Random Thoughts on Valentine’s Day

Random Thoughts on Valentine’s Day

This will be only the third time in my life that I’ve had a real actual Valentine…and I’m 40. Needless to say, I’m not very good at the romance thing. My husband, on the other hand, is a romance ninja. Single people, don’t feel bad. I know you will though. I hate the pain you...

It’s a Macaron Renaissance

Can’t afford to take your Valentine to Paris this year, huh?  Why not create a little Parisian romance with a bite-sized French cookie that’s all the rage – the French macaron.  Not familiar with these sweet little confections?

Valentine’s Day Specials 2015

To help you out, here are our top picks for a swanky (and straightforward) V-Day date night: Ella Dining...

Foods for the Soul
Strawberry Sweet Rolls with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

Strawberry Sweet Rolls with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

Tender whole wheat rolls filled with spirals of sweet berries & topped with a decadent drizzle. They’re the healthier breakfast version of chocolate-dipped strawberries!     Every Valentine’s Day throughout my childhood, my mom would wake up a little bit earlier than normal and set out all kinds of sweet treats for my brother...

Chocolate Red Hot Cookies

Chocolate Red Hot Cookies

Decadent brownie-like cookies studded with pieces of cinnamon candy. They’re like a cross between chili-spiced chocolate & brownies—and SO addictive!     Last year, my guy basically forgot about Valentine’s Day. In his defense, he volunteered every Friday night that year, regardless of the month or day, so… It was just his luck that...

National Hot Toddy Day

I love recognizing obscure food holidays as much as the next girl, but I rarely get the motivation to actually participate. This past Sunday however, was National Hot Toddy Day, and I only felt it fitting to partake. After spending the bulk of the day on the slopes, nothing sounded nicer than curling up...

The Holidays Have Come and Gone

The Holidays Have Come and Gone

If you are anything like me, you hate to see the holidays go. After all of the planning, prep, fun, and excitement, the regular everyday busyness of life takes over again and the holidays become just a memory. This year, mainly because of our pending move, but also maybe because we bought a dead live...
