Hello Valentine! ❤

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!  I have a vintage Valentine for you today….my very favorite kind!

This heart locket belonged to my mom and I treasure it.

******

My mom and dad, c. 1941.

Double hearts.....

Dedicating this post to my beautiful, kind, loving mother…
Celebrating a life full of love, laughter and dedication to her family,
She lit up a room when she crossed the threshold.
Her laugh was infectious and her sense of humor unparalleled,
She could toss a pun quicker than the a blink of an eye.
Giving to others, and finding beauty in every person
Were the tenets of her life,
Which we, her children and grandchildren, strive to emulate.

Recipe: Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

A big thank you to Jessica of The Novice Chef blog for the recipe for Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies!   She has a free printable recipe on her site.  Click here for the recipe.

The Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies would make a great Valentine’s Day treat!

I made the Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies today and they are delicious!  They are rich, so you can eat a small piece and feel like you’ve had a triple treat!  This recipe also makes a lot of brownies, if you cut them into small squares, so it’s a great gift for relatives, neighbors, friends and anyone who passes by your kitchen window!

It’s fun to use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter too, as Jessica, of The Novice Chef did on her blog, and I did here.  You won’t get as many pieces this way, however.   Note:  The Novice Chef even has ideas for the leftover scraps if you use cookie cutters!   It’s your choice as always!  Use your wonderful creativity….make these ‘your own’ by changing up the recipe or using decorations.

 

One last thing……I think people would eat this brownie at any time of the year.  It’s not just for Valentine’s Day!

Happy baking and eating!
