I really don’t like Valentine’s Day. In fact, I hate it. And, no – nothing happened. Nothing traumatic or heartbreaking happened for me to feel this way. I can think of several other occasions to celebrate love besides a holiday concocted for it. But, I’ll tell you what. The best Valentine’s I remember is the first one I spent with Binks. Specifically, he brought me a box of chocolates, which we ate standing over the sink. I would take a bite and then give him the rest. We did this methodically with the entire box. Best. V. Day. Ever.
So, aside from the creepy flying baby in his underwear, the tolerable thing about Valentine’s is the food. The glorious decadent food. In honor of, I’ve put together a list of foods that I think would be great for any Valentine’s. Happy VD my sweet friends.
Drizzle this on – anything. Pancakes. Cheesecake. Straight into your mouth. Wonderful.
A little on the nose, but who can resist a beautiful red velvet cake? And, I promise you that this cake is irresistible.
3. Garlic Bread
This may not be on the nose and mostly on the breath but this garlic bread is completely worth it.
I love making and decorating sugar cookies for Valentine’s. It’s a creative and personal way to show someone you care.
5. Cream Puffs
Looking more difficult than it actually is to make, cream puffs are a delicious way to impress a Valentine.
Pizza is a love in our house and this Chicago style deep dish is a decadent main course for a casual meal with anyone you love.
A classic sugar cookie gets an instant glam makeover by adding your favorite sprinkles.
I dare you resist donuts at any time. Waking up to these in the morning will truly show a loved one how much you care.
All my favorite flavors and ingredients combine to make a dish that makes me swoon.
These are a favorite cookie in my house and everyone that tries them falls in love.
