Valentine’s Day Specials 2015

For many, Valentine’s Day is one of those love/hate holidays. We love the food and quality time with those we care about, but sometimes the hype and planning for a special evening can get overwhelming.

Tender whole wheat rolls filled with spirals of sweet berries & topped with a decadent drizzle.

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...

The Holidays Have Come and Gone

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...
