Valentine Baking...

My true love 
lies in baking...
I love the whole experience.. 
the smells..
the little tastes here and there.. 
beautiful product afterwards.. 
and the fun of giving it away.. 

I love it.. 
even when it comes from a box 
and only takes 30 mins.. 
In fact, 
sometimes that is the best kind!

Here are some Valentine baking inspirations 
from Martha Stewart, of course!

on chocolate and nothing else!

For something more simple, 
but just as lovely..
