Happy Friday, and Happy SPRING!  Spring is here, and I hope that Mother Nature catches up soon, because I'm over this bitter winter.

Hey, you know what "winter" sounds like?  Winner! 

The WINNER of last week's Eat The Yolks giveaway is Betty Jo!  She commented and tweeted about the giveaway.  Betty Jo, email me to claim your prize!   For the rest of you, don't worry!  If you didn't win this time, you can find Eat The Yolks by Liz Wolfe on Amazon.  Dare you to check it out.
