You light up my life Valentine

Here is my dilemma: I would like to make my hubby a gift for Valentines Day but I don’t want it to be centered around candy. My hubs and I have set a goal for ourselves to improve our diets and try to lead a healthier life. For us this includes no added sugar.  Despite the fact that candy is my favorite food group (I might be related to Buddy the Elf) and Valentines Day is a major candy type of holiday, I want this Valentines Day to be centered around activities and gifts that you can’t eat.

Yarn Letters Are Evil…

Out of all the pins I’ve tried this one is definitely ranked number 1 as most time consuming.  So I must warn anyone reading this that if you attempt this pin make sure you have 4 friends who really love you and will help.  Or have a comfy chair and a show to binge watch while you do this.  I ended up watching the whole 4th season of Homeland. (Carrie is crazier than ever).

Ashley also did her version with XOXO and it turned out amazing!  I would like to think this is due to my trial and errors. 🙂xoxo (5)

Jalapeno Popper Recipe

My boyfriend Ben LOVEEESSS Jalapenos and anything spicy.  So when I came across a Jalapeno Popper Recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything with over 4,000 pins I had to give it a try. Seeing how Christy used crescent rolls also inspired me to think of other great ways I could use it.  Maybe a pulled pork recipe or buffalo chicken next?  Who knows, but this recipe is definitely worth a try.

Bacon Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Well I have to admit we were really against the Bacon Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushroom recipe. We didn’t think this recipe could possibly be that good, but we the pinners never disappoint.  Let us tell you, this recipe deserved all 3,000+ pins it received.
