“Love is in the air … everywhere I look around. Love is in the air … in every sight and every sound.” Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away! Now, I could take it or leave it honestly. Mike and I don’t celebrate. Sometimes we exchange a card but that’s it. We make sure to show each other our love throughout the year so we don’t have to save it all up for one day. I often find a note written in crayon on the bathroom mirror or a tiny paper stuck inside one of my magazines reminding me that I’m loved. I try to do the same things for him as well.

But this year I’m kind of excited for Valentine’s Day because it’s Maddy’s first year in school, ok it’s only preschool but she has classmates and will be handing out valentines for the very first time. It’s a small thing but I’m exceptionally psyched for it. I’ll be baking up some adorable cupcakes for her class party which I know the kids will love. Perhaps I’ll even whip up a batch of these red velvet chocolate chip cake batter cookies!

Remember those funfetti cake batter cookies I made for Food Fanatic last month? Well, I decided to make a red velvet version because they are just too easy not to! These would be perfect for a class party or for surprising your loved ones after a weeknight dinner. The cocoa flavor of red velvet with mini chocolate chips scattered throughout will have them swooning.

These cookies were my creation for Secret Recipe Club this month! I took a peek atΒ It’s Good To Be The Cook this month. Beth is 27 years old and lives outside Philadelphia (So close to me! We should get together!) She of course, loves to cook, eat out and travel. She’s a total dog person (me too!) and a Philly sports fan. Her site is filled with drool worthy deliciousness!

This Italian hoagie dip definitely needs to be made in my kitchen as soon as humanly possible! But of course my sweet tooth is always in high gear so naturally I turned to sugar. These apple toffee blondies with brown sugar frosting were calling my name but ultimately, once I landed on her red velvet gooey butter cookies I knew I’d found my recipe for the month. You’re gonna love these! Soft, chocolatey and sure to make everyone swoon.
