March behind the scenes

Every year my busiest month on the blog is March.  Most bloggers gear up for Thanksgiving and Christmas but people love to come here for Easter dishes and treats.  This past month I perfected my Chocolate Chip Muffins which took years to do.  Every time I would make a recipe I was never pleased...
