Today we are celebrating….it is Chez CateyLou’s 3rd birthday!!!! I can’t believe I have had this blog for 3 years! This is where it all started, with lots of help from TheBetterHalf!  It is so much fun to look at how much my blog has grown and changed since I began.  I have learned so much the past 3 years, met incredible people, and done amazing things – all thanks to my little corner of the internet.

We have a bit of a theme around here when it comes to celebrating blog birthdays…and it involves chocolate and peanut butter. 1st birthday. 2nd birthday. So I had to continue the tradition for the 3rd birthday, with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Heart Cakes. Since the big birthday is so close to Valentine’s Day, I thought why not make something to celebrate both of them!…

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.  :)

What a difference a day makes! Yesterday in NYC it was in the 50s and sunny and today it is 30 and snowing! We seriously got so lucky with the Superbowl weather.

If these don’t bring a smile to your face, I don’t know what will! Aren’t they just the cutest?  And so perfect for Valentines Day!…

It is time for another Mystery Dish post! This month, Allie from Baking a Moment  picked a fun list of celebratory ingredients for us. They were Champagne, Strawberries, Oranges, Beets, Filet Mignon, Lobster, Cream, Chocolate, Rosewater, and Rice.  Since champagne, lobster, and filet mignon aren’t in my usual cooking repertoire, I’m not really sure what rosewater is, and I am not a fan of beets, I decided to go with what I know and love – chocolate and strawberries! It doesn’t get much better than that.  Especially when combined in a baked donut – chocolate donuts with strawberry cream cheese icing to be exact!
