Happy Valentine’s Day!

Cream Puff is sending you lots and lots of love and I’m doing it with Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies from Better Homes & Gardens.

On this very special Valentine’s Day edition of Magazine Mondays, my entry is from a holiday magazine I bought in the fall of 2010. I had bookmarked this recipe to give it a try over Christmas but that didn’t happen.

As I was considering recipes to try for Valentine’s Day, I remembered this one and I thought how perfect it would be! It’s a shortbread cookie tinted red and flavoured with cocoa powder. I drizzled mine in melted bittersweet chocolate for the perfect final touch.

It’s been a few weeks since my last edition of MM so I have a few entries to get through today:

Wandering Coyote of ReTorte made Quinoa & Chickpea Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette from the March 2011 issue of Canadian Living.

Carla from Recipe Addict Shrimp in Garlic Saffron Broth from an issue of Martha Stewart Living from 2000.

Jamie from Life’s a Feast made Fondants Châtaigne Ganache Chocolat (Chestnut Fondant Bundlets with Chocolate Ganache) from the February 2001 issue of the French Saveur.

Janie of Panini Girl made Porchetta from the June 2010 issue of La Cucina Italiana.
