Tomorrow is Valentine’s so Happy Valentine’s to you all!

I’m busy in packing mode. The youngest and I are leaving way too early Friday Morning for her class trip to Washington DC. I’m one of those people that hates to come home to a dirty house, dirty laundry, chores to do. I know it’s hopeless since I’m leaving the hubby and 2 teenagers behind but I still have to try. At least I know everyone will have some clean clothes to get the week started. I’ll deal with what I have to when I get back. It’s going to be a great trip, a good group of kids going and so much to do. They’ve even squeezed in a trip to Baltimore for the day.

I’ll be sharing cookies all weekend long on my Facebook page so be sure to pop over for some great ideas. Probably the best thing about facebook, being able to schedule posts.

So on to the features, here’s what caught my eye last week

Cinnamon Chocolate Cake with Cinnamon Mascarpone Frosting from The Sweet Chick
Elegant Danishes from The Pint Sized Baker 
Beef Penne Pasta Bake from Yummy Healthy Easy
Crocked Cherry Cola Chocolate Cake from The domestically Impaired Guide to the Retro Kitchen Arts
Homemade Ritz Crackers from French Press 
Slow Cooker Double Chocolate Cake from Sugar n Spice Gals
