Don’t you hate when you find a recipe online, but the page is covered in ads and has a lengthy origin of the recipe? I won’t do that to you! However, I will tell you that I got this recipe from my grandma. So, shoutout to Gram! She made it for us on Easter, and sent me home with some leftovers that I eat as soon as I got home. Making any kind of lasagna takes some time and a Little commitment, but I promise it’s worth it!

I hope after reading the instructions you aren’t intimidated and can say to yourself, “Okay, okay this is something I can do!” You can serve it right out of the oven, or make it ahead, and freeze it. It’s a great recipe for Meatless Monday, or if you have to feed half a dozen people. Let me know how yours turned out in the comments! Share your pictures with me on Twitter, or on Instagram!
Who doesn’t love a cocktail that feels fancy, but it easy to make? If you and your valentine are spending the 14th doing a fun night in, I’ve got just the cocktail recipe for you. It’s only 5 ingredients and delicious. I picked this recipe, not only because it’s refreshing, but because one of the ingredients is strawberries. Since it’s Valentine’s Day there’s a good chance you’re also buying strawberries for chocolate cover strawberries.
Strawberry Tequila Soda
The pink color of this drink is very ~on brand~ for Valentine’s Day. This drink calls for muddling strawberries. If you don’t have a muddler, you can use a spoon or a fork. If you don’t want pieces of strawberries in your drink, but still want the flavor you can always strain them out. Serve with a straw, or sip through the sugar sprinkles on the rim.
Makes 2 cocktails
