"Red Velvet Cake. It’s one of those recipes that all Southern bakers keep in a safe spot in their recipe box. The recipe has probably been handed down through the family for years. Like homemade biscuits, Southern bakers are just expected to have a knock-down, drag-out, delicious Red Velvet Cake. So what exactly is southern red velvet cake? Well, for starters, it’s not chocolate (despite the fact that cocoa is a key ingredient). But it’s also not vanilla. It’s so unique that it deserves it’s own name!"

"When it comes to chocolate cookies, I have a hard time veering away from my tried and true base recipe. It’s rich, adaptable, and seriously easy. You don’t even need to grease your baking sheets! To jazz these double chocolate cookies up even more for Valentine’s Day, I shaped a few cookies themselves as hearts, sans cookie cutter. Once the cookies are scooped and on the baking sheet, I flattened them slightly and then pressed a toothpick into one side to create the indent at the top of the heart. Then I rounded the tops and formed a “V” shape at the bottom. Ta-da! Extra special festiveness in a few extra steps."

"After outlining two hearts on parchment paper, be sure to flip the paper over so that your meringue is not being piped onto either lead from a pencil or ink from a pen. The meringue hearts must cool completely before filling or the filling will melt. Mascarpone cheese does a great job helping to stabilize the whipped cream. Lemon zest and confectioner's sugar add wonderful flavor to the filling. After spooning it into the cooled shells, I topped each heart with red raspberries. Drizzling seedless red raspberry jam over the berries insures a gorgeous shine. All that's left to do is treasure your romantic evening with your special someone and Raspberry Meringue Hearts."
