After all your wonderful ideas for Valentines Day, I was rather overwhelmed by the choices! Here is a few things we did, not just on Valentines Day but for several days before and after. Since we had guests Sunday, we had help in the eating.
Chocolate Almond Biscotti. I've been wanting to make biscotti and finding a recipe in Kay's Country Cookin' finally propelled me to try it. I didn't manage to get the final coating of chocolate on but we LOVED these and I'll be making biscotti again!
I made sourdough chocolate cake and attempted a layer cake, which collapsed, as usual. I really need to stick to bread baking. I turned to my usual trifle cure. Cutting up cake, layering chocolate pudding, cream and cherry pie filling makes a nice looking dessert even for cake challenged people like me.
The sweet dough recipe turned into cherry buns for breakfast. These were as yummy as they looked!
Thanks again for sharing all your ideas and Valentines traditions!
