Welcome to Week 7, the most romantic of weeks because it brings us to Valentine’s Day. Whether you think it’s an overly-commercialized and fabricated holiday, an opportunity to ask out that special someone or a time to renew your vows with the love of your life, it’s certainly a busy day for florists, bakers and restaurants. So enjoy this all-Valentine’s-Day-themed Chew on This, featuring fine dining, cupcakes and fresh ideas!
We’ll start out with desert first, because rules be damned! How about five delicious cupcake ideas for your sweetie?
