This week, I am so excited to share with you all a collaboration I have done with another local Phoenix food blogger, Jillian from Simple, Sassy, and Scrumptious.

We came together to highlight a favorite recipe from each other of our collections that are simple to prepare but have the WOW factor.

What better time to release this collaboration than for Valentine’s Day?

In less than 30 minutes, both recipes are ready. Yes, you heard me right 30 minutes! Let’s start with Jillian sinful Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart.

Jillian’s contribution to this post is simply outstanding, sinful, and divine.

Jillian use of sea salt and caramel adds that indulgent flavor combination to the tart. Chilled chocolate ganache is drizzled with caramel and flaked sea salt.

The ultimate salty-sweet combination!

My contribution is fantastic, flavorful Prawns Cocktails with Kiwi.

The flavors of this cocktail are so crisp and refreshing. The kiwi in this salad lends a sweetness against the spice of the tabasco.

Plus, hello, there is Gin in this beautiful concoction!

Jillian and I had so much fun talking, cooking, and eating, a great way to spend the afternoon with a friend.

We both know you will fall in LOVE with both of these recipes!

We are confident that you will enjoy both recipes.

Happy Valentine’s Day.
