There’s something about a holiday that makes me want to eat! Seriously, it doesn’t matter the actual holiday, just give me food + something to drink and I’m happy. That’s possibly the reason that I often find myself sharing recipes around the holidays. For this Valentine’s Day (tomorrow yay!) is no exception.
