35 Sweet Treats For Your Valentine

I have to admit, I am one of those people that loves Valentine's Day.

Although, within my family, I am the only one and they all look at me like I am crazy.

I do believe my daughter once called me a sell out.


Come on!

I mean I know it can be a bit cheesy, and is a "Hallmark holiday" and the candy and jewelry companies salivate at the amount of money they will be making every year. 

But I don't love it for the gifts. I don't expect anything.

Oh, don't get me wrong, some flowers and a card are always nice. 

But it is more about singling out the one that you love and showing them how special they are.

Of course for me, that means I cook for them.

What is wrong with a nice romantic meal for two?

As long as he does the dishes of course!!

Valentine's Day is one of the rare occasions that I really crave sweets. I can pretty much go chocolate free for most of the year. But there are times when I just have to have my sweets, and one of them is Valentine's Day!

This year, as I was deciding what to make, I looked back at a few of my past favorites. Champagne Poached Strawberries with Mascarpone, and Dark Chocolate Cake with Ganache Frosting. But then I decided I wanted to try something new.

Where am I going to look for a new idea?

Within my foodie family of course!

Here are just a few of my favorites.

I hope you find something new to try!!
