Valentine's Day

Drunk In Love

Happy Friday Friends!

Valentine’s Day might be over but I’m still bringing the love...or maybe alcohol right into the weekend! MK, Theo Shane, and I had a great V-Day staying in. Theo sipped his milk while MK and I enjoyed wine, cheeses, and some steak. I do love our tradition of staying in!

Today’s cocktail is seriously delicious. I’m not typically a mason jar kind of person but I saw this adorable cup at my local Shop n’ Save and couldn’t resist making a drink for it (and then later use it for decoration).

What you do:

Simply add your booze, and top with Strawberry Lemonade!

You can add sprinkles to your rim if desired.

I hope you have a great weekend full of love and maybe a little hootch!

Give Me Some Sugar

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Doesn’t it seem like we were just celebrating Christmas? And now Valentines Day is next week! In honor of that I usually share a tasty treat. I eat really well 95% of the time but I give myself a break when it comes to V-Day. I mean what better of a time to treat yourself? Today, I’m sharing not one but two SUPER easy recipes that you can make for your love without having to stay in the kitchen forever. 

Nutella Pies

What you need:

Nutella

Pie crust

Heart cookie cutters if you’re feelin’ fancy

What you do:

Have a little fun with this one! Play with different sized hearts and make your own design. But basically just fill the middle of your heart with Nutella and add the top sealing with a fork. Pop them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes on 350 but I watched mine until golden brown.  

Red Velvet Oreo Truffles

What you need:

20 Oreos  

4oz low fat cream cheese

Chocolate

Sprinkles to decorate

What you do:

Throw the Oreos in a food processor then add cream cheese until everything is stuck together. Then, make into balls and put them in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes. Melt chocolate, and dip your Oreo balls into it. Add sprinkles and you’re done! Just put them back in the fridge for them to harden.  Store them there too, when not eating.  

Both of these recipes are so easy that they would also be fun to make with your littles!

Enjoy the day, make it sweet!

A Chocolate Treat

In my opinion, the month of February is all about decadence. And what's more decadent than chocolate? So just for today lets throw our diets out the window and indulge a little with some chocolate and wine. When it comes to cooking and baking it's absolutely a form of therapy for me. Being in the kitchen is one of my favorite places, put a glass of wine in my hand and I may never leave.

If you're looking for something delicious to make this Valentine's Day I've got you covered with this super easy and fun Chocolate Pie.  

Heart Chocolate Pie

2/3 evaporated milk
1/2 package chocolate chips
3 tbsp butter
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour
2 eggs
2 tsp vanillla extract
3/4 tsp salt
2 pre-made pie crusts

Preheat the oven to 375. Press one of your pie crusts into a greased pie pan.

and microwave the first three ingredients for about 1 1/2 minutes. Make sure to whisk every now and then to prevent it from getting chunky.

Whisk sugar and flour into chocolate mixture, then add the eggs one at a time, then add vanilla and salt. Pour into pie shell.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes and if you're adding hearts add them here and put back in the oven for another 20 minutes.

For the hearts: get your second pie crust and simply use heart shaped cookie cutters and place randomly.

Enjoy and Happy February!
