By now you have probably heard that Punxsutawney Phil, that most famous of Pennsylvanian marmots, did not see his shadow, foretelling an early spring this year. Lucky us!

Aside from wresting a fat, sleepy rodent from his burrow, there are other traditions associated with this day…including eating groundhog! They are not a threatened species, and are generally considered to be pest animals, especially to gardeners. So maybe it is not shocking that when chef and food writer (and farmer) Ian Knauer found his vegetable beds decimated by a groundhog, he decided to eat the culprit, an event chronicled in his book The Farm, accompanied by a recipe for Groundhog Cacciatore.

I think I will stick to a different Groundhog Day treat, this adorable groundhog-shaped Groundhog Day Cake from CakeSpy!
