‘Free From’ Desserts for Valentine’s Day & #FreeFromFridays

Hi lovely people!

I have been a bit quiet over the past couple of weeks because I was hacked (yes, again!) despite top-notch security on the blog. If you are a blogger, make sure you tighten the security on your site,  change your password to something impossible to crack (mixture of numbers, lower case letters, symbols and upper case letters, not spelling something) and set up automatic backups of your site.

Enough of the boring geeky talk, let’s have a bit of a romantic theme this week. After reading all the posts from last week, three stood out. They were full of love, colour and even better: they were sweet treats!

Picture this: a decadent dessert that is rich, creamy, full of flavours and topped with a crunchy caramel, add some berries and you have Kate’s White Chocolate & Raspberry Crème Brûlée.

Now check out these gorgeous Chocolate Strawberry Heart Kebabs by Nova at ‘Cherished by me.’ Don’t they look scrumptious? Chocolate covered strawberries just scream “Valentine’s Day!” and these kebabs look so cute. I will definitely be doing that with the little ones next week!

Egg-free Chocolate Muffins, you say? Oh yes, and they also happen to be in a heart-shaped muffin case. How cute are these? Check out Corina’s recipe here.

      Me too! They’re cute, aren’t they? We’re definitely making them with the kiddos. Off to buy strawberries later with the girls.

    So sorry to hear you got hacked! That must be awful – like having your house burgled. Is it all fixed now? Hope so. Hope it hasn’t put you back too much! Linking up my Curried Shepherd’s Pie with Sweet Potato Mash this week, which is free from most of the common allergens, but packed full of spices!! 🙂 Eb x

      It’s all fixed now but I have wasted a ridiculous amount of time and there is still work to done on the site to reduce the risk of it happening again. It’s such a pain!

      I know, so quick and simple. Nova is a genius!

    Glad you got it sorted. It’s so horrible when this happens.

      It’s a real pain in the neck. So little time, so many things to do 🙁

    You’ve had a horrid week but you are very resilient…I’m in awe. I’d be in a dark hole sobbing. Hope next week is better xx

      Ha ha, no sobbing here, but I lost my blogging mojo along the way though…

      I’ve sent Hubby to the shops to buy some strawberries. Let’s hope he doesn’t ignore the list!

      My pleasure!

    I’m pretty sure that I shouldn’t make the chocolate-dipped strawberries, just because I’d take a spoon to the rest of the dip in secret! Maybe I can get my kids to make them for me….

    • Mel

      Get the kids to work. They’ll lick the bowl too so you don’t have to 🙂

      The top post’s name had been changed to “Hacked my Imam!” Original…

    I’m so sorry you got hacked again! 🙁

    Loving the valentines ideas, especially the strawberry kebabs, such a cute idea! x

      Oh well, it’s just a bit of time wasted, but hey. Those kebabs are really cute, aren’t they? x
