Sharing Some Great Valentine’s Day Recipes!

St. Valentine’s Day is just one week away and I’ve been planning the menu for what we will (cross my fingers) enjoy for the special (even if commercialized) day of amore’!  Time, it is a-fleeting, so hopefully this post will give you some ideas of some my tried-and-true recipes that can be prepared for any time of the day, from breakfast to after-dinner cocktails.
Each of these recipes will also bring the beautiful, romantic color of red to your table to add to the atmosphere of affection.  Of course there are many more recipes to choose from, but I thought it would be fun to just focus on those that are red just for this occasion.
For the kids, I always have Valentine’s Day suckers and candy in a large bowl for them to grab.  They are just so cute!  If I were a little one, I wouldn’t be able to resist these treats!
Whatever you choose to serve for Valentine’s Day, I know that you’ll be delighted with any of the recipes shared with you here!

Your comments make me smile and I promise to get back to you. I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen or hummingbirds in my gardens.

  1. There is so much V-Day inspiration here! The.Boy. is going to be very thankful that I saw this post!

    Also, I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. If there’s anythign I can do or if you just want to talk or vent, don’t hesitate to reach out!

  2. Do I have to pick just one, Roz?!? At first, I was merely drooling over the french toast, until I saw the lemon torte! I really could have all of these — easy! AS Joanne says, a whole lot of inspiration, Italian or not!

  3. Such inspiration for a memorable day. It is what we make it.

  4. It doesn’t get any better than this – great recipes!!!

  5. Lot’s of pretty red Roz

  6. Everything looks divine Roz! Happy Valentine’s Day ♥

  7. SO many yummy foods in reds and pinks! Of course, I’m drooling over all the desserts.

    You are more than welcome to join the Sunday Supper group…Isabel from Family Foodie is our leader. I’ll certainly put in a good word for you. You can choose to post or not to post each week depending on the theme…and there are specific instructions about how and when to post. She’s going out of town this weekend, but here is her site if you want to contact her about joining! I’d love to have you in the group :)

  8. OMG! You are killing me! This Valentine array is simply stunning!

  9. I am going to make the French Toast!! Sounds yummy!

  10. Great collection of recipes.

  11. I want to make them as soon as possible!! :) My girlfriend and I share a passion for cooking and a few days ago I decided to make a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zac’s cooking school here in Vancouver – cooking classes for couples as a Valentine’s gift for her. And I think many of your recipes will most certainly be among the first ones we’ll try together. So it fits in perfectly with my romantic plans. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
