Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy V DayIt’s that time of year to ask the one you love to be your Valentine. This year as funds are short, I decided to do some inexpensive and fun things to show Mac how much he means to me. Do you remember when you were a kid and you bought a box of little Valentines for all your classmates?. I decided to make some of these to put in Mac’s lunch along with his favorite cookie, Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies, to take to school today.

I have a ”Hershey’s Kiss” silicone pull-apart cupcake mold, so I am making a golden butter cake with chocolate frosting and red sprinkles and lettering for dessert.

Remember, the small things mean as much as spending a lot of money to show how much you love that special person in your life.

Baked Potato Wedges

BakedPotatoWedges14 medium-sized red potatoes, cut into wedges**
1 tbsp. Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Blend

2 tsp. Garlic salt
1 tsp. Ground black pepper
1 tbsp. Olive oil

 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine Mrs. Dash, garlic salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

Place potato wedges in a large bowl and toss in the olive oil. Then pour seasoning in the bowl with potatoes and toss until evening coated.

Roast on a baking sheet about 30 minutes, turning at 15 minutes to evenly brown potatoes.

**If you don’t have red potatoes, you can use russet potatoes – just par boil them for 15 minutes or so before baking so they are cooked through.
