Valentine’s Day Cake
Here’s a super simple idea to decorate any round layer cake in a valentine’s theme. Just make a double layer round cake and frost it with any cake / frosting combo that suits you. Then stack Kit-Kat bars around the edges, securing them with a ribbon tied in a bow. Then top the cake with Valentine M&M’s! Isn’t it just adorable? Make this Valentine’s Day extra special with this super nice cake!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

One of my favorite and fastest dinners. A copy-cat of Ruby Tuesday’s dish. Also great as a meatless dish if you omit the chicken.
1 pound chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
1/2 package penne or ziti
1 12 oz. jar Alfredo sauce with sun dried tomatoes
1 16 oz. can black beans
1 10 3/4 ounce can Rotel Tomatoes
Grill or broil chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces. Boil pasta according to pkg. directions. Drain Rotel Tomatoes and black beans – rinse beans. Combine all in a pan and warm through. Serve with garlic bread and a salad.

Experiment with different toppings for your pita pizzas.
One of my favorites is Barbeque Chicken Pita Pizzas. To make, use barbeque sauce instead of tomato sauce and top pizza with Monterey Jack cheese, shredded cooked chicken and bacon crumbles.
Hawaiian Pita Pizza:
Top pizza with tomato sauce, diced cooked ham,, pineapple tidbits and mozzarella cheese.
