti chocolate chip cookies for you!

It is time for another Mystery Dish post! This month, Allie from Baking a Moment  picked a fun list of celebratory ingredients for us. They were Champagne, Strawberries, Oranges, Beets, Filet Mignon, Lobster, Cream, Chocolate, Rosewater, and Rice.  Since champagne, lobster, and filet mignon aren’t in my usual cooking repertoire, I’m not really sure what rosewater is, and I am not a fan of beets, I decided to go with what I know and love – chocolate and strawberries! It doesn’t get much better than that.  Especially when combined in a baked donut – chocolate donuts with strawberry cream cheese icing to be exact!

Is everyone getting excited for Valentines Day? I must admit, I have never really been into Valentine’s Day.  It was just never my thing (somewhere, TheBetterHalf breathes a huge sigh of relief…).  However I’ve crossed over to the food blogger dark side – you know, when you post recipes way before the actual holiday (like my Thanksgiving spread) and get overly excited for every little holiday (I mean who wouldn’t want to celebrate national cookie day!).  And really, when candy and cute colors like pink and red and adorable sprinkles are involved – well how can I not be on board with that?! So I guess I was wrong – I am into Valentine’s Day! And so I made you a perfect recipe for Valentine’s day – Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies….
