There’s still time! 😉
I found this eBook over at Amazon today, with 41 assorted Valentine’s crafts, for the whole family to make.
Included in this collection is a lovely Valentine’s Day Shawl (crochet).
That pattern alone was worth the .99 this eBook cost. 😉
I also really like the:
-Rose Bouquet Ball
-Valentine’s on a Stick
-Vintage Spool Valentine
I think it’s so special to make gifts for those we ♥.
Even if it’s just a special cake or card, if it’s made with ♥ and comes from the heart, it’s worth more than any store-bought gift could ever be.
Are you planning to make any gifts for Valentine’s Day?
I hope this post/eBook will inspire you too! 😉
Happy Crafting and Weekend!
The month in Canada that usually heralds the last, cold blast of winter. On the plus side, February is also the month of ♥ and Valentine’s Day! And what better way to celebrate than to make some oh so easy, homemade chocolates for you and those you love.
I have quite a collection of chocolate heart boxes from over the years. Some so beautifully decorated, they are like works of art. I find it hard to discard/recycle these. So much better to fill them up again, with yummy chocolates from the kitchen. 😉
The following is a recipe from my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians that was also featured in my craft book: A Year of Crafts, years ago as a Valentine’s project. They are very easy to make but still decadent and delish.
See page 2 for complete recipe.

Is there ever such a thing as TOO MUCH chocolate?
IMO, no, there isn’t. 😉
With ♥ DAY just around the corner (and nothin’ does say lovin’ like something from the oven!!) I thought it was a good time to share another chocolatey good recipe from my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians.
This is actually a cake recipe as it was originally written, but I like to make cupcakes for (ahhemm) portion control LOL, yeah right. 😉
No, I actually just prefer cupcakes. Little personal, mini cakes to enjoy and great to add to lunches too. 🙂
***I’m including the complete recipe on page 2.***
If you do make these as cupcakes instead of a cake, reduce baking time to 20-25 minutes.
These are extra chocolatey good, with dark cocoa and mint or regular chocolate chips.
And if you’ve never made a cake with mayonnaise before, you’re in for a treat. So moist and rich.
I made 10 large cupcakes when I made these recently. And I do mean large!
Add a dusting of icing sugar or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side if you like. No icing required.
Here’s another recently posted chocolate recipe: Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins you might want to try too.
Happy Baking !
