Good morning and a very happy Monday to you! How was your weekend? I know that many of you received a lot of snow this weekend. I do not want to rub it in, but not only did we not get snow it was 75 and sunny, it felt like a mild summer day. We actually sat outside for most of the day Sunday in the sun and read. We loved it and so did the pups.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, do you have big plans? On Valentine’s Day, twelve years ago, after 10 years together my husband proposed. Funnily enough Valentine’s day is not a big deal in our house; we typically stay in, cook something interesting, I always bake something, we share a bottle of champagne, exchange cards, sometimes gifts and that is it. What about you?

If you feel like making a treat for Valentine’s day, I made this scrumptious raspberry crumb cake last week and it would be a very easy and delicious breakfast to share with your loved ones on Valentine’s day. The great part is that you make everything, the batter and the crumb topping in the same bowl. It cannot be any easier than one bowl and one pan.
