A Valentine’s Treat

It’s Valentine’s Day, y’all!

It should come as no surprise to you that this holiday, like most all in my life, are somehow related to food.  This is why I have to weigh-in with you every week.

Well, that, and I have a little Wendy’s Double Stack fascination.

Anywho, here’s what’s on the menu this Valentine’s Day at our house:


The World’s Best Sugar Cookies, hands down.  Turns out, sugar cookies ain’t just for Christmas, y’all!  Please, please make these for your family. Only, when you do, throw an extra cup of sugar and another teaspoon of vanilla in the dough. Extra sugar and vanilla make me happy. The icing is just confectioner’s sugar and water, with a bit of coloring.

If you’re lacking a Valentine, this’ll bring ‘em from far and wide. Big Daddy’s gonna eat himself silly on these.

We’ll be having these, too.


I’ve made cake balls for you here before, but never these. These are Valentine’s Day, Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake Balls.


And the best part? They’re strawberry, so I can count that as fruit, right? Just use the regular cake ball recipe with a strawberry cake mix and strawberry icing. They’re delicious.

Or, at least that’s what the Diva told me.

And, while this is not exactly on the menu, I thought it important.

Love one another,
