For Valentine’s Day you could make Raspberry Cream Cheese Heart Tarts, Dried Cherry Scones or these sweet little Puff Pastry Hearts, but put a cup of chocolate Mousse in front of anyone in our family and we would probably step on each other to get to it — lovingly of course! There’s nothing more fluffy, creamy and luscious when it’s made with the freshest ingredients possible making it the perfect indulgent treat for Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate mousse doesn’t need to be thick and pudding-y, though, it should be light and airy. This Eggless Chocolate Mousse Video will quickly show you how simple it can be.
Don’t feel like you need to make a 20 step dessert for your loved ones when you make a treat everyone will love.
When I want to offer a boost of protein to my kids, one of the first things I reach for is yogurt. With protein and calcium in every bite, yogurt is easy to digest making it a perfect food as a snack, breakfast or even dessert.
Annie’s is an organic brand our family has been buying for years, so now that their Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt line is available there’s one more reason to love them. It means a lot to me that it’s not only creamy and delicious, but also has no GMO’s, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and is made with simple, real ingredients. The obvious choice is to eat yogurt on it’s own, but I love coming up with other fun ways to incorporate it into recipes or serve along with it.
We have been using this Whole Wheat Pancake Batter to make cute bunny pancakes for breakfast. Chloe loves dipping them in Annie’s Summer Strawberry which has a fresh strawberry flavor that compliments the creamy flavor of the whole milk yogurt.
When you think about Valentine’s Day I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind is giving gifts to your spouse, loved one and/or kids. But what about all of the other special people in your life who go the extra mile to make it a happy place for you and your family? Valentine’s should be a time to celebrate everyone important in your life.
I love creating gift baskets which contain a few items I buy and a few I make. This year I created a few for my kids teachers by making my Dried Cherry Seed Crisps and adding a gorgeous box of Coupe D’Amour Collection and the Red Fabric Heart by GODIVA.
Instead of showing a little PDA (the thing that freaks my kids out when my husband kisses me) I’m sending a “PDG” – Public Display of GODIVA – to my kids’ teachers this Valentine’s Day to show them love for all they do!
I feel like these are the little moments I can really offer something special to someone who supports my kids all year long. There’s always been...
When my parents went out at night when I was a kid they would leave my brother and I with one of two foods: frozen fish stick platters or chicken pot pie. I don’t know if I was more upset about them going out or having to eat these frozen meals that tended to be reheated and mushy. The first time I had a homemade pot pie it was a total revelation. Not only was the crust perfectly crisp , but the filling was piping hot and creamy with tender bite sized pieces of vegetables.
As much as I love a chicken pot pie, the idea of a Veggie Pot Pie sounded absolutely delicious, especially when I mentioned it to my sweet vegetarian son. There are certain foods like pot pie that tend to be made with meat, so it’s extra special when I make vegetarian versions of a classic.
You can make one great big Veggie Pot Pie to share or make a bunch of individual ones which I find the kids adore. The best part is that you can make them early in the day or even a day ahead and refrigerate them until...
