Box it up...

To many busy parents, Valentine’s Day is just another day. There’s no time for a special reservation for you and your husband at your favorite restaurant. In fact, you’re lucky if you even have dinner between basketball practices and ballet classes. You’re more inclined to celebrate by going to sleep as soon as the extra-curricular activities end, than a decadent and romantic night on the town.

Every couple (no matter how busy) still needs a little romance, even if it’s dessert in a box…and I mean that in the classiest of ways. Tart, my favorite bakery in Dallas, offers Valentines “Desserts in a Box,” and let me tell you, they won’t disappoint if they’re anything like the rest of their dessert repertoire. In fact, I discovered these treats-for-two last Friday as I was picking up literally the best carrot cake I’ve ever had (and I’m usually not a fan of carrot cake). All the components of a fabulous and delightful dessert are included – all you have to do is take it out of the box (a must for ambiance), arrange on a plate, and share with your Valentine.

Even if it’s midnight before the two of you are alone in a quiet house, there’s nothing better than sharing sweets (like sinfully "Sweet Raviloi") with your sweetheart on the day made for lovers (of desserts that is!). The orders are pouring in, so get yours in on the double!
