Valentine's Day Menu Idea | Fireside Beef Bourguignon & Smores with Homemade Heart Marshmallows

Fireside Beef Bourguignon & S'mores
with Homemade Heart Marshmallows

We got engaged two (short!) years ago on a ski vacation in Aspen.  It was such a romantic vacation - we had cozy little dinners at bistros in the village, spent the days skiing and even a real horse drawn sleigh-ride through the woods on the back side of Aspen Mountain.

One of my favorite parts of the trip was our fireside lunch at Cloud 9 Bistro.  It is a tiny ski-in little cabin halfway down Aspen Highlands Mountain with only a couple of tables and a roaring fire.  Can you imagine anything better than skiing into a rustic cabin and enjoying steaming hot chocolate and French stew in front of a roaring fire?  I'm getting warm fuzzies just thinking about it...  Here is a link to the post about our entire trip to Aspen.  Warning : pre-quality camera photos.

This menu of Beef Bourguignon & S'mores reminds me of that little lunch at Cloud 9 - except it is better because you can enjoy this dinner from the comfort of your own fireplace.  The best part about this menu is that you only have to make two things - the stew and marshmallows.  And really, you don't even have to make the marshmallows - so many bakeries are making them now, or you can rely on the ole' bag from the grocery store.  Either way they will be delicious.

Here is the recipe link to my Beef Bourguignon Recipe & the Homemade Marshmallows.

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a
    theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    However think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts
    more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
    this website could undeniably be one of the best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps
    everybody else experiencing problems with your blog.
    It appears like some of the written text in your content
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and
    let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen before. Many thanks

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks

    Hello, Neat post. There's an issue with your website in internet explorer, would check this? IE still is the market leader and a large portion of people will leave out your great writing because of this problem.

    I believe everything published made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a title that grabbed people's attention?
    I mean "Valentine's Day Menu Idea | Fireside Beef Bourguignon & Smores with Homemade Heart Marshmallows" is kinda plain.
    You might glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything've written.

    Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the
    message home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    A great read. I'll definitely be back.
