Love is in the air: Valentine’s Day is right around the corner which means millions of people will spend countless dollars on chocolates, flowers, and cards to show that special person how much they are loved. Personally, I’d rather my guy treat me to an experience in which we can share together and recall the memories for years to come; material things pale in comparison.
One way to show your love and appreciation for your loved one is to prepare dinner for the two of you to enjoy together. Set the mood by dimming the lights. Getting physical in the kitchen can ignite the slow burn later that night, if you know what I mean. Consider serving your lover this easy salmon entree. Or if red meat is more your speed, this rib-eye steak recipe will satisfy completely. After the main course, serve these cookies up warm, fresh out of the oven. Then get on with the intimate festivities planned the rest of the night – satisfaction guaranteed!
These cookies are a dream come true for someone looking for a sweet, soft, chewy, decadent treat without dairy, grain, and soy. If you have food intolerances or health reasons to avoid dairy, gluten and soy, make sure to choose a chocolate chip brand that does not contain these common allergens. Enjoy Life chocolate chips are dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free. Score!
Bonus: cooking video!! Because sometimes we prefer videos over words…
