Since having kids, I noticed that my food cravings have become rather moody. I swing in the afternoon, craving something sweet. Then right after, have a serious salty hankering. My husband does not appreciate my sweet & salty cravings. He thinks it’s odd. But, the kiddos are on my side. Sweet and salty rocks!

Chocolate covered strawberries are a classic treat for Valentine’s Day. Definitely classier and more sophisticated than a box of sweethearts!
