Can you feel the romance in the air?
I only ask because Valentine’s Day is coming, and that means it is time to start thinking about treats to give the ones you love. We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Shenanigans Homestead. I do not require bouquets of roses, boxes of chocolates, or fancy dinners out. Instead we keep it low-key. Typically we make dinner together – he grills and I do the rest – and we may split a bottle of some sort of sparkling wine. I also go out of my way to make a special dessert that combines what he likes with my love of chocolate. It works for us!
This year the folks at Lucky Leaf have decided to help you, my lovely readers, share the love by giving you a fun gift pack. It includes a can of Premium Lucky Leaf Pie Filling, fun cupcake/muffin baking cups, a few recipes, and a cute little bakery bag for delivering your yummy treats. There are three ways to enter.
Easy, yes? Well get to entering. I will select a winner at random from the comments below on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2013 at 12pm CST, so good luck!
I have written about the versatility of Lucky Leaf pie fillings before, and I must admit that it is an easy way to add some fruity pizazz to your baking. Trust me, Lucky Leaf is for more than just pies!! To demonstrate that, I whipped up some scrumptious bars that combine a crisp cookie base, a layer of silky chocolate cream cheese, sweet black cherries, and a buttery crumble topping. These are so easy to make, and the combination of chocolate and cherry would make these a wonderful Valentine’s Day dessert! If cherry is not your thing you could easily use Lucky Leaf Premium Strawberry or Raspberry filling instead.
