We have the opportunity on the daily to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Whether one goes through their day searching for good deeds to be done,
or simply takes advantage of random opportunities to spread love,
every action (or inaction) has a resounding impact.
The question is: Is your impact today going to be positive, negative, or indifferent?
I have been told that one person can't make a difference.
I affectionately call these people "dummies"...
Those who actively try to hold the rest of us down,
those who would rather watch you drown than help you soar, those who can't grasp the power of positivity to create change.
Whether it's a great recipe found, or an uplifting story to share, you can be sure to find it here.
Let's start a Positivity Revolution, and drown out the dumb!

Valentine's Day in Pictures

My Valentine's Day was just perfect...I got to spend the entire afternoon in the kitchen, prepping our dinner of Cheese Fondue, Filet Mignon, and Blueberry Bread Pudding, plus other tidbits. I took pictures of nearly everything!! Here was my day and night...
Afternoon Surprise from my Love!

Homemade French Bread, getting ready for second rising

White Cheddar Mashers
 (I used my new KitchenAid hand Mixer,
these were beautiful and creamy!) 

All my ingredients for Bacon-Wrapped Filets

For cheese fondue, I've found that flouring the shredded cheese helps it to melt smoothly. I simmered some Reisling on the stovetop, and added to it dried mustard, garlic, Worcestershire, and pepper, then added in the cheese. We transferred it to our fondue pot and used French Bread, green apples, and baby carrots as dippers!

Filet Mignon cooked medium rare, Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus, White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes, and Giant Cocktail Shrimp with spicy sauce...perfect V-Day dinner!

Blueberries are my boyfriend's favorite, so I made him these Blueberry Bread Puddings in a muffin tin, adding some lemon custard on top before they were served.
Obviously, my Valentine's Day revolved around our favorite foods...Is there anyone else who had a similar experience, or are we the only ones who stayed in and stuffed our faces?
