Triple Chocolate Buttermilk Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

The month of February and chocolate just seem to go together, so when I found out that this months Bundt Bakers required ingredient was chocolate, I was so excited. I saw this Triple Chocolate Buttermilk Bundt Cake on the cover of Southern Living Magazine and I fell in love! I had to make this for the glorious month of chocolate, I mean February! You are going to love this!

Valentine Table Top / Day 14 of 14 Days of Valentine's!

Happy Valentine's Day to you!
 Today I have an easy and inexpensive way to transform your table into a festive Valentine's Day backdrop for your meal.

Valentine Mousse Cups / Day 13 of 14 Days of Valentine's Day!

These Valentine Mousse Cups are special.
The cups are put together using Ghirardelli candy
squares and chocolate frosting. Then they are filled with
Chocolate Mousse. Although these are made with
the Valentine candy squares, any of the squares would
do, making this a special dessert for any celebration!

Chocolate Bread Pudding/Day 11 of 14 Days of Valentine's


Chocolate Bread Pudding is the perfect Valentine's Day treat because it is 
rich, and decadent! Then there's the chocolate! It's also such a 
                             comfort food. Few people can resist it.  This dessert takes some time to                                     make, but it can be made the day before you want to serve it, so the pressure is off!

A Mantel of Love!/Day 8 of 14 Days of Valentine's Day!

Because this is the first time I have had a fireplace mantel in a while,
I tend to want to decorate it for just about every occasion that comes around.
So for February, that occasion is Valentine's Day. I could have gone with
a President's Day mantel. It is certainly a special day, but I think that 
Presidents Day lends itself more to elementary school bulletin boards,
and probably wouldn't make it as a cute mantel. :)

Hidden Kiss Cookies/Day 7 of 14 Days of Valentine's!

Today's treat for celebrating 14 Days of Valentine's are cookies!
Hidden Kiss Cookies!
I thought these cookies were perfect for Valentine's Day.
Their name is so seductive, conjuring visions of stolen kisses
in the shadows, star crossed lovers that will never be together
to fulfill their destiny, or if you are a Peter Pan fan you know
that the hidden kiss is the kiss meant for your one true love.
So, I nominate these cookies to become the
Official Cookie of Valentine's Day!

There are lots of ways to customize this yummy popcorn!

Cherry Pie Bites/Day 4 of 14 Days of Valentine's/#Foodie Extravaganza


 Today we are celebrating Valentine's day with
Cherry Pie Bites!

Today is also the day for 
This month's main ingredient is cherries
which makes this recipe perfect for both parties!

These Cherry Pie Bites are simple, simple, simple!
I would have loved to use fresh cherries, but I called everywhere
I could think of, and no one has fresh cherries here in North Carolina yet!
So, I used canned cherries and pre made pie crust for
the easiest pie bites ever!

14 Days of Valentine's~Simple 10 Layer Mini Chocolate Cake


Thank you so much for stopping by on the first day of 14 Days of Valentine's!
Today's treat is a simple 10 Layer Mini Chocolate Cake.
 So, how can a 10 layer mini cake be simple?
This cake is a lot like one I have made in the past
 with chocolate wafers but with a difference.
The difference is the graham crackers, and with only a few ingredients it is very easy!
This cake would be the perfect compliment to your Valentine's dinner!
It has to be made 24 hours ahead of serving, so there is no last minute work to do!
