Chocolate Sugar Cookies |

My husband and I don’t really do much to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This year we’ll probably just enjoy a nice meal at home together as a family and share a bottle of champagne after the kids go to bed. No frills, no fuss.

Chocolate Orange Ricotta Scones |

When was the last time you had a scone? I’m willing to bet that whenever it was, it was at a coffee shop or bakery. While I admit I have enjoyed many scones on the go, the ones I’ve baked at home are always sooooo much better.

Homemade scones are quick and easy to make, plus extremely adaptable. You can fill them up with whatever you like really, though this particular chocolate + orange combo is my current fave. Continue Reading…
