Happy birthday to you…Happy birthday to you…Happy birthday dear sweet-lab…

Happy birthday to you!

This is our second year together. You and I, me and you. This is awkwardly starting to sound more like an anniversary than a birthday.

But really, what can I say about you that you don’t already know, sweet-lab? You frustrate me at times (that’s the truth). But above all you bring me so much hope and happiness. Thank you for two wonderful years of sweetness and delicious creations!

To celebrate I’m doing a roundup/countdown of my top 10 favorite sweet-lab recipes of this past year. Sweet-lab, don’t get a big head, but today is all about you. Happy birthday, you silly little blog, you.
