30 Valentine's Day Recipes

Eeek! I'm so excited for Valentine's Day!! I'm not sure I have ever anticipated the holidays as much as I have this last year with blogging. There's just something about finding so many fun activities and recipes to create with my kids that makes me anticipate it that much more! Today we enjoyed making Things I Love books (free printable on Frog Spot) that we featured as a bonus on our 14+ Valentines Activities for Kids post.

When it comes to finding new recipes, this last month cohosting Weekend Bites with Adelina from Home Maid Simple has been especially fun. With so many delectable Valentines recipes shared I just had to create a recipe roundup! I tried to compile as many as possible to feature different types of cookies, cakes, candy, and main dishes. I hope you find some new recipes you'd like to make this Valentine's Day!
