Is it just me, or is anyone else always on the hunt for good snack ideas? I can usually manage coming up with a healthy lunch or an inspired dinner, but my afternoon hunger often caves to chips, salsa, and melted cheese. Seriously, you'd think I would have outgrown that old standby by now... I was digging through some old papers the other day when I found a note I scrawled to myself back in 2011: Eng muff + feta + apricot. Yum.

Confession: I was in my early 20s before I knew what garlic was. I don’t think my family ever cooked with garlic, unless it was garlic powder. We did, however, eat a fair amount of garlic bread. And you know how garlic bread has little bits of parsley on it? I thought that was garlic. For years I thought that was garlic. How To Roast Garlic + Roasted Garlic Grilled Cheese Recipe

the purple spoon As much as I tend to despise winter I do love a good blizzard. It keeps you home bound, you get to sleep in, it’s practically a guaranteed pajama day, it’s a perfect excuse for decadent hot chocolate, and I’m not the one shoveling us out afterwards. Well thanks to Nemo I got one of those home bound days :) I slept in to a lazy 7:20 am, I most certainly made hot chocolate and I baked. I baked so much I ran out of flour-it was wonderful. Most of my experiments involved chocolate and strawberries because that’s the first thing I think of around Valentine’s Day :) While some of the ideas still need tweaking this chocolate strawberry shortcake turned out divine! It’s the perfect blend of an old fashioned shortcake with a chocolate-y twist!
