Valentines Day

What's a couple of foodies to do for Valentines Day, but think food.
Last night Bob took me out on "a date" we went into Kennebunkport for a salad, it was a nice treat.
I made him a chocolate coconut cake . Today I made sugar cookies, for Bob and some of the folks at work. Additionally I wrapped some chocolate bars, for a couple of  girl friends.

Chocolate-Coconut Cake

Prepare and bake chocolate cake mix according to instructions on package. In a heavy saucepan, combine granulated sugar, 1 cup evaporated milk, and marshmallows; bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; then stir in flaked coconut and vanilla extract. Cool and spread between the cake layers.
