I'm making bailey's cheesecake brownies for a girlfriend of mine (and me!). lol She's coming over with her little one tonight and we're making a fancy dinner, have wine, and watch movies because both of our husbands are gone right now.

I didn't cook anything special for V-Day, but I don't think it has to be V-Day to have any of those scrumptious sweets. YUMMY! lol :)
