Valentine's Day Dessert

Who doesn't like Chocolate Covered Strawberries?!?!?!

I decided to make Chocolate Covered Strawberries for Ryan as a Valentine's Day surprise, sadly it was spoiled when he went into the fridge when he came home from work!  But the strawberries were absolutely delicious.  Since the strawberries are in season this was the perfect dessert!

Belated Valentine's Day Dinner

Valentine's Day dinner was celebrated the weekend after and since I was busy at school Saturday my wonderful fiancee made dinner.  I gave him the option to make a recipe I chose or to choose one for the Food Network magazine that just came in the mail.  I do have a large heavy box of Food Network magazines packed away.  I think I need to unpack those at some point that I have settled in my new and temporary home.  Now to find where that box is, haha!

Super Bowl Dinner


When deciding what to have for dinner I wanted something with shrimp.  We had to decide between three recipes found on foodnetwork.com.  One Giada recipe, one Barefoot Contessa recipe and a Food Network Magazine.  Ryan said that he wanted the Food Network Magazine recipe which was a Cajun Shrimp and Rice, which I found very fitting for Super Bowl since the game is in New Orleans, LA.  So this is the perfect Super Bowl Dinner 47.

It's Super...

When watching an episode of Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off on Food Network Sloppy Joes were made for a kid's party and Ryan had the craving for Sloppy Joes.  So we went to the computer to find a recipe for Sloppy Joes.  We looked at a few recipes and narrowed it down to a Rachael Ray recipe and a Guy Fieri recipe which is kind of funny.
