Bridging You To The Outside World

Back to February: Valentine’s Day! (Cheat Day)

Of course, when Valentine’s Day is mentioned, we think of love, flowers and maybe the gifts, even for all those single pringles out there in the world, but I can assure you that most of us mainly care about the chocolates and food. Here are two of my own recipes to spice up your Valentine’s Day (literally!) .
