Another year, another birthday

We had a birthday this week! 
My 5-year-old is now a 6-year-old and her birthday wishes were pretty easy to fulfill:
She wanted a picnic.
She wanted to go to iJump with a friend.
She wanted a cake that looked like her dog.
She wanted a "Red Death" dragon. 

Done, done, done and done. :)

The cake is clearly not professional, but I thought it turned out like a reasonable likeness of our dog. :) She was happy at least.

Valentine's Day Truffles Recipe

Nothing like a little chocolate for Valentine's day, right?

A few years ago I made truffles for neighbor Christmas gifts and I put them in these cute little origami boxes, so I thought that'd be fun to do again.  Here's that post.

But aside from that, I have made a lot of truffles with Emily and her family, literally thousands for various events. 

Here is the original recipe from one of our very early posts!

Enjoy it and share it with someone you love this year. :)
