Ugh, More Winter ... Here Are Some Delicious Groundhog Recipes!

The more wintery it gets, the more delicious you are, groundhog!

Well, on Thursday, Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog popped out of his hole, saw his shadow, and sobbed like a baby while fleeing into his namby-pamby hideaway. So, we’ve got six more weeks of winter.

Well, since we have a lot of time to sit indoors — because of, you know, all the winter — let’s talk cooking. Specifically, let’s talk cooking groundhog! 

Here are some of my favorite recipes featuring this yellow-bellied mammal!
