Valentine’s Treats

I’ve been spending a lot of time in my kitchen lately. I’ve really hit my groove with cooking and baking. It’s a lot of fun. I entertained a man friend on Valentine’s Day so I made a cute meal for us. I then photographed the leftovers the next day when it was light out.

Dinner: Herb Stuffed Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Satueed Asparagus and Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppyseed Dressing.

Herb Stuffed Chicken

For the chicken I kind of morphed two recipes. I used the ingredients from the recipe linked but I used thin sliced chicken breasts and rolled it up then just baked them for 40 minutes.

The salad obviously uses spinach instead of romaine. And the dressing I made with 1/4 cup of honey instead of sugar.

Dessert: Chocolate Mousse!

Healthy Chocolate Mousse

This was absolutely delicious considering how healthy it was. And the little chocolate bowls I made were pretty simple, they just took one practice run. I melted chocolate chips, and then lined the inside of silicone cupcake molds with chocolate, put them in the freezer for a minute and then I repeated to make sure the walls were thick enough.This stuff doesn’t keep, but it’s relatively light so eat up! I went to eat it the next day and I guess the coconut milk lost it’s creamy texture or something because it was liquid.
