    We are taking a small trip to Vegas with 4 other couples. A nice, little getaway…Probably find a quiet place to have a little dinner somewhere. Always wanted to visit Hubert Kellers’ restaurant.

    hmm, what to make for V-day? I want to attempt chocolate mousse. I mean the good stuff, I never made one before and I think that is what I want to make. I guess it depends on how Hubby is treating me, lol

    My plans for Valentine’s Day? Probably cooking something wonderful for my hubby. . maybe a Korean food dish. . and baking something sweet too. not 100% sure yet. . if we didn’t have kids, I would say, Valentine’s Day would be for my HUSBAND to plan. . but those days are over! :) We might go someplace fun over the weekend though! :)

    Due to recent surgery I know my husband and I will be unable to celebrate by going out. This would be a nice treat to give to him for all he does for me each and every day.

Gonna change it up and surprise him this year with something different thanks to you Averie! It’s time for a change! Now I’m sharing the recipe. =)

    Haven’t decided for sure yet, but I’m planning to make a raw dessert I’ve never attempted before. I have plenty of recipes to choose from, so it will depend on my mood and the items I have on hand.

    Holly — January 6, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    I think I’ll make heart-shaped shortbread cookies with macadamia nuts that are dipped in chocolate. That’s for dessert, but I haven’t decided on the dinner menu yet since it’s only the beginning of January.

  27. #
    Wild Child — January 6, 2013 at 9:42 pm

    I’ll be making heart shaped tarts filled with jam. They’re a family tradition. We only make them for Valentine’s Day, and I look forward to them every year!

    Carolyn — January 6, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    I have been married to a wonderful man for about 33 yrs. At this point in our relationship he shows me everyday that I am special and that he loves me. I am blessed indeed. So I really donot need one day a year to remember that I am loved. We remember it and celebrate very quietly.

    A.haulcy — January 6, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    I am making ribeye steak Mac and cheese and for dessert cute little mini red velvet cupcakes with heart shaped redhots to decorate the top!

    Janet — January 7, 2013 at 4:07 am

    I will probably not be making a special dessert as we have cut a lot of that out except for special occasions. The pictures look great and I plan on saving this post to look into each recipe more.
    Have a beautiful day!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

      Janet — January 7, 2013 at 4:11 am

      Valentine’s Day is a special occasion but not my favorite at all. :( We chose not to celebrate it in our home. Just another day…….I know the chocolate and card companies do not like people like me and that is ok.

    Nancy A. — January 7, 2013 at 4:30 am

    I always make my heart-shaped chocolate chip cookie! The family expects it now. They eat it right down and I love to make heart-shaped anything.

    barbara n — January 7, 2013 at 4:37 am

    We actually don’t celebrate Valentines Day, but when I was little my mom would make PB bonbons every year. That’s the only time she’d make them. Maybe I need to learn.
