I’d like to say that I was so consumed with Superbowl food, that I completely spaced on Valentine’s delicacies. But the fact is V-Day falls so close to Haley’s birthday that all my focus is always on her special day. Also, if it doesn’t involve a large group or having the day off from work, then it ain’t no holiday!
But I know most of you are expecting soooomething. Come on Amy! Show me a red and white cake…some heart shaped cookies…a picture of people kissing…something!
So I bring you these Raspberry Rockets from Fix Me A Snack. They’re red and white, involve chocolate, and no cooking. A great after-school-snack or welcome-home-from-work-dear goodie, or I-could-have-just-given-you-fruit-but-stuffed-chocolate-inside-it treat that I says I love you.
if when you make these, be sure to buy ripe, but firm raspberries, very gently rinse them and allow them to air dry before stuffing them.
Looking to get more organized? Learn a better method to menu planning? Tired of of spending way too much time looking through the index of all your cookbooks for an ingredient?
Then you’re going to love Eat Your Books.
This website has indexed thousands of cookbooks by ingredients, ethnicity, special diet, and course. All you do is tell EYB what cookbooks you own by entering the ISBN number. Any book that has been indexed will be added to your virtual bookshelf. Then within seconds you can search all of your own cookbooks for ingredients you have on hand. The search shows you the name of the recipe, the ingredients, and the book it’s in.
Thought it couldn’t get any better? It does. Eat Your Books also has an extensive list of magazines and now blogs which have been indexed. And I’m one of them. So even though I don’t have a recipe index on my blog, EYB has it for me. Loving that!
Have extra spinach to use up? Chicken was on sale? Greek yogurt about to go bad? Do a search for those ingredients and all of your cookbooks, magazines, and blogs which have recipes using them will come up. Pretty incredible, if you ask me.
