#FreshTastyValentines Giveaways

With Valentine’s Day nearly upon us, it’s time to start thinking about how to show the people in your life that you love them by appealing to their stomachs. Being that I’m not the best at expressing my feelings in words, this is the ideal scenario for me. Last year, Camilla (Culinary Adventures with Camilla) gathered a group of bloggers to facilitate just that with what was called #TripleSBites – celebrating romance with spicy, saucy, and sexy bites. This year she is hosting again but with a new name: #FreshTastyValentines.

What I made for #FreshTastyValentines:
Monday 2/1 – BBQ Bacon Mango Pizza
Wednesday 2/3 – Wine Smoothies
Friday 2/5 – Strawberry Basil Shortcakes with Chocolate Balsamic Drizzle
Monday 2/8 – Stay tuned

Bloggers’ 40+ Favorite Holiday Cookies

Instead of being selfish and compiling a list of my favorite holiday cookies on my blog, I decided to ask some of my food bloggers friends, “What is your favorite holiday cookie recipe?”. The most common reaction: “How am I supposed to choose just one!?” Which means that the one that they selected is the best of the best and this list will not disappoint! While there were trends, I was still impressed by the variety. This list is like a digital cookie exchange which will now be a useful resource for your next holiday cookie exchange!

P.S. This list was compiled in the order that I received them. Mine is at the bottom because I had to make a last minute decision to narrow down my own favorite!
