  • Best of the Web: Valentine’s Day

    via someecardsvia

    It may feel like 2015 just started, but somehow it’s already the middle of February. This year is flying by (probably with a little help from all those snow days we’ve been having up here!), and now is the time to celebrate our valentines. For me at least, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romantic love; it’s about the love I have for my friends, my family, and–perhaps most of all?–the baristas at my local coffee shop. And is there really a better way to show love than to share delicious treats? Ok maybe, but I have yet to find it. However, I HAVE found these delicious recipes for you to try over the next week…

  • Give the Gift of Food

    One of my favorite things to do is give gifts, so it should come as no surprise that the holiday season is my favorite time of the year. Since buying presents for everyone you know can become an elaborate task, a fun and inexpensive alternative is making gifts for your loved ones instead! Homemade gifts not only show that person that you care enough to spend the time making something, but that you specifically thought about them while choosing and making the one-of-a-kind gift.
