I really like Valentine’s Day because it’s an excuse to go out on date night and spend time with people you love. So often, we forget to carve time out for those people. Well, not forget, but we just let life get in the way. And so much time goes by between spending that quality time together. Sigh. Valentine’s Day is a way to hit pause and enjoy the people in our life. While I don’t always think the holiday needs to come with gifts, I’m excited that we’re helping to give away a Build-A-Bear Cookie Baskets, available at all Cookies by Design store locations.
Cookies by Design and Build-A-Bear Workshop have paired together to combine hand-decorated cookie bouquets with outfitted bears. The cookie bouquets are made-to-order too. A custom love note or photo can be printed on the cookies too. This is a really unique gift idea. My mom ordered a cake with my photo printed on it once. It was kind of ridiculous at the time, and maybe a little embarrassing too, but I remember that cake more than any other cake I’ve had in my life. So your recipient is sure to remember this!
Is this a gift you would give for Valentine’s Day? Is it a gift you would love to receive?
If you said yes, you’re in luck. We are helping to give away two of these baskets (one for the winner and one to gift). Plus a $150 Visa gift card. If you won, who would you give a basket to? You may have to make that decision, so start thinking!

There are lots of times when I want garlic bread. It’s delicious and goes great with pasta.
But making garlic bread takes so much longer than I ever have time for. It’s never something I think about ahead of time. It pops into my head as pasta’s boiling, leaving me a solid five minutes to make some. Which I can do.
Yup, I have created a super quick 5 Minute Garlic Bread recipe. Now you can have it on a whim too.
5 Minute Garlic Bread
What You’ll Need:
- 4 slices of Italian bread
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 teaspoons of butter
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
What You’ll Do:
Chop the garlic cloves.
Lather each piece of bread with 1/2 a teaspoon of butter.
Top with the garlic cloves and seasonings.
Bake in a toaster oven at 375 degrees for four minutes.
That’s it. You get a good crunch on the bread, and it has all the taste of a good garlic bread in just a fraction of the time. I make this a lot and we are never disappointed.
I’d say part of the trick is using a deli sliced loaf of Italian bread. It mimics the taste of a traditional Italian bread. I wouldn’t go with a sandwich bread for this because it just wouldn’t be the same.
Pair this bread with a bagged salad and pasta and you can have a great weeknight dinner on the table in under ten minutes.
What are your favorite garlic bread seasonings?

For our second Christmas together, I made Pete a cookbook of the recipes he created for Drugstore Divas. The images and instructions were in blog posts. So I figured I could just copy and paste. Oh, it was not that easy. I spent countless hours on a laptop that was just not good enough, cutting and pasting and moving. And pulling my hair out. I finished and Pete loved it (and still loves it). But I cringe a little knowing how ill-skilled I was then and how much better I could do now.
Just how much, you ask. Well, Blurb has created BookWright. It is a new blog import feature. You can turn digital content (into a beautiful book. This new feature supports Blogger, WordPress, Squarespace, and more. It pulls text and images directly into the tool, so you can craft the book.
That’s exactly what I was doing by hand so many Christmases ago. This seriously would have saved me a ton of time and would have come out better too!
Now is the time to try it. Now through February 2, all Blurb books are buy one, get one 50% off. Just enter the code BOGO50 at checkout.
