Love Ya Back ~ Happy Valentine’s Day ~ 2/14/11



LOVE is a beautiful expression of life.

LOVE…at the end of the day, is all that matters.

Love is the emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. In philosophical context, love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. In some religious contexts, love is not just a virtue, but the basis for all being, as in the Christian phrase, "God is love" or Agape in the Canonical gospels. Love may also be described as actions towards others (or oneself) based on compassion. Or as actions towards others based on affection.”

As a flickr member, I compiled photo mosaics using other flickr friends' photos and my own.
The subject: Twosome; namely, any photo with ‘two’ subjects in the photos.

I want to say THANK YOU FLICKR FRIENDS for sharing your photos and being a part of this project. Love you! J

Valentine’s Day baking…I made heart-shaped pocket pies and filled them with strawberry and raspberry filling using a heart-shaped mold by Williams-Sonoma.

These heart-shaped pocket pies are fun to make and fun to eat! You can pace yourself by making the dough ahead of time and using store bought jam to fill the pocket pies. Dough recipe is on the back of the box.

Williams-Sonoma also has other molds (apple and lattice).
The dough recipe can be found in my post, here.

Just a note…make sure you place the heart opening on the right side, not the left, as I did.
Oh well, live and learn, right?


Have fun baking these sweet treats…most of all,

Have a loving Valentine’s Day!


Peace in baking,

Carmen
