Welcome to the combination of red velvet and creme brulee. With so much decadence in one dessert, you’ll be glad it only serves two.
When it comes to cooking holiday meals preparation is key, even when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Unless you are cooking the meal together, you don’t want to spend the entirety of Valentine’s Day in the kitchen so if possible knock out some steps head of time. So the day before you should marinade the meat and make this creme brulee.
This creme brulee recipe is perfect for Valentine’s day not just because it is red velvet, it only makes 2 servings and is pretty easy to make as far as creme brulees go. And creme brulee is fancy. By making it the day or two before means all you have to do is show off your pyro skills and toast the sugar on top right before serving. Dessert and a show!

Romance is a warm bowl of melted chocolate and all of your favorite things to dip into it. Make it ever sweeter with this easy two ingredient recipe including Nutella!
Nothing says romance like a bowl of hot melted chocolate and today just happens to be National Chocolate Fondue Day! I’ve already made a couple chocolate fondues (white chocolate, and a healthier version) which were served with eggless, raw cookie dough bites. But since today is also World Nutella Day I decided it was time to combine the two holidays and make the easiest, two ingredient fondue ever – Nutella Fondue.
For this fondue all you need is heavy cream and your favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread. On any other day that is not World Nutella Day you could also use any kind of spread you prefer (try peanut butter, almond butter, or straight up melted chocolate). But it’s time for romance and Nutella in preparation for Valentine’s Day, making this fondue a perfect addition to #TripleSBites this week.
What do you like to dip in your chocolate fondue? I went with fresh strawberries, pretzels, and marshmallows. Maybe you should create a fondue-s’mores and skewer the marshmallow and strawberry together and then sandwich them between two pretzels? Cookies, mini cupcakes, cookie dough, and other fruits would have been stellar as well. Let’s go for a dip.
When I dip you dip we dip.

Fluffy mousse made with pumpkin spice Greek yogurt is a great way to end a fall day. Serve with a spiced cookie.
Holy food coma. Peabody has outdone herself giving Kita and I a foodie/root beer tour of Seattle and I’m not sure if I will ever be hungry again. Doughnuts, fresh Greek yogurt, burgers, lab-style cocktails, Greek food, short ribs, bread pudding, and more pastries galore. I even spent $100 on root beer yesterday, 43 bottles of root beer that I somehow didn’t already have in my collection of 108. Yea, I think I made that root beer store owner’s day. Eventually I plan to post some pictures recapping this adventure but for now let’s take a gander at some mousse. Pumpkin spiced Greek yogurt mousse in fact decorated with chocolate dipped speculoos cookies made out to look like graves because Halloween is this Friday.

If you love pb+j then you’ll love this parfait. Peanut butter yogurt is layered with strawberry jam, fresh strawberries, and peanut butter granola. Prefect for breakfast or a light dessert.
After 4 awesome days of BBQ-festing it’s time for me to return to Knoxville. Memphis is especially fun in May and I couldn’t have picked a better weekend for which to return. I may need to detox with spinach smoothies and salads however, but in the meantime lets talk about parfaits.
Despite my love for all things peanut butter, it took me a long time to get on board with peanut butter and jelly things beyond the sandwich. For some reason it did not appeal in dessert form but that all changed when I had the peanut butter and jelly candy bar from Trader Joe’s. Then when I got my hands on the KIND peanut butter granola I decided it was time to make a peanut butter and jelly parfait! With all the fresh strawberries I’ve had on hand after picking them on three separate occasions it was an easy decision to incorporate them and the freshly homemade strawberry jam my dad and I made.
This recipe is written for one since it is Single Serving Sunday, but it’s incredibly easy to multiply for more servings. As you can see I ended up making two.

Want a warm breakfast treat or dessert without leftovers? This microwavable single-serving bread pudding is customizable to your cravings and ready in under 5 minutes.
I may not pay attention to college basketball with the dedication that I do to college football but I do enjoy a good March Madness! Although I find it almost pointless to watch more than the last 10 minutes, it is entertaining to fill out a bracket and then watch it unfold. Unfortunately Ohio State didn’t make it out of the first round, but I have faith in the remaining Big Ten teams. With one already in the Final Four, tonight will determine whether or not two more teams will join the ranks.
What does basketball have to do with this bread pudding? Absolutely nothing. Unless of course you stay up too late watching a game and need a quick, hot breakfast in the morning. Make it your own by mixing in your favorite things. I added chunky peanut butter and strawberry jam for a PB+J version and topped it off with a scoop of ice cream for dessert. Bread pudding is not only acceptable for breakfast but also dessert!

It’s time to pass around another cookbook! This month we picked recipes from The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook by Sheila Lukins.
Since Valentine’s Day is approaching (and I happened to have most of the ingredients for this recipe), I decided to make the white chocolate mousse. White chocolate is is my favorite kind of chocolate and I couldn’t deny it in mousse form. I was slightly disturbed by how many dirty dishes were created in the making of this dessert, but thankfully it was well worth it (Kita, you were right). Want to make it more festive for Valentine’s Day? Add red food coloring or top it with colorful red/white/pink sprinkles.
