.Say I Love You With Food

It’s the little things. Little simple things that come from the heart. They make all the difference. No amount of money spent on a gift can replace small simple acts of love. I know, I know. It sounds so cheesy. But you and I know, it’s true. Here are a few simple ways to say ‘I Love You’ while serving up a dish for a special someone. The best part is they take little to no prep time.

{These make me smile}

French Toast HeartOne of my favorite (last minute) additions to  a plate is accomplished by simply cutting out a heart shape on a piece of paper……..
