Valentine’s Day Recipes

The day of LOVE is this weekend. Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? Does anyone have big plans?

I hate going out to eat on Valentine’s Day. The restaurants are so crowded and usually overpriced. We are looking forward to a relaxing  dinner at home this year.  If you are cooking in, like us, and still need recipe ideas-today is your lucky day. We are sharing some of our favorite recipes for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is on Sunday-so sleep in and enjoy breakfast in bed or a nice brunch.

If you need dinner ideas, here are a few recipes that you can impress your sweetheart with.

If you are looking for something sweet you are in the right place. Dessert is a must on Valentine’s Day. Go ahead and indulge!

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Oh, and I have gotten several questions about my TV segment on Good Things Utah-thanks for your support. I had a fun time cooking with Traci, from Healthy Deals N Steals. We made a healthy/family friendly Valentine’s Day meal. I posted the link on our media page. Check it out!

  1. ah! What a fun post ๐Ÿ™‚ We are cooking dinner together Saturday night and then may go out to either brunch or frozen yogurt on Sunday!! Today is Josh’s birthday so I am on the run trying to get things ready for that. GREAT recipes. I so want to try the veggie rolls with the peanut dipping sauce- mmm. Going to check out your segment now- cannot wait! You looked just beautiful (as always)

  2. Had to come back- the segment was awesome! Your salad is so colorful and I love the ice cream sandwiches! The perfect Valentine’s Day treat. I giggled when she asked you about your kids liking the food ๐Ÿ˜‰ I feel like I get that all the time now…I’m like uh not yet!

  3. It’s really better to spend Valentine’s at home where the quality of the food is so much better. Thanks for wonderful list.

  4. Girl, you do so well in your segments!! You are such a sweetheart. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a fabuluos Valentines Day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Love that you posted these ideas. I think we will do the oven berry pancakes. They are just like the baby germans so I’m sure the hubby will love them. I’m excited to have the zest in it. Sounds wonderful!

  6. Thanks Maria! I had a really fun time doing GTU with you. You did amazing! Thanks for sharing your recipes. We’ll have to team up again! You are great! Keep up all the great work and keep the good recipes coming.
    Your friend, Traci

  7. Found your blog from a friends blog today and I’m in love! absolutely GREAT recipes that I can’t wait to try. ๐Ÿ™‚



    Hungry in Texas ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Happy Valentine’s Day! If only I could get my boyfriend to eat those berry scones! They sound so wonderful! I’ll be making heart-shaped French toast for breakfast. (And I’m keeping dinner and dessert a secret for now.) ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. You’ve compiled an awesome selection of recipes here! I will in fact be going out on V-day but to a low-key restaurant with a group of friends. HOpefully it will not be TOO crowded….have a good one!

  10. Well done on your tv appearance – nice to see a pictures as obviously I cannot watch in the UK. But you can count that I would certainly be watching if I had that channel. Marvellous compilation of recipes, I better not show them to my husband as he might start ordering like off a menu!

  11. We were supposed to go over to a friends’ house for dinner tonight but she is sick so we are braving the Seattle dining scene for Valentine’s Eve. We are going to a gastropub so I’m hoping we don’t get price gouged. Tomorrow I am cooking for a friend so there will be chocolate!

  12. You are too cute (and famous)!!! Love your video. So great to see you “Live!” The pomegranate salad looks delicious. Clean and healthy. Love those ice cream sandwiches. Thanks for all the Valentine’s suggestions.

  13. I just baked the Oatmeal Berry Muffins yesterday! I waited until this morning to toast and add a little butter…..delish! I put some in the fridge for the rest of the week and put the rest in the freezer!

  14. I somehow always associate Valentine’s Day with chocolate so I make chocolate cakes or cookies. This year I tried my first chocolate fudge cake and I must say it was really delicious.
