#TreatYourself is the name of our St. Valentine’s game. Whether you’re snuggling up with your beau, your bestie, or your Netflix account, let yourself fall in love with these cheesy, breezy, beautiful recipes.
Every year, I try to make something homemade and meaningful to give to my friends and colleagues for St. Valentine’s Day. A few of my favorites, like sugar cookies with royal icing, dark and white chocolate shortbread, and chocolate covered peppermint patties, I make in the shape of hearts.
With so many indulgent meals and desserts on offer during the holidays, it’s easy to lose track of our routines and health goals.
We’ve all seen that shot on TV or in movies (or on infomercials!): the overwhelmed home-cook, diligently following a recipe from a stained cookbook, all four burners buckling under over-boiling pots and pans, the person chopping while stirring while dropping the wrong ingredient into the wrong pot.
Consider, for a moment, the versatility of vegetables: broil them, puree them, roast them, boil them. Eat them raw, buy them frozen, preserve them, can them, jar them. Even gather them in a bowl to decorate your coffee table!
Just when you think grilled cheese sandwiches couldn’t get any better! We made our own pimento cheese with roasted red pepper, cheddar, and mayonnaise.
