Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Valentine's Desserts

Every year I host a Valentine's Luncheon for friends
Six is the perfect number
and it's fun to think of new menus
each year
But mostly, it's fun to think of new desserts!

It's also fun to go back and see what you've done
in year's past . . . and with a blog, it makes it easier!

Valentine's Desserts through the years . . .


French Silk Pie


Strawberry Cake baked in a heart shaped mold


Chocolate Cloud


White Chocolate Cake with Orange Curd 

And the dessert for 2013? 

Chocolate, of course!

And warm chocolate at that --

the cake that is often known as

Chocolate Melting Cake

A warm, individual, oozy gooey chocolate cake
Topped with whipped cream
and a pansy!

Who doesn't love chocolate
especially on Valentine's!!!

It's Friday and I'm joining Michael at Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday -- what better food than Valentine's Desserts!

I suppose these desserts have been made for the lunch bunch - lucky gals.
I have heart shaped cake pans and never pulled them out of the cupboard this year. I did make Bernideen's fudge though.
Happy Valentine's Day.
