Valentine’s Day Desserts From the Past

I just got home yesterday from a few days in New York to visit my best friend Virginia.

My first trip in 9 years without the kids. Can you believe it??

So here I am, but no time to write much because I’m trying to clean up the mess that 3 boys and a husband make in 2 days.

OK, it wasn’t THAT bad. (My husband does read these posts you know…)    😉

Anyway, here are some desserts from last year.

These are cupcakes (obviously)– and I made the chocolate hearts on top.

Now back to my story…

So I drove to Staten Island on Thursday.

Yes, right in time for big snowstorm Nemo.

Interestingly, I didn’t even know about it until I was halfway there.


Chocolate Caramel Brownies (the hearts are powdered sugar).

I got to see all the snow, drive around in it, freeze, pay a ridiculous amount of money for gas, etc.

I even got yelled at while waiting to get gas.

Not sure why– I guess people get really stressed out when it’s snowing.

Especially when it’s a big scary snowstorm with a cute fish name.  🙂

I just thought the snow was pretty…

But the craziness was worth it to see my best friend and her family.

And I actually drove back on Saturday with no problem.


Low fat frosted brownies.

So anyway, now that I told you a random story and threw in some dessert pictures– I have to get going.

Time to start making this year’s Valentine’s Day desserts!
