I’ve not ever really been a fan of V-Day, but you sort of make me want to love it. I think it’s because of how much you love and give. Hugs sweetie!

I really appreciate the combination of beautiful shapes with delicious taste. Looking at the pictures what immediately came to my mind is the gift I’m gonna give to my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. I’ve made a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zacโ€™s cooking school here in Vancouver – cooking classes for couples and your recipes will most certainly be among the first ones we’ll try together. :)

sounds like fun – I love cooking classes – have a great time!
