Project Love

Love begins in the kitchen, and one of the most fulfilling simple ways to show your love is creating something delicious for that special person! Everything is more meaningful and appreciated when you make it instead of buying it. Here are some good recipes, from my own family recipe collection and from my favorite food blog: Cannelle-Vanille. Now I let you go to the kitchen and start the love project and like Tim Gun would say: make it work! Ps. Don"t forget to wear your red heels!!
