Last night the hubby and I finally got around to the sweet dessert surprise that he planned for me for Valentine's Day but which I was too full to enjoy: chocolate dipped strawberry fondue fun. A blast from the past: for our six month anniversary (I know dorky), the hubby surprised me with a date to the Melting Pot. I absolutely loved it! Ever since, I have loved fondue. Well, I really liked the appetizer and the dessert. I am not so much of a fan of the main course--I just do not like having to cook my own food--and when it comes to cooking raw food I get overly cautious.
For this Valentine's Day I was mentioning how I really love chocolate covered strawberries. I think since they are "fruit"--it does not make you feel so guilty about indulging in them. Plus, they taste absolutely fantastic. Well- after having dinner the hubby surprised me with having bought a chocolate dipping pot, chocolate to melt and strawberries so not only could I enjoy some fondue fun but I could also have some chocolate covered strawberries. It was so sweet! But I got so full after eating the cake balls, that we decided to wait till the next night to enjoy it-- a Valentine's Day part two kinda thing. It was super fun!
For the past week, the hubby has been enjoying these Cheese Muffins based on a recipe that I found on Pinterest. The texture of the muffin turned out to be awesome- it was a hybrid between a muffin and a biscuit. And the cheesiness of the muffins just melted in your mouth and kept the muffins extremely moist. The hubby and I really enjoyed it! Plus, it is so savory that I bet you could enjoy this as a side for dinner and not only for breakfast. I cannot lie, I may have enjoyed these muffins for lunch!
