The Week Before Valentine's Day

This past week I made cookies...

Lots and lots of cookies.

To be boxed up and packaged

and delivered across town and across the country.

With my extras I made samples of a design I've been wanting to try for a long time

and Valentine's for the boys

My last order was red velvet cupcakes. I tried one, since it was a new recipe. The cake was good. I might make it again....although I would make it "red" velvet cake and omit the red dye. No one should eat that much red food coloring. Ever.

They are pretty though. Maybe I will grow beets this year and make my own red food coloring.

Happy Valentine's Day!
