the great valentine's day bake-off

The Great Valentine’s Day Healthy Bake-Off

February 14, 2014

I’m feeling the loooooooove today! I’ve got my red pants on (sweatpants, you know I don’t wear “real” pants), the house is decked out with chocolate and cinnamon hearts and Louman is filled with cookies!

As I’ve mentioned, Valentine’s Day is my favourite day of the year! I’ll be spending it doing what I do best, making balls.

But tonight I am planning a romantic dinner with my lovahhhh. By planning I mean I have yet to think of what I’m going to make and unless I rush to the grocery store post-work, we may be eating lava cake for dinner. I’m okay with that.

the-great-vday-bakeoffMore than anything I am excited to be spending Valentine’s Day with C. While we have had V-Day dates in the past, we’ve never been together on the actual holiday.

As requested, here’s our story 🙂

Despite having gone to school together for four years, C and I only met each other on my graduation night. And because life works in the cruelest of ways, I moved to NYC the next day. Maybe not love at first sight, but certainly infatuation. After 5 days together (across a 5 month time-span) I met his parents, day 6 he was my boyfriend and day 10 I was with his family for Christmas. Despite the inconvenience of NYC-San Francisco, NYC-Montreal and Toronto-Montreal, we have found a way to make our relationship work. Finally 2.5 years later we are living in the same city. I’m excited to celebrate this milestone (without any furniture) and how fortunate I am to have found the love of my life.

Now to celebrate my love for all of you I am hosting my first ever link-up! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you may have noticed that each day this week I posted a different sweet treat to share with your Valentine, whoever they are! And even better, all of them are healthy!

Now I’m passing the torch to you. I am SO excited to see what delicious treats you came up with and who you will be sharing them with. But before I do, let’s recap this week.

On Sunday, we got the ball rolling with some Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies and I introduced you to my most prized possession, my cookie jar named Louman.

double chocolate cherry cookiesMonday was all about breakfast! You didn’t think I’d do a bake-off without including breakfast right? Of course I made my all-time favourite with a twist, Banana Fosters Cinnamon Rolls!

banana fosters cinnamon rollsWednesday I listened to your requests and shared my love to my fellow bloggers with these Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies

    That might have been of the cutest and most real “love stories” I have ever read! Ahh so happy for you that you both finally ended up not only in the same city but living together! Your story sounds like a movie, I lovee it : )
    And the whole eating chocolate cake for dinner?! Um yes please, sounds exactly how I’ll be spending my v-day with Joey except with wine + netflix 🙂
    Loved all your healthy v-day bake off recipes this week girl!

    I want to eat Lava Cakes all day! Seriously, I’m sitting here at the airport post breakfast and all I want is chocolate.
    Enjoy your Valentine – thank you for hosting!! Mine are chocolatefree and the recipe is partly stolen from you – but trust me on chufa/tigernut. It’s like crack.

    Lend a {Healthy} Hand #53+ Spread the Love Day! |
    February 14, 2014 at 7:00 am

    […] Today’s Lend a {Healthy} Hand round up will be a little different than most weeks since it is technically a ‘holiday’ and I want to address it in some way. Valentine’s Day can be a really fun day for some people and a sore spot for others. But I think that we can all learn to celebrate it in some way if we just change our mindsets about it! Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about celebrating love with a special someone…it can be about celebrating love in general! The love you share with your family, your friends, and most importantly YOURSELF! So if you find yourself feeling lonely or a little pessimistic about the day, take some time to consider how rich you are with love in other aspects of your life. So what if you don’t have a significant other at the moment? You’re pretty great on your own. And you deserve all the self-love in the world. To celebrate loving yourself, consider treating yourself in some way or doing some thing special that you know you enjoy! Maybe even make yourself a treat of some sort? I gotcha covered there! Here’s a recipe my mom always uses to make mini cheesecakes! Although I personally am not a cheesecake fan, my mom and everyone that tries these SWEARS by them! So I know they’re good! Plus they just look pretty….and we all need simple, pretty things in our day sometimes! (For some more delicious treats check out the Valentine’s Day recipe round up going on over at The Healthy Maven!) […]

We watched netflix (cause no cable yet) and drank wine out of paper cups. It will forever be one of my favorite memories. Furniture is overrated.

    As if sharing all of these tempting recipes all throughout the week hadn’t been sweet enough you chose the truly sweetest ending by sharing the story of how you and C met. You already know I’m a hopeless romantic and this was really the icing on the [Valentine’s Day] cake. Actually, my sister and her now-husband share a similar story of how they met but yours may or may not be even cute [don’t tell her I said that ;)]. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Wow, that is a great story about you and C. Long distance wins in the end. You went from so many different cities to the same apartment, sans furniture. That’s alright though because I’m pretty sure for Valentine’s Day all you need is a bed. 😉
