Sweets for your Sweet
Valentine's Day is this Friday. Everywhere I look there are chocolate hearts, roses, lingerie and champagne. Doug and I gave up going out on Valentine's Day several years ago. While I love my husband dearly and enjoy romantic nights out with him, I don't see the need to spend tons of money on a multi course prix-fix dinner. Instead, Doug and I like to stay in on February 14th, make a delicious dinner and watch a movie. We usually then go out on the 15th or 16th to do something special when reservations are easier to get and no one is forcing you to eat an eight course tasting menu.
In preparation for Valentine's Day, Elizabeth Street, one of my favorite "cool mom" sites asked me to share a few recipes for healthy Valentine's Day treats. All of these treats are easy to make, better for you than traditional goodies, and are made with beauty foods which will keep you feeling sexy (not bloated!). Head over to Elizabeth Street to see the recipes!
Happy Valentines Day! I know one little girl who is in the spirit...
