I hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful week and that you especially enjoyed a delicious Valentine’s Day! What did you do to celebrate and, most importantly, what did you eat? I’ve had a great deal of success in the kitchen this week and can’t wait to share all of the recipes with you in the coming days. I kicked off some Mardi Gras-themed food yesterday with my Bourbon Bread Pudding and have a couple more festive recipes up my sleeve to get you ready for Tuesday, so stay tuned!
As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy!
Red Velvet Ice Cream – An amazing combination of cheesecake ice cream and red velvet cake crumbs. Love this!
Baked Hot Chocolate – A quick and easy decadent dessert using only four ingredients.
Chicken Tortilla Soup – A copycat recipe of Max & Erma’s famous tortilla soup – thick, spicy, cheesy, and absolutely delicious.
Bourbon Bread Pudding – Kicking off some Mardi Gras food with a real kick – bourbon-laced bread pudding with an awesome bourbon sauce.
