happy valentine’s

…I guess. I mean, traditionally the day was supposed to commemorate a martyred saint named Valentine, but the day only became associated with romantic love when Geoffrey Chaucer wrote about it in some thing called Parlement of Foules. And if you’ve ever read The Canterbury Tales, you know what a perv Chaucer can be. (Thanks, Wikipedia.)

Since my boyfriend lives far away, I made chocolate peppermint roll-out cookies (based on Kittee’s recipe, but with 1/2 t. peppermint extract), decorated them with peppermint icing and cacao nibs, wrapped ’em up and shipped ’em out. Hope he likes them.



  1. You are a good girlfriend!

    Also, the nibs look like roses.
