If you hadn't already clued on, yep, it's Valentines Day tomorrow. Whether you believe/participate/love or hate it, I see it as an excuse to eat more chocolate than usual and snuggle up on the couch with a good movie and my gorgeous man. Go all out or not at all... we can all have a little more chocolate in our lives now can't we? And after this post stating chocolate can actually help with weight loss... why not?
I got busy in the kitchen experimenting with a few recipes this week, but I have to say, the simplest, easiest one with the least amount of ingredients is still hands down the winner.
