Red Wine Chocolate Creme Brulee

I love Valentine’s Day!!! I feel like I say this every year in my Valentine’s Day post, but this holiday gets a lot of hate for being a made-up holiday. Aside from the fact that the holiday is named after a Saint, much like St. Patrick’s Day (which people don’t seem to be complaining about), it’s also a holiday promoting love. We shouldn’t need an excuse to celebrate love, we should be celebrating it every day, but why not have a day that revolves around love?! Plus, I’ll take any excuse for a theme, and to create a delicious dessert like this red wine chocolate creme brulee.

Chocolate Cherry Brownies

When I have a great idea for a recipe and it fails in testing, I despise throwing away the failure.  I hate to waste all those ingredients!  But these chocolate cherry brownies came about from two failed recipes with almost nothing going to waste and that makes me extra proud of these!

I know a lot of people hate Valentine’s Day or think it’s a made-up holiday, but it’s one of my absolute favorites.  I find myself defending it year after year as one of the best holidays. Aside from the delicious candy, what’s better than an added excuse to tell people how much you love them? Growing up, Valentine’s Day was the holiday where my mom would hide cards and gifts all over the house and all throughout our stuff so we would find cards and candy all day long.  It was the best.  It’s a tradition I’ve tried to carry on (as best as it can be in our tiny downtown apartment).

Raspberry Rosé Cake

Just because I’m out of town this week doesn’t mean I’m going to leave you hanging on a recipe!  But I am going to keep this post short and sweet.  Summer will be here before we know it and I can’t think of a better flavor combination than raspberry and rosé! Rosé seems to be trendier this summer than it has before, and rightly so.  Rosé is the perfect summer drink. Light, cool, refreshing, and most importantly, delicious!  And adding raspberries is really just a good idea. Continue Reading
