Caramel Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies | - the perfect Valentine's Day treat!

There are only 5 days until Valentines Day! Do you have fun plans? I’ve actually never really been that into Valentine’s Day – but I do like any excuse I can get to bake delicious and festive treats. There is just something about heart shaped sprinkles that makes any baked good taste better! Like Caramel Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies. Sure these fudgy chocolatey cookies stuffed with ooey gooey caramel and melty chocolate chips would taste amazing on their own – but the Valentine’s sprinkles just make them so darn cute!!  So I guess I liked – I am into Valentine’s Day.  :)

Burnt Sugar Almonds - perfect for a Food Gift this holiday season! |

There are 7 more shopping days until Christmas! Do you have everyone crossed off your list yet? If not (and even if you do!) I have a wonderful idea for a holiday gift – a gorgeous new cookbook! This book, Almonds: Recipes, History, Culture is full of gorgeous photos and tons of delicious recipes. It would be the perfect addition to any cook’s collection, and also makes a great coffee table book.

I love the idea of making something from a cookbook and then giving it as a gift with the book. I made Burnt Sugar Almonds from the Almonds book and wrapped them up in a cellophane bag tied with a pretty little ribbon. It makes such a cute and thoughtful gift, not to mention a delicious one!

Peanut Butter Brownies |

Today is a very important day – it is TheBetterHalf’s Birthday! As the biggest chocolate peanut butter lover of all time (I’m pretty sure he thinks he was the first person to like the delicious flavor combo), I of course had to make him something choco pb. And since I already made a chocolate peanut butter cake for Chez CateyLou’s birthday, I made TheBetterHalf Peanut Butter Brownies! Fudgy chocolate brownies with a thick peanut butter layer sandwiched right in the middle – if that doesn’t scream Birthday Treat, I don’t know what does!
