The best part of Valentine’s Day is the food, and I say that as someone who is in a happy relationship. Before labelling me as a cynic, think about it. Chocolate, heart candy, dinners – these are central elements to the whole Valentine’s Day experience. If you’re anything like me, you prefer a home cooked meal best of all, and that’s where these recipes come in. They’re the perfect solution when it comes to creating some truly delicious and romantic fare. Also, if you looked closely enough, you may notice that a lot of these recipes contain aphrodisiac ingredients, just in case you’re interested in the second best thing about Valentine’s Day.
I’ll take mine in bed, thanks.
You may put on some weight just by looking at the recipe, but I can assure you that it’s worth it. What better way to start letting yourself go once securing your valentine?
I’m really not much of a pink girl, but these are over the top enough for me to approve. Plus, I happen to one of those weirdos that rather likes things being sweetened and colored by beetroot juice. If that isn’t your jam, I suggest replacing it with pink food colouring.
I trust anyone that says things like “You’ve used so much oil, the U.S. want to invade the plate.” Plus, just being able to pull off a decent hollandaise is romantic as is.
Oysters are already a traditionally romantic food, but adding bacon is always a bonus. As such, this makes for a lovely entree.
Healthy. Simple. Delicious. Aphrodisiac. What else can I say?
Despite popular belief, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about the ladies. In fact, regardless of my ovaries, I would be delighted to be served this delicious comfort food. It would make for a nice counterbalance to the pink and red explosion we’re all subjected to during the day.
This may not sound particularly romantic, but an endorsement from Lady and the Tramp is good enough for me.
Sometimes it’s preferable to skip straight to dessert…
This is a cute little recipe for the kids, who are sure to love them.
Because I’ll take any excuse to have a cupcake.
Why buy a box of chocolates when you can make your own? They’re so much more thoughtful and delicious!
Because, chocolate. Do you really need more of an excuse?
Because what’s Valentine’s Day without some cocktails?
A dessert and a drink in one glass…clearly this romantic beverage was invented for me.
For those who may need the caffeine boost for later on…
A fresh and zesty drink to remind you of young love.
One of the greatest dramatic love stories of all time combined with southern charm. Frankly my dear, I’ll take another.
