Two Bite Tuesday ~ From My Heart :-)

Love is in the air and Valentine's Day is just around the corner so I thought I'd share a couple of sweet culinary finds that will make a romantic dinner even more special. I love creating show stopping presentations that make my guests feel special and these two sweet finds will make it really easy.

1st Bite ~ Wilton's heart shaped springform cheesecake pan will make it easy to say I love you when you present a beautiful and delicious Cheesecake Heart.

This red velvet cheesecake looks absolutely delicious, so I might try it, but I'm also thinking that my version of Crab Catcher's incredible Paradise Pie will be perfect.

My next bite was a toss up so I just decided to show both. There really isn't any good reason to hold back, right? Besides, what if you're more of a pie person than a cheesecake lover?

2nd Bite ~ William Sonoma's Heart Shaped Pocket Pie Molds

Make's Perfect little Pie Pockets
Our 4th of July Star Shaped Cherry Pocket Pies were the hit of the Red, White, & Blue dessert bar...and they were not only adorable, they were delicious and just the right size with a couple of mini scoops of vanilla bean ice cream.

When dessert isn't the only thing on the menu you can add a little something unexpected using this next bite. I found this a couple of years ago and it is still in the box, so I thought I would share it in this little bonus bite today.

Bonus Bite ~ The Stack Kit: The Art of Verticle Food

For making ordinary, extraordinary
Complete with recipes
Do you ever wonder how in high end restaurants they get the dishes to come out perfectly stacked in a fun or funky shape? I used to...and found these. Creating one course in your meal, whether it be the salad, an entree, or dessert adds interest.  Even a layered rice dish becomes a conversation piece. I've always thought that food should be beautiful, as well as healthy and delicious...oh yes, and easy. I know that last one can get a bit dicey, but that's how I roll anyway. You won't see anything complicated coming out of this blog :-) Have a great evening! ~Blessings, Janet
