Bake From the Heart

Posted on: Tuesday, February 7, 2012

I don't have the problem with Valentine's Day that it seems many people have. You either love it or hate it, or maybe I just notice when people have strong feelings one way or the other. I think it is a nice day. I don't believe the real happy, wonderful couples that you and I know and admire wait for a day in February to acknowledge love and appreciate one another. The holiday is a good excuse to do something a little special though! If you're going the food route, I prefer a special home-cooked meal, or baked goods; it shows a little more effort than a box of chocolates from CVS (but, I mean, we all have our traditions. Husband and I went to IHOP right after we got married, so I can't judge). Valentine's Day isn't too big a deal for me and Kyle, but it is a good enough reason for me to bake him a carrot cake, his favorite!
