Since you might not have someone taking you out to eat or bringing some beautiful plate to you in bed, then you should just make yourself something sinfully good!
When I was thinking about this recipe, I had a certain group in mind….the single ones in the batch of people who see it as a romantic day. Since you might not have someone taking you out to eat or bringing some beautiful plate to you in bed, then you should just make yourself something sinfully good!
For orthodox Christians like myself, we start lent tomorrow so even though I would love to have this for brunch with a glass of champagne, I will be having mine later in the evening with a glass of vitamin water while catching up with my second favorite show…..How to Get Away With Murder.
I hope you all have a love filled day!
