The weather outside is frightful, but the baked goods are so delightful, so since we’ve no place to go*, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! 🙂

P.S. We can’t decide on a name for our new owl friend – we’ve tweeted at J.K. for help, but she receives thousands of tweets from fans so we’re not counting on a response. If anyone has ideas, let us know!
