strawberry topped sugar cookie:

i made my own sugar cookie mix, but you can just buy pre-made sugar cookie dough. bake as directed.

*you can use a cookie cutter to make hearts.  i used an adorable heart dish that i found and instead of making cookies, i made a heart shaped sugar cookie bar.

the topping

  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 oz of cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

mix all of this and top each of your cookies or bars.  next, cut up strawberries and bon appetite!

refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving!

happy valentine’s day

8Bit Heart Cookies

Snack or Die has a new recipe up just in time for Valentines Day!

8Bit Heart Sugar Cookies

Mmmm pixels and sugar, a match made in heaven! If youve been hesitant to try a Snack or Die recipe because you feel your confectionery skills are not up to par, this is surely a good beginners project. Hell all you need to do is buy a vat of pre-made sugar cookie dough, a heart sapped cookie cutter and some M&Ms and youre halfway done! I love that the only problem Jocelyn ran into was getting the right color M&Ms, however her solution was quite clever…and delicious…

“What I ended up doing is pouring a bag of M&Ms into a small dish and ate all the non-red M&Ms. Problem solved.”

chocolate truffles

i first tasted the incredible decadent treat at a whole foods near me.  Lula’s chocolate truffles are the most scrumptious and pretty truffles i’ve ever had.  not only is their packaging adorable and eye-catching, they are local and 100% natural.  located in Monterey, California, Lula’s chocolates are owed and operated by Scott Lund.  he named Lula’s after his grandmother, of whom taught him how to make the truffles.

with Valentine’s day coming up, this would be the perfect treat for you loved one.  retail price is approximately $27.99 per large box, $8.95 for a 4 piece small box, and can be found at your local whole foods market, or check on their website for a store near you!

fake Tiffany’s for Valentine’s day

i have ALWAYS been a fan of Tiffany & Co. what girl isn’t? it all began when i was a girl, probably 7 or 8 years old, and i saw the infamous Audrey Hepburn movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. not only is Audrey a classic, sophistacated starlet. but she lived a girl’s dream! she was a sexy party socialite with a handsome mad trying to win her affection! and her mascot was Tiffany’s!

years later, Hollywood released another film, which further reassured my obsession with Tiffany’s. the flim, titled ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ starred Reese Witherspoon and Patrick Dempsey. in this love comedy, Dempsey’s character surprises Reese by closing Tiffany’s and letter her choose her engagement ring. AMAZING!

so with that being said, it’s our society’s fault for luring innocent women to the expensive hands of Tiffany’s.

although i have never owned ANYTHING from Tiffany’s, the hunger still holds strong. i was head over heels excited when i came across this website that sells exact identical Tiffany’s replicas, which comes with the box and all! i thought to myself, perhaps someday i can get my own Tiffany’s, even if it’s not 100% real!

so all you men out there, now is your chance to surprise your lady for this Valentine’s day! and truly, she won’t care if it’s not real. it’s the thought that counts! (hint, hint pk!)

plus, we are in a recession!
