What are your plans for Valentine’s Day and the long holiday weekend? Staying home? Well, have I got some great ideas for you to spice up your long weekend!
I cannot tell you how excited I am to bring you this newest recipe, read on for a couple of brand new recipes, along with some fun, creative Valentine’s day ideas!
NEW RECIPE! Easy Chocolate Loaf * Cake
I am so excited to bring you the recipe for this versatile, delicious chocolate cake.
*It’s is called a loaf cake, because the original recipe called for it to be baked in a loaf pan, which I love, simple slice and serve. But I also wanted you to know, that you can bake it in just about any pan!
Basic Vanilla Buttercream Glaze
A must have recipe for your recipe “box”, this basic vanilla buttercream glaze recipe is anything but “basic” in taste and ease.
Great for drizzling on your favorite bundt cake, loaf cake, quick bread, cupcakes, cookies, muffins — or just dress up your favorite canned cinnamon rolls (yes, I do canned cinnamon rolls!) <– my favorite brand.
We are pretty low key about Valentine’s day in our house, the practical side of me never wants to spend $$$$ on a fancy restaurant and to be honest, the thought of dressing up, overpaying for flowers, and staying out past my bedtime, is not appealing! LOL!
