TIP OF THE DAY: Last Minute Valentine Treats

There’s still time to make something special for Valentine’s Day, even if you’re a non-cook. Here are two sure-to-please ideas.

Start with breakfast: Make strawberry or raspberry cream cheese for the morning toast’s or bagels. You can also use it for tea sandwiches.



  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup berries, hulled; or substitute 2 tablespoons
    strawberry or raspberry preserves and
    omit the confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • Optional:1 tablespoon orange zest

    1. COMBINE ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until smooth and well blended.

    2. REFRIGERATE until needed. Ideally make the day before to let flavors blend.

    Some people would trade all the chocolate in the world for a good beer.

    It you know such a person, take a look at the style of beer in the fridge—Belgian ale, IPA, lager, pilsner, etc. (here are the different types of beer).

    Then, head to the market with the largest supply of craft beer and pick up four different brands in the same style.

    If you want to make it a beer-and-cheese pairing, here are the cheeses that go with beer.

    Toast to a happy Valentine’s Day.
