Valentine’s Day Sweets

valentine's day recipes
Tomorrow is February 1st – already? Seriously, I feel like it was just yesterday that I was taking down my tree – probably because it was almost yesterday. And since we’re friends, I’ll totally admit to the fact that I still have Christmas-y decor on my front porch.

Christmas decoration slacking aside, I’m more than ready for chocolates, conversation hearts, and roses. They’re what makes Valentine’s Day worth it for me. And sure, all those things are great on their own, but what about taking it up a notch, and showing your love through homemade deliciousness?

No matter who your Valentine happens to be, the way to ANYONE’S heart is through their stomach! So, with that in mind… I present to you a round-up of my favorite Valentine’s Day sweets for your sweetie.

Do you have a favorite way to spoil your Valentine?

Hi
I salute you! I just took down my Christmas tree yesterday and put it outside only to be accosted by the fierce winds here. I love Christmas decor and a fresh, aromatic tree cannot be discarded too quickly in my opinion. Pine garlands, lights and silk poinsettia can still be found on my porch. Love your blog and your VD selections, lovely to gaze upon and eat to be sure. Your posts brighten my inbox! Had to write. Thanks!

I know I can’t believe it’s almost February! I had all my Christmas thrown in the spare room and waiting to take to my storage building and it rained, and rained and rained (I needed an Ark) so I just shut the door until the other day and low and behold I still had my Christmas on my porch too! But I can say just the other day it all made it’s way to the building!

I better get busy with my Valentine’s post! Those Sweet and Salty Brownies are looking good!
