Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, and we wanted to take the opportunity to share some of our favorite recipes. Whether you’re preparing for a romantic breakfast in bed, a mid-afternoon quickie lunch, or an extravagant dinner (or all three), take these delicious recipes into consideration.
If you want to avoid sheets sticky with maple syrup, opt for these decadent Baked Red Velvet Donuts from Pumpkin ‘n’ Spice. Gayle’s recipe is simple enough for the kids to make (supervised, of course) and rich enough to send any chocolate lover into Valentine’s Day overdrive.
Shareba of In Search of Yummy-ness offers up the adorable little Fried Ravioli Hearts for the wee Valentines in your life. Kids will love these crispy ravioli, and it’s just as yummy for adults taking a midday break from canoodling.
For dinner, step up your game with Individual Shepherd’s Pies in Baked Potatoes from Christina’s Cucina. They may look complicated, but they’re actually easy to make. Added bonus: you can prepare them ahead of time so that you can focus your attention on enjoying food, not cooking it. You could pair it with a soup or salad to round out the meal, but let’s not kid ourselves. We’re going to need that extra room for a Valentine’s dessert.
Speaking of dessert, head to Dig in with Dana for her Easy Chocolate Mousse. Not only is this mousse rich and creamy and mouth-wateringly chocolate-y, it’s also gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.
And for your nightcap, indulge in Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail from The Adventure Bite. It’s as red. It’s bubbly. It’s champagne. What better way to wash down all of these fabulous dishes?
