Valentine's Day Dinner

My roommates and some friends celebrated Valentine's Day together this year! We first had dinner, for which I made a salad, zuppa toscana, chicken in basil cream sauce with linguini and a three-layer chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting. After eating, we rearranged all of our artwork hanging on our walls (it was time for a change). Then, we played Just Dance! (Our favorite thing to do these days).



(Unfortunately, I was too busy getting everything ready that I didn't take the time to take pictures of anything besides this).

So many cupcakes.

I've been on a cupcake making trend recently. They are one of my favorite things to make right now.

These are red velvet cupcakes that I made to share with work for Valentine's Day. The frosting was super good, but it wasn't my favorite recipe of red velvet cake. I probably wouldn't make the cake recipe again. There are much better ones out there.





My grandma turned 90 years old yesterday! We had a celebration for her birthday on Saturday, so I made these coconut cupcakes for part of the dessert. They turned out to be one of my favorite cupcakes that I've made yet!





And in case you are wondering or haven't been outside... It's getting warmer! (It's still freezing, but no longer negative freezing). See how it was super duper cold a month ago?


Now it's only super cold.


It feels like Spring is practically upon us compared to last month.
