Back in the kitchen, we made up two lists of conversation heart cookies: traditional and cynical. The cynical side was filled in no time. Not Ever.; Really?; Dislike.; and simply...No.
The traditional side took some thinking. Be that as it may, we are all suckers for a good dessert. Sweetheart cherry pie, a luscious chocolate cake, a truckload of heart cookies. Whether you say Be Mine or Meh, say it from scratch, with butter.
