How do you survive winter?

Here is how I have been surviving winter...

Lots of creating ...lots of Instagram...and a sunny grapefruit and olive oil cake with dark chocolate. This cake is a must for winter. You zest two grapefruits a and massage it into sugar in the raw...Ahhhhh the smell was to die for especially in a cold winters day. Not too sweet and not heavy. Perfect with tea! Don't forget to try some Chicken Paprikash, a new venture for me. I used a recipe from Food 52. A new favorite sight of mine. I would add some mushrooms and cauliflower next time or even omit the chicken for a vegetarian version.  
I usually wouldn't admit this but I am longing for spring right about now. This winter is feeling a bit claustrophobic this year for some reason... This is odd for me as I adore winter. I must be getting old or just tired of loading wood into the stove! 
I will have the crochet hearts pattern written out for you soon. I know I'm late or consider it really early for next year. 
Blogging lately has been a bit hard as we are in desperate need of a new computer. It takes hours to upload photos. So today I decided to phone blog! 
At present moment we are on our way to visit family in upstate NY where temps are -4...my best friend is in Puerto Rico leaving for a cruise... I think I'm going to do it her way next year! 
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day and stay warm wherever you are! I'll be back sooner than later with some new creations to share. 
Be well,
