Valentine's Recap and the Fate of a Bear

Valentine's Recap and the Fate of a Bear

I am very fortunate to have love in my life and Brian and I took the time on Valentine's Day to present each other with a few gestures of our affection. I cooked up a feast, he turned up the romance.



Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Scones
Breakfast was served with these delicious and moist Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Scones. Brian honored my recipe by devouring the whole batch and FoodBuzz honored me with a Top 9 spot.

Savory Valentine's Heart Crackers
Snacking during the day included these adorable Savory Valentine's Heart Crackers which are surprisingly light and healthy. They disappeared quickly and again, FoodBuzz honored me with a Top 9 for the recipe.

Creamy, Dreamy Chocolate Martini
I created a pre-dinner cocktail with the flavor of the day. This Creamy, Dreamy Chocolate Martini sure does goes down smooth!

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake
And how could I not present a chocolate dessert? In this case it was an ooey, gooey Molten Chocolate Lava Cake. So decadent!

In the non-food romance department I woke up to the fragrant smell of two dozen roses, chocolates (yes, more chocolate!) and an adorable stuffed bear, bearing a glittering gift.

Valentine's Recap and the Fate of a Bear
I know I am so very fortunate and could not have asked for a better day. There's only one small problem, though. My little tail wagger, otherwise known as Hadley the furry sous chef, believes firmly that anything plush and stuffed is a dog toy. The bear is currently sitting on a high table next to the vase of flowers and there, under the table, is Hadley... plotting how to get it :)



How did you spend your Valentine's Day?

    1. Hahaha. My friends are split between those that say I'll give her the bear and those that say she'll figure out a way to get it herself. It won't matter anyway because Brian will give it to her. She flashes him the sad puppy eyes and he turns into a big 6'4" mush :)

  5. You did have a wonderful Valentine's and a great blogging week as well! Your pup is very cute, funny how dogs ignore their own toys and prize one of your things.

  8. What a lovely Valentine's Day you two made for yourselves. We, too love to make Valentine's special, although we try to let each other know how much we mean to one another every day. This year it was a dinner adventure to a new restaurant which was kind of a bust - lights too bright, service too chatty, mediocre food. We had a great evening anyway, although we would have fared better in the food department with your menu!
