Mini Chocolate Raspberry Tarts

This year might be the first year since I was eight years old that I’m excited for Valentine’s Day. I’m generally not a huge commercialized holiday celebrator; I think every day should be Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc. But seeing as this year I have someone to celebrate with, I’m about as excited […] The post Mini Chocolate Raspberry Tarts appeared first on Katys Kitchen ....more

Chocolate Peppermint Puppy Chow

Being a military kid, I grew up in a number of places. I’m Canadian and have spent most of my life in Canada, though as a kid I was extremely fortunate to live in Hawaii for four years. Since I was only seven when we moved there, it wasn’t the warm climate, salty air, or […] The post Chocolate Peppermint Puppy Chow appeared first on Katys Kitchen ....more
