It’s almost here! Valentine’s Day is always so fun because it’s pretty low effort. One of my love languages is baking for people, so I wanted to post some of my all-time favorite treats to spoil people.

First is the red velvet heart cake. The fun thing about this cake is that it has a chocolate frosting instead of the classic cream cheese frosting. It’s a fun twist and so unexpected when you cut into the cake (or cupcakes!) to find a red velvet cake.

MY FAVORITE RED VELVET CAKE RECIPE 

Red Velvet Cake

Cream 1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

Add 4 Tablespoons cocoa,

1 Tablespoon water

1 Tablespoon red food coloring

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups sifted flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in 1 Tablespoon white vinegar

1 cup buttermilk

Add buttermilk alternately with flour.  Beat as little as possible. Divide dough into two 10” round pans filled 2/3 full. Line bottom of pans with parchment and grease and flour sides.  Bake at 375 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Icing:

6 Tablespoon butter

3 Tablespoon cream cheese

1/2 cup cocoa

4 cups powdered sugar

2 Tablespoon boiling water

2 Tablespoon evaporated milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat butter and cream cheese for 30 seconds.  Add cocoa and 1 cup powdered sugar.  Add boiling water and remaining powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency.

GLUTEN FREE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

I had to include something for the gluten-free crowd (ahem) and tried several recipes of peanut butter cookies before finding one that I liked. It was simple and easy and delicious! The first batch I sprinkled with Himalayan Salt (love that salty-sweet combo) and the second batch I attempted to drizzle semi-sweet chocolate on top. Don’t judge my drizzling skills guys… I can’t do it all!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup peanut butter (Skippy works best)

1 cup sugar

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 and grease cookie sheets (or use parchment paper).

Beat together peanut butter and sugar until smooth.

Add 1 beaten egg and baking soda; beat until well-combined.

Refrigerate dough about 20 minutes.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and flatten with fork tines.

Bake for about 10 minutes, until cookies are puffy and pale golden brown.

***I tried a batch with natural peanut butter and they weren’t nearly as delicious.

GLUTEN FREE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

And if all else fails, and you just don’t have the bandwidth to bake, check out my friend’s instagram bakery @yaya.bakes. She ships! Order soon to get in time for February 14th.

    I love this outfit! I tired to recreate it for Valentine’s Day as it will be my first time out since becoming a mom. Thank for the inspiration, you really helped me get out of my sweat pants funk and start to feel like myself again. Xo
