How to Make Chocolate Lava Cake

This Valentine's Day, win your sweetheart's heart
with this heart-shaped, made-from-scratch, lick-your-plate delicious chocolate lava cake

Yes. This chocolate cake is as heavenly as it looks. Or maybe not... It's even better!
No picture or word can quite describe the sweet aroma that will drift out of your oven and embrace your kitchen; the sensation of the warm first bite when it hits your tastebuds and melts in your mouth; and the soft, most dangerous chocolate that oozes out from the middle. You will want to dig right in, and not stop until you lick the last drop of chocolate off your plate and fingers. 
Yes. It's THAT good :)

Mushroom, Potato and Fontina Quiche

How about a slice of this scrumptious vegetarian quiche to warm you up on a chilly winter day?!?
There's nothing like a hearty and filling vegetarian quiche to brighten up your weekend brunch. But who said that ONLY Sundays are for brunch?! I say every day should be a brunch day when it tastes this good and it's so easy to make.
This quiche has it all. The crispy golden, rosemary-infused potatoes on top. The flaky puff pastry on the sides and bottom. And the savory filling bursting with soft eggs, fontina cheese and sauteed mushrooms.
This quiche is cozy and comforting. Perfect for lazy and chilly winter days.

Have you reflected on the ups and downs of 2017 and made any resolutions for the New Year?!
One of my goals for 2018 is to focus more on kindness and random acts of "cooking". Like baking extra batches of cookies for neighbors and friends ... or total strangers. Just because!
I'm thinking about hosting more casual last-minute get togethers, without wasting time on formal invitations or five-course meal preparations. All that's needed is a delicious and quick meal, an awesome bottle of wine, and some fun company.
I guess I'm ready for someone to join me now to enjoy these scrumptious bruschette and amazing glass of Cavit Cabernet Sauvignon!
