Encouraging Hearts and Home 02.04.2021

A Day of Discovery, Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins, a Crocheted Heart Bunting, and Instant Pot Eggs En Cocotte are this week's featured posts!  

Hello and Welcome!

You may have noticed I do not offer much in the way of Valentine's Day treat posts, and there is a reason. February 14th is our wedding anniversary. So we celebrate our years together. Sometimes giving gifts and other times not. And it is all good. But in the spirit of delicious, chocolate desserts I would like to offer this easy to assemble cheesecake. 

Chocolate Cheesecake, make one for the chocolate lover in your circle!

Cheesecake is my husband's favorite dessert, right after chocolate. Which was my inspiration for this easy and delicious Chocolate Cheesecake! If you have a cheesecake lover in your circle, you might want to make them one...and Happy Anniversary to my hubby, with a wish for 100 more!

And now, it's time for this week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!

Crochet Heart Bunting.  I am a moderate knitter, but crochet projects like this one inspire me to take up the hook!

Instant Pot Eggs En Cocotte (Shirred Eggs) one of my favorites this week!

Instant Pot Eggs En Cocotte  This would also make a lovely dinner for those nights when you got home late and still need to eat!
