Valentine's Day is around the corner! As if you didn't know. . . .
I've learned through the years something I'm sure most of you women already know. . . . The best way to my Sweetie's heart is through his tummy!
With that in mind, I thought I'd try an idea I had for Two Ingredient Cupcakes--this time using strawberries. . . . I love how fast I can make a batch, as well as the simplicity of it. . . .They turn out so moist and delicious. . . .So delicious that the minute they came out of the oven, John and Boo both suddenly appeared in the kitchen, begging for a taste.
I did give in. . . .let John have a sample. . . .not Boo. . . .He IS a cat, although he thinks he's human. . . .
John gave me a two thumbs up on the recipe. . . .Then wanted another.
Bless his heart. . . .He does love his Sweets.

I brought out the Rose Transferware for a Valentine's Day vignette featuring the Strawberry Cupcakes. . . .Alas, I have very few pieces of it. . . .I'm constantly on the lookout for more that is within my budget, but they're few and far between. . . . .
What you see here is the extent of the collection.
I'm a little confused as to what to call the transferware. . . .I've seen these dishes referred to as Pink and as Red and as Rose. . . .Which is it? I chose Rose because that's my best friend's name. . . .but, I'd like to know which is correct. Maybe you could enlighten me?
Will there be more Rose Transferware in my future? I hope so!. . . .If nothing else, it gives me an excuse for junkin'. . . .as if I needed one. . .
For now, I'm just hoping the Strawberry Cupcakes will earn me a Valentine's Day dinner out. . . .but, as fast as they're disappearing, I may have to make another batch for the big day. . . .just as a reminder. . . .
. . .sending Love from my farmhouse to yours. . .
