pot o’ love

i totally prefer the low-key valentine’s day
and last night was just that…

my husband had class late
so i got up the strength to get back in the kitchen 
(the first time in a month, thanks to my bum foot!)
and cook his favorite dinner
(beef stroganoff)

with a deliciously rich dessert
fresh whipped cream
fresh raspberries
the recipe was quick and amazing- using only dark chocolate and water!
he came home with flowers and mango sorbet for me
we cozied up to an episode of breaking bad (totally obsessed!)
perfect, quiet night in…
hope you had a wonderful day!

sweets for your sweet

i didn’t make my gingerbread cookies this year during the holidays and i have been craving them ever since.
i adore how white icing looks on this cookie, so i thought it would be a wonderful twist to turn the traditional christmas cookie into a valentine’s tradition.
inspired by paper doilies and made with love…
the smiley heart is for you, mum.
