Small-Batch Fudgy Dark Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches with Raspberry Buttercream

Dessert isn’t an everyday thing in my house, but when I make it, I think it should be special. Valentine’s dessert in particular, because for some reason it just goes hand-in-hand with the whole idea of romance.

Pecan Linzer Cookies with Cherry Filling

Pecan Linzer Cookies with Cherry Filling

Does anyone else remember being in elementary school and literally spending days hunting around for the perfect Valentine’s Day cards for your classmates? Everyone used to have to give a card to everyone – boy or girl – no matter if we liked them or not. (Which of course was good so that no one felt left out…but it left serious problems when it came to choosing the perfect card. It was a fine line between finding a pretty, flowery card for the girls without having it be too sappy and endearing for the boys. Ahhh, to have the problems of a fifth-grade girl again, […]...

Red Velvet Macarons

I had to save the best for last with my Valentine’s Day meal. After my white hot chocolate, your dessert cravings will probably be satiated, but there’s always room for a pretty little mac or two, right? ;)...

White Hot Chocolate

If you’re like me and have a the-darker-the-better mindset when it comes to chocolate, you’re probably wondering why on earth I used white chocolate to make this drink. I’m with you, trust me, I am....

Spiced Sirloin Roast for Two

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you probably know that I’m not the biggest meat eater; in general I really don’t make roasts (except roast chicken, which is a specialty of mine). For the most part I gravitate towards fish or veggie-based meals, so I don’t blame my hubby at all for being completely impressed (actually, shocked is probably a better word) when he came home to this lovely roast beef one day....

Baby Hasselback Potatoes

One of the things I love most about food blogging is checking out my fellow bloggers’ sites…I am inspired to no end by you guys! When I first started blogging (which feels like forever ago) I came across a recipe for hasselback potatoes on Sea Salt with Food. I thought they looked pretty fantastic and jotted the site down on a piece of scrap paper…and thus began my “to-make” list, which is now 12 typed pages long and ever-increasing....

Bean and Barley Salad {Vegan}

I don’t know about you, but I prefer a romantic Valentine’s Day meal at home over a meal at most restaurants. That way you get to enjoy a quiet meal with your loved one in the comfort of your own home without any waiting or traveling…and I’m guessing the food is just as good (or better!)....

Chocolate-Covered Marzipan Hearts

Most of us agree that it just wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without chocolate…but for me, it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without Chocolate-Covered Marzipan Hearts.  I discovered them even before I met my real Valentine (and no I don’t mean dark Swiss chocolate…I’m talking about my hubby ;) )....

Valentine’s Day Menu: Dark Chocolate Mousse

img_5694-small

This is the final course of our homemade Valentine’s Day meal.  And it really goes out with a bang.  It’s not your typical mousse, since you won’t find any eggs here.  Instead I used Greek yogurt to make it a little healthier (let’s face it, this meal was not light on calories, so we might as well make up for it a little bit ;) ), and also because with this method the dessert is literally made in minutes.  This mousse is so decadent you won’t miss the eggs.    I’m sending this mousse over to Natasha of 5 Star Foodie for her 5 Star […]...
