Just in time for Valentine's Day, satisfy your sweet tooth with a delicious dessert from one of the best bakeries in the Rockford area.

I am a sucker for anything sweet no matter how full I am.  I could have no room in my stomach after a full meal and still inhale an entire cheesecake.  I've always sworn by Crust & Crumbles because it's conveniently located by my apartment!  Their Cruffins are to die for.
