This weekend we will be celebrating with our sweethearts…and for me, my favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is the variety of delicious treats that are available from local bakeries and confectioneries. Artisan chocolates, creative cupcakes, gooey brownies and cookies and hand made candies! If you are still in need of a gift for your Valentine, it is not too late. I have provided a delicious gift guide that will make your mouth water.
