Valentine's Day should be celebrated everyday instead of once a year. We should celebrate love everyday. Whether it's Valentine's Day or not. However, it is a cute holiday. I do like the candy and chocolate and the colors of pink and red! Very pretty. Valentine's Day is also another excuse to eat chocolate and other sweets. This year, instead of buying candy for the kids, I am making chocolate & fruit dessert. You get chocolate, but you also get the fruits! Valentine's Day Chocolate & Fruit Dessert!
Every Christmas I make Chocolate Peppermint Bark. I should say every December, as I make it a few times for my home and to gift! I enjoy making goodies that don't require much work since I am usually making large batches. My favorite Christmas goodie is BARK! It is super easy and no cooking required! You really can't mess this up unless you scare the chocolate during the double boiler method with water. If that's the case, melt your chocolate in the microwave.
Lately most of my posts have been Pumpkin spice inspired recipes. After the holidays, I probably wont use it as much. December is more peppermint and chocolates for me. However, I will be gifting pretty jars of 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Pecans for Christmas. I am also going to make breads, like this chocolate pumpkin spice bread.

My favorite granola mixes are Peanut Butter and Chocolate, Cinnamon Chocolate, Oats and Honey and Vanilla Oats and honey. There are so many flavors you can try with granola. Today I am going to show you how simple it is to make Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola. Granola is a must have in my home. We add it to parfaits (using coconut whip in place of yogurt), as a snack, topping for açaí bowl and our favorite, served as cereal, with milk. Yet, we run through it within days as most bags are sold in smaller sizes. I do prefer some brands over others, Love Crunch being my absolute favorite.
