Are you prepared for Valentine’s Day? Even if you aren’t celebrating with a sweetie, you should celebrate your love for yourself. After spending a couple V-Days single, I realized you don’t have to have a significant other to enjoy February 14th. Focus on appreciating yourself; partake in little indulgences like a big box of chocolate or a glass of wine. There’s no reason to wallow in self-pity; just grab yourself some good food, and you’ll feel great!
Or, if you’re looking for something even better, you can bake up something sweet and indulgent. Tomorrow, I’m bringing you my ultimate Valentine’s Day recipe round-up. But in the meantime, you can get a sneak preview by checking out the V-Day recipes I posted this past week. And since I didn’t do a Weekender last weekend, I’ll post last week’s recipes as well.
Let’s review, shall we?
- Copycat Chocolate Candy Shop Blizzards
- Mini Cauliflower Crust Broccoli Quiches

Did you see Smart Cookie on DailyBuzz Food this week? My General Tso’s Chickpea Patties made it into the Top 9! They’re a healthy, vegetarian alternative to General Tso’s Chicken, so put down that take-out menu and check out the recipe here.
And now, my friends, it’s time for another day in the life of the Smart Cookie Cook. Churning out these posts isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when you have two nosy, mischievous cats conspiring against you. This is what happens when I try to take the “Cast of Characters” photo I do for every recipe:
I don’t get paid enough to deal with this! Good thing I love what I do and have such wonderful, supportive readers like you.
