A couple days ago, I set out with the supreme intent to make my husbands coworkers breakfast. It didn’t work out so well. I was attempting Lemon Ricotta doughnuts and my ricotta did not set up right, which caused a big mess and me throwing the whole project away due to frustration.
But then I remembered that Valentine’s Day was here. I scrapped the breakfast plan and set out on something ‘cute’. This something cute just happened to fall in line with the cake I sent in last week. Salted Caramel Buttercream. They have got to be getting sick of it by now.
Brownie Cookie Hearts with Salted Caramel Buttercream
While I was making the dough, I panicked. It was crumbly, it wasn’t holding together, I thought I was on a losing streak with baking. After being refrigerated it shaped up. It was still crumbly, but as you can see, I was able to roll it out and cut out the hearts. Aren’t they cute?
Ignore the finger in the picture.

5 Bloggers You Admire or Enjoy the Most
1. Preserve and Honor
First of all, I can’t even walk in to Arlington without bursting into tears. Second, this ‘kid’ was what? 17 when he started this blog/project? A teenager. Kudos to him. I’d be a mess.
I check it every now and then to see what he’s up to – to read the stories he posts – to learn about the lives of the Fallen.
2. The Beauty Department
This blog helps me fantasize about fashion. I’m so laid back with my clothing. Don’t get me wrong, I love to be super girly, but I don’t know how to put on eye liner and even though I have long hair, I never know what to do with it. This blog answers all of my uneducated questions.
3. The Whisk Kid
I’m a whisk person. I LOVE whisks and have a fairy extensive collection of them. But, her blog isn’t about whisks, it’s about food. Food and life – and the trials and tribulations thereof.
4. Never Not Knitting
I love this blog for a multitude of reasons. I love her patterns, first and foremost. I also wish I could knit 24/7.
5. Complete Running
I have loved distance running since I was in high school. My brother was a sprinter and a good one at that, but I could never imagine my self doing that. Running for miles and miles on end? I’m your girl. This blog does a really great job answering questions and they have great articles about running. It’s a wealth of information.
Hope everyone has a fantastic Valentine’s Day!
