As a teen I loathed the holiday. I actually have to admit that I broke up with a guy in high school simply because Valentine's Day was approaching and I didn't want to have to buy some cheesy gift or put him through the torture of having to buy me one either.
I got married a week and a half before Valentine's Day. Superbowl Sunday weekend to be exact. My husband and I don't even celebrate Valentine's Day. In fact, half the time I forget our anniversary but that's because I'm terrible with dates. My husband really has it easy in our marriage. And now that I've reached those years past my thirtieth birthday, I've told him he can totally forget my birthday every year. I have no idea how old I am now. I quit counting after thirty. I consider it the best anti aging cream on the market.
While I may not be a Valentine's Day lover, I love those little candy hearts, red velvet cake and chocolate covered strawberries.
This red velvet cake recipe is made from scratch and includes a secret ingredient to make the cake so moist and delicious. It's amazing! `You won't even know that the secret ingredient is in there. However, if you are expecting a true red it will not be. Because this cake is a naturally dyed red velvet cake, the red color is more subtle. But don't let that scare you. You will fall in love with this amazing cake.
