Easy Valentine’s Day Brownies

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays for cooking every year because I usually teach a Kid’s Valentine Cooking Class and share my recipes with children. This year I have a great class scheduled along with a few television appearances lined up in Birmingham and Nashville preparing Valentine treats. These Valentine Brownies are just one of the recipes I will be making for the kids as well as television. This easy brownie recipe was shared to me by the editors of the Tables of Content Book from the Junior League of Birmingham (one of my must-have cookbooks). These are so easy, and you make them all in one saucepan. Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter and decorate with your favorite icing. They are almost too simple to be so divine.

Bistro Chicken Pasta Salad

I have been so fortunate to have made so many new friends lately that have been so helpful with my upcoming cookbook. A few weeks ago, I met Nancy Bynon, through a publisher friend of mine (thank you Sheila), and it was truly my lucky day. Nancy was one of the Editors of theĀ “Tables of Content” cookbook for the Junior League of Birmingham. It’s an amazing cookbook-one of my all-time favorites, and many talented women of Birmingham worked hard to develop such a fabulous book. Nancy has been so wonderful to me by helping me test recipes and offering great suggestions. The night I met her, she was making a version of this recipe. It was delicious, and I told her my kids would love it. When I made it the other night, everyone was fighting over it. It is truly great and a perfect weeknight or weekend main-dish pasta salad. Thanks to all of you (you know who you are) who are have helped me out. One more month to go.
