Are you making anything special for Valentine's Day? I have three bars of cream cheese on my counter, waiting to be whipped into a scrumptious cheesecake. Since it sits overnight for best flavor, I thought I'd plan another make-ahead recipe from a library cookbook--shrimp etouffe. I've given up on eating out for Valentine's day. It's a lot less stressful just to serve a special meal at home. Later I have birthday cakes and cupcakes to bake. That perfectly working oven came just in time! The same cookbook had a recipe for blueberry muffins in which the batter, after mixing, sits in the refrigerator overnight. I'm going to try those for Friday.
Still haven't tried your hand at homemade pizza dough? Tammy of Tammy's Recipes has a free video tutorial you can download. She makes it seem so easy! Of course, she even makes her own pepperoni!
