Whether you’re in the mood for a quick treat or you’re looking for something easy and special to make for Valentine’s Day, this flourless chocolate mug cake should do the trick.

After taking a month hiatus from baking desserts, this weekend I went a little crazy. I baked dozens of cookies, fried beignets, and microwaved half a dozen versions of flourless chocolate mug cakes. It was fun to have the house smelling like chocolate again, but now I have way too many sweets lying around, making it far too easy to grab a cookie whenever I pass by the kitchen. I really need better self control.

As I was making these cakes, I realized we didn’t have any fresh berries to eat them with. So I asked Mr. K if he could do a quick run to the nearby market to buy me a carton of eggs and a pack of strawberries, specifying to get pretty ones since I’d also be using them for these photos. To my surprise, he was gone nearly an hour.

I am so excited about the Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Caesar Dressing! It allows me to easily make a Kale Caesar Salad without having to make the Caesar dressing from scratch.

This was such a hit in our house that we’ve already had it three times in one week! It’s usually hard to get Mr. K to eat his vegetables, but he polished off a big bowl at lunch and requested more so I made it for lunch and dinner again.

Leafy kale greens, crunchy croutons, creamy Caesar and a sprinkle of Parmesan are all you need.

Taegukgi Korean BBQ House is located next to Zion Market. We visited back when it first opened, but haven’t had a chance to return again until recently.

While we haven’t dined here in a while, we have been observing all the changes they made to the restaurant since their initial opening. They’ve added an outdoor cafe that serves simple Korean dishes and desserts, more menu items, and their impossible to miss signage (at night the white LED lights keep running down it, giving it almost a club-like feel).

We were in the mood for All You Can Eat BBQ and decided to have dinner here with friends. Despite arriving for an early dinner, the place was already quite full. They told us the wait would be about 45 minutes, but luckily it only ended up being about 20 minutes.

When we arrived at our table, all the complimentary banchan dishes were already on the table, along with drinking water and dipping sauces.

It was a little hard to take pictures of all the individual dishes since they were situated around the grill. I took a couple of quick photos to give you an idea. There were 10 dishes if you include the salad.
