To me, brownies are the Plain Jane of the dessert table. I'll usually pass over those stodgy squares for something more pert, like lemon squares or a cup of pudding. But add something creamy to the top of a brownie, or perhaps some tart fruit, and I'm all in. These brownies are all dressed up and ready to catch someone's eye: Their thick, fudgy bottom is studded with raspberries and topped with a sweet, creamy goat cheese swirl.
It has become something of a tradition to line up our favorite food-related Valentine's cards every year, for your perusal. Valentine's Day is a week away so you still have time to do a bit of shopping for food-lovin' sentiments! Love comes in all shapes and flavors this year, many guilty — from French fries, to roast dinner, to milk and cookies, here are 10 food-lovers' cards from Etsy.
Special moments and holidays don't have to hit you over the head. Sometimes they can be small additions to your everyday routines that can cause a smile or a touch of special-ness to your average Tuesday. This year we're not focused on a dish to make someone fall in love, but we have melted over these marvelous milk hearts.
Lindsay of the lovely food blog Love & Olive Oil and I have something in common: We like boozy cakes. We also like layer cakes with a serious footprint; if I'm going to eat cake, I want cake — preferably stacked up four layers high. This chocolate cake packs a lot in — red wine, blackberries, buttercream — and it's tall, so it fits the bill admirably.
Valentine's Day is only two weeks away. Thinking about breakfast in bed for your Valentine, kids, friend? (Or maybe even for your own sweet self?) Then a plate of raspberry heart shaped pancakes will do just fine.
We're always on the lookout for sweet sentiments for Valentine's Day, especially those that aren't loaded down with a ridiculous amount of sugar. Forget chocolates and check out this edible glitter-stamped fruit idea instead!
When it comes to Valentine's Day, I like to keep it simple yet rich. After the healthy living and fresh start of January, I like to splurge a bit on Valentine's, whether it's just for myself, or for myself and a loved one. Here's a very, very simple three-course menu you can whip up tonight for one or more!
Happy Valentine's Day, dear Kitchn readers. I know some of us love to hate this Hallmark holiday, but it can also prompt us to take a moment to acknowledge and be thankful for the ones we care for. I can't think of a better way to show my love than in the kitchen. After all, food is love.
