Top Recipes for Two

Every year, around this time, I ask my husband if he’ll be my valentine until he agrees.  I like to plan. 😉 Usually he says no until the day of and usually I ask him multiple times to see if he’ll agree ahead of time.  This is obviously a running joke between the two of us because we both know we’re our forever valentines.  Anyway, with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought you might be looking for some recipes to make for a romantic night for two.  I’ve got you covered with some appetizer, dinner and dessert ideas.  I’ve included all …

Soft and Thick Snickerdoodles

Another day, another batch of cookies. Lately, I definitely feel like I’m making more cookies than “regular” food. Tis’ the season. 😉 Pretty soon it will be all about salads and healthy foods. Anyway, I had to add a batch of snickerdoodles to my list because they are classic cookies. These cookies are soft and thick. I mean, just look at the photos for proof. They are sweet and full of warm spices and honestly perfect 365 days of the year. Back in 2018 I made these snickerdoodles. Those snickerdoodles are thin and chewy but equally awesome. Now you have …
