Happy Valentine’s Day!

February 14, 2014

Valentine's dayWhether you’re spending today alone or with someone special, make it a fun day and indulge! And yes, that is a roundabout way of saying eat all of the chocolate you can without feeling guilty. There are lots of ways to be creative, such as making your own homemade cards or baking heart shaped cookies for your friends. A tip on making cheap Valentine’s Day treats without breaking the bake: go with box mixes. Homemade is fun, but it can be expensive on a budget. So go with pre-made frosting, boxed brownies, ready to bake cookies, and you will make a great experience without the extra expense!
