Chocolate-Frosted Cupcakes Recipe

Chocolate-Frosted Cupcakes

This year, with little Aria attending preschool, the ideas about love have drastically changed and are far from the stuff of romantic comedies. I was talking about it with a girlfriend who has toddlers too. She was telling me that after having a 3-year-old and 4 month old, her husband agreed to get a toaster oven and she would get a vacuum for their Valentine's Day gifts. And now our preparations for Valentine's Day consist of DIY kids' arts and crafts and a lot of baking for Aria's friends. I prepared chocolate-frosted sweet treats this morning.

These are just the right size for little fingers to enjoy, but you can of course make them bigger if they're for your own Valentine's celebration. The chocolate isn't cloyingly sweet, which means you can enjoy more than one!

Homemade Guava Jelly Recipe

"Chose promise, chose due!", I'm keeping my promise! And here is the recipe for guava jelly. Fully ripened guavas are highly perishable, so be sure to either eat them as is or cook them right away. 

The concept is simple and easy to remember: for every cup of guava juice count 1 cup of sugar and the juice of half a lime. Once canned and rested, you'll have the tropical flavor of India captured in your sealed jars. You'll also be pleasantly surprised by the natural, sweet, most invigorating fragrance in your home! Then you know what to do: slather the beautiful jelly on your favorite bread and enjoy!
