10 Recipes for Valentine’s Day

On Wednesday, I put aside my disgust with Valentine-themed recipes. Today, I continue that brave step forward. It’s not that I have let go of my hatred of the holiday. I assure you that I hate the holiday just as much as I ever have. However, I do love red fruits, so if cherries and strawberries count as a Valentine’s Day breakfast, then Happy Valentine’s Day to me. ?

How did I pick these recipes? Simple: I looked for ones that reminded me of chocolate-covered strawberries. ? That’s valid, right?

    You have to have chocolate and strawberries on Valentine’s Day, of course! But you don’t necessarily have to have a date, because who would want to share all this delicious food?

    • Kelsey says:

      What about dates of the medjool variety though? Those would pair great with these recipes!

    • Sandra says:

      I agree 100% with Cassie!!! The best part of being single is that you don’t have to feel obligated to share your food. Especially deliciously creative oatmeal creations. My only exception is my fabulous mother who does everything she can to make sure my self-esteem doesn’t hit rock bottom on Valentine’s Day.
