Happy Valentine’s Day!

Whether you’re single or attached, Valentine’s Day is about sharing the love. While this year I happen to have a special valentine, I have spent many of the made up holiday Valentine’s Days single and loving it.

If you’re rolling solo, make it a day to pamper yourself! Get a massage. Rent a movie and order your favorite take out. Drink an entire bottle of wine because you can. Or round up some of your other single friends and grab some drinks. Clink your glasses to your freedom, to your innocent flirting, and relish in not having to buy anyone a gift (price gouging on V-Day is a crime!)

And, if you aren’t single, enjoy spending the day doing all the things that you and your special someone love. Whether it be cheesy, low key, or extravagant- milk it. Spread the love.

I am not about going out and spending hundreds of dollars on a Valentine’s Day dinner. We plan on celebrating Valentine’s Day over the weekend. Its not only less crowded, its also tons cheaper.


I decided to surprise my dear with some super simple and easy to make cinnamon roll croissants. Using Pillsbury Crescent dough, cinnamon and sugar, I effortlessly put together something delicous to surprise my beau with for breakfast.


Ingredients: Makes 8

1 can of crescent dough, unrolled and cut into triangles

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1/2 T sugar

1 tsp brown sugar

For the Glaze: 2 T confectioners sugar + 1 tsp half and half


Directions: Preheat oven to 375* (or whatever the package suggests). Combine the cinnamon, sugar and brown sugar and sprinkle evenly onto 8 triangles. IMG_0278

Roll up the way you would a regular crescent. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and curve into a slight “C” shape.


Bake according to package or 12-16 minutes.


Remove when they are golden brown.

Allow the croissants to cool slightly while preparing the glaze. Whisk the half and half with the confectioner sugar until smooth and then drizzle over the croissants.


Serve with strong coffee and big kisses.
