I thought I’d pop in with a few fun Valentines Day recipes for the week. I have to admit, Connor and I don’t really formally celebrate the holiday, but it’s a great excuse to whip up something special for a loved one or just yourself (just as important, if I do say so!),
We prefer to keep things casual, make an effort to disconnect, and just enjoy a nice quiet dinner together at home. I’ve rounded up some of my all-time favorites – everything from Valentines Day dinner recipes to dessert recipes – for inspiration below.
While a few of these recipes require a bit more work and time, most of the dinner recipes can be prepared in less than 45 minutes and nearly all of the desserts can be prepped ahead.
