Six layers of red velvet cake? Yes, please!
The Pancake Princess: Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with someone special or you're just spending the evening by yourself, you can't go wrong by making a giant red velvet cake. Erika has a recipe for a single slice of Red Velvet layer cake, and it's vegan! Minus the Greek yogurt frosting. To make the layered cake, bake one round cake, slice into six wedges, then stack and assemble with frosting.

H-Town Chow Down: Try something different at Becks Prime and order the new banh mi sandwich. H-Town Chow Down tasted the new sandwich from The Woodlands location and enjoyed it, despite the fact that it's quite different from the original. Unlike normal banh mi sandwiches, Becks Prime's version uses the traditional Becks Prime egg bun instead of French bread, and sliced pork sirloin is used instead of the fattier pork. Becks Prime also has another new pork sandwich, the Hickory Prime Pork, which features pickles, onions and barbecue sauce.

Hank On Food: This week, Hank will be doing profiles on Valentine's Day offerings throughout Houston. In this post, he takes a look at the sweets and treats from Three Brothers Bakery. Last week, we talked about the anti-Valentine's Day desserts from the bakery, but Hank showcases the nice, lovey-dovey treats you can buy as well, such as pink, red and white iced heart-shaped sugar cookies, petit fours with messages saying, "I Love U," and giant cupcakes with pink hearts.
