It’s no secret that I love baking, basically everything and anything sweet, so Valentine’s Day is one of my favorites (any excuse to bake … and cover things in pink frosting and sprinkles is a great holiday indeed.) These are a few of my favorite recipes (some I’ve made over and over again, and some I can’t wait to try … either way, they’re all awesome).
