Luscious Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I happened across some delightfully sweet strawberries this last weekend.   It was all I could do to not eat all of them before they had a chance to become a part of a delicious dessert.  I had to guard them from the family, too.    They were huge, and a delicious dark red, and they smelled as good as they tasted.  I can almost smell the memory of them now…

Chocolate Fondue for Two …or Twenty

One of my favorite and fastest desserts to put together is fondue.  You can get as creative as you want with it, or just use what you have lying around in your fridge and pantry.  Chocolate fondue is my favorite dessert to whip together when I have all the girls over, or for a stay-in date night with my honey.  It takes minimal effort and hardly any time, which is nice especially when you want to spend time with your guests or your love.

Kissably Cute Hot Cocoa

I wish we still had construction paper “mail boxes” for people to drop off their cute Valentines.  Except, this year, instead of cartoon Valentines, I’d step up my game, and my cuteness and make these little lovelies.
