And FYI, Matt heated the coconut butter in a pot of hot water on the stovetop to soften it for drizzling like in this post.

I could do without any more snow. we’ve gotten way more than usual here in St. Louis. I definitely brought the snow from Detroit when I moved!

That muffin sounds ridiculous! Breakfast looks delicious today. Thankfully we don’t have much snow in the forecast and it’s actually supposed to be -2C on Sunday which is almost tropical for us in Ontario! Have a great day Kath!

Mmm, chocolate, cherry, and coconut reminds me of German Chocolate cakes. Definitely a good thing to wake up to.

Love the slippers, I have the same pair. Though mine look a lot more ‘worn in’, thanks to my pup!

We had a light dusting last night, but it didn’t stick and it is supposedly warming up to the fifties this weekend. So maybe you guys will, too. :) That muffin looks super delicious! Happy Thursday, K. :)

Perfect celebratory breakfast! I was really dragging this morning because of so much energy spent on cheering our boys on – def. a strong coffee morning. Rip ‘em up! Tear ‘em up! Give ‘em hell! Duke!

The muffin looks nice and moist. If I had them in my house, I’d have a serious muffin addiction problem.

We got snow in D.C. too. Just a sprinkle though. I’m over the snow.

Go Carolina! (sorry, my fiance is a UNC guy)

I thought you were going to say the snow was melting and I was going to rejoice. Instead, I’m a little sad.
