It’s February and Valentine’s Day, the month of love. So for the Biscuit Barrel this month, the theme is:

Loved Ones

Tell me about the special treats you’ve laboured to create for dear ones, or cherished recipes that have been passed down to you from beloved relatives and friends. Or, if you’re really lucky and have a spouse/friend/parent who knows that food gifts are always the best, share the way you’ve put their gift to good use in your kitchen!

Any item, sweet or savoury, that can fit into a biscuit container qualifies for the challenge, so think creatively!
