There is definitely a huge connection between food and love, and Valentine’s Day and chocolate. I love photographing food, but I am by no means good at cooking. I’m a photographer, I rely on chefs and food stylists, and have a husband who is really great at cooking and baking. I have a huge appreciation for the culinary arts. I do have some fun baking though and so this morning I made yummy chocolate cupcakes for my family for Valentine’s Day to show them how much I love them. Happy Valentine’s Day.
Thanks again to my good friend Betty for her cupcake recipe. Thanks Betty!
