I actually have used this recipe for every kind of celebration under the sun like forgotten birthdays – yes I’m a horrible person that forgets everyone birthdays – actually planned birthdays (love you Facebook!), little life surprises like finding penny on my way to home, or eating pizza for 3rd time in the week (hey that thing needs to be celebrated!!), and actual life celebrations like an anniversary.
