This is the Valentine’s Edition of Weekend Bites. I’ve been all over the web and I’ve come across dozens and dozens of Valentine’s Day related posts (and there’s more to come) so I decided to share some of my favorite ones. Believe me, it was hard to narrow the list down. But I did and lets get a move on, because the countdown to Valentine’s Day has begun. Tie your aprons and grab your whisks because this love stuff means serious business in the kitchen.
Allie, over at Baking a Moment, had me at chocolate mousse when I stumbled upon her Strawberry Rose Chocolate Verrines post. Beautiful and elegant this recipe is perfect for Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if my local grocery stores carry rosewater but I will have to look, fingers crossed one of them does.
Meriem, from CulinaryCouture, not only shared an amazing recipe for Valentine’s Day but also shared with us how relentless a food blogger can be when she (he) gets an idea. She shared her initial vision and her recipe testing and then the final result. Which looks pretty darn delicious and beautiful. I can’t wait to make them. I love, love, love cream puffs. Just take a look at her photograph, how could you not want to make these? Check out her post and recipe for Chocolate Filled Cream Puffs with Strawberry Sauce.
During my blog reading I came across a post that definitely shakes up butter. Andrea, from Dishing Up the Dirt, shared her recipe for Beet Butter. That’s right. Beet Butter. I love beets and this is a very creative idea that I do have to try.
Okay, just reading all of these posts makes me feel like I should hit the treadmill. But they all look so worth a little extra time on the treadmill, right?
With so many delicious ideas out there, are you baking or cooking anything special for Valentine’s Day?
