Happy Valentine's Day!

Pizza After

Isn't that pizza cute? I love it because it shows that everyone can do those adorable food tricks without spending years practicing - or a ton of money. As you cook, think about the shape of the final dish. Can you change it up for a holiday or just to be cute?

Bread is a particularly good canvas for this sort of play since you can squish it into whatever odd shape you need today:
Hearts for Valentine's Day, Christmas trees, baby ducks for...uh, the heck of it. (This bread pudding doesn't quite fit, but I love it so you get a link.)

The pizza was made by
Heather Andrews, who writes about an uncategorizable variety of interesting and amusing things at bookish and is a delight on twitter. I love the artisan look; you can tell a human made it for you. I like that in food, don't you?

We hope you're spending Valentine's Day with people you love. What are you baking to celebrate?

The pizza looks not only cute but, delicious also! French Silk Pie here; it has that chocolate thing going!
