With Valentine's Day coming up, I'm bringing you 25 sweet treats and indulgent entrees to celebrate the most romantic day of the year!
Valentine's Day is one of my favourite holidays.❤ Yes, I know, it's kinda a lame day manufactured by marketers to sell a bunch of stuff, but I've come to see it as a fun excuse to get together with all the people you love in life.
No significant other? No problem! I'll be celebrating Galentine's with my girlfriends this Saturday by hosting a fancy dinner and dance party. Half the fun is getting dressed up, decorating with a whole bunch of red and pink metallic hearts and balloons, and eating out-of-this-world delicious food.
So, without further ado, get your virtual feast on with these Valentine's Day-themed recipes. And yes, you'll find more than just chocolate and cookies here: I've also included a few ideas for your signature cocktail and fancy, elevated entrees for two thanks to some of my fave food blogger friends.
