So it’s two days ’til Valentine’s Day - do you have any big plans? I know I said before that the Hubs and I don’t really go out on Valentine’s Day but I DO like to make a little extra treat for him to show him how much I lovvvve him all over again.
Oh, who am I kidding. This delicious Raspberry Cream Tart is a complete and blatant bribe since he does all of the laundry and puts up with all of my kitchen messes on a daily basis. [click to continue…]
Help! I am not sure where January has gone and I was hoping you could help me find it?
