I’m practically giddy that it’s Daylight Savings this weekend. We’re springing forward y’all. I don’t know about you, but I’m beyond ready for longer days. Longer days mean spring and summer are right around the corner along with warmer weather. I’m not a cold weather person. Winter is not my jam. I like boots and a roaring fire but otherwise I could skip the entire thing and be okay with it. I’ve considered moving even further South every winter. Truth. These Limoncello cookies are like spring and summer all balled up into a few glorious bites.

Pink Macarons.

It’s the month of all things pink, red and everything heart shaped. You know the holiday. They’ve had the shelves stocked with chocolates and goofy little stuffed animals since Christmas Eve reminding us it’s coming. I’ve never been a jewelry and flowers girl but food, yes I’m all in. Especially when it’s carbs or dessert. Pretty pink dainty French cookies, most definitely fall into the yes category for me. Better known as macarons. It’s a sweet meringue-based confection made using: egg whites, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, almond flour, and food coloring. They’re delicious and you can fill them with whatever your heart desires.

I am from the South and yes I’m Southern as grits. We’ll put bbq sauce on all the things. I’m not even kidding. I even like to dip my fries in bbq sauce. Pretty sure I was spoon fed bbq sauce as a baby, but that’s neither here nor there. Don’t blame my Mom, I probably grabbed the spoon and did it myself. Now you know my love affair with sauce runs deep. I like mine sweet, tangy and with a kick. Spice is nice. Sometimes though spicy just doesn’t agree with me. Does that stop me from eating it? Nope, not a chance. I don’t let a little heartburn scare me off. I just keep the PEPCID COMPLETE® handy. I take the directed amount and it’s taken care of quickly and let’s me keep on keeping on.

Spaghetti with Butter Roasted Tomato Sauce.

Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best ones. While fresh tomatoes are amazing and I’m very much looking forward to summer so I can have them  (hello it’s ridiculously cold out. I’m currently hunkered down in my house for snowpocalypse 2017 and probably will be for the next few days), they’re obviously not available right now. No worries though, this recipe calls for whole peeled canned tomatoes so it’s all good.
