Ina’s Tri-Colore Salad

I’m grossly uncool when it comes to Valentine’s Day…I LOVE IT. It’s just a nice excuse to plan an elaborate meal for no real reason and make others, or even just yourself happy. A few girlfriends tried to talk me into a weekend away, but I stuck to my tradition and whipped up a nice…

Asparagus Puff Pastry Bundles

I made these asparagus puff pastry bundles for a far-too-decadant side for early Valentine’s Day dinner last weekend. The leftovers have been a fun dinner when eaten with a simple green salad. I mean they are basically puff pastry pizza, so what could really go wrong? Without further ado, here’s another easy (and make-ahead recipe)….

Give Your Valentine (Cordon) Bleu Balls

I have a confession:  I love Valentine’s Day. I detest heart-shaped things- jewelry, desserts, home goods- but I adore this holiday. Yes, it’s totally cheesy and a little embarrassing to admit, but it’s true. Relationship or naw, it’s an excuse to pamper someone you love (that someone can totally be yourself), pop some quality vino,…

A Valentine’s Chicken

  The Beer Brined Roasted Chicken from the Cherry Bomb cookbook was so delish that I made it twice in a week. That’s right, I had two dinner parties in a row, and it was wonderful the first time, so I decided to work on perfecting it on round two. The recipe is time consuming…

Love Sweet, Love, Take 2

We heard from Chef Jaime and her Valentine’s Day plans. I thought you might be curious to hear what I’m preparing. I’m such a cheeseball, I do kind of love this holiday. Not in a fancy dinner and gifts sort of way, but more in a 5th grade arts and crafts sort of way. I’m…

Love, Sweet Love

  Hello, loving readers! We are prepping for Valentine’s Day with a little inspo from Chef Jaime today. Yours truly will share her similar thoughts soon and we can decide together who’s version of love and baking is the grossest…or at least the ooey-ist, gooey-ist. What are you baking for your hubs for Valentine’s Day?…

Cupid in the Kitchen

Not usually one to care too much about Valentine’s Day, I’m happy to say that I just had the cutest one ever…Despite being sick with a super gross cold that, because it’s Valentine’s Day, I shared with the Chap. You’re welcome! A couple days prior, I received the most insane arrangement from the bestie. OMG….

Will You Be My Valentine?

So you’ve navigated through birthdays, the holidays, an anniversary, and now… Valentine’s Day. Does anyone REALLY like Valentine’s Day? While I love any holiday, I certainly am not one of those ladies who takes the holiday too seriously. Last year, I was out with a large group, spicing up Miami, and two of the betches…
