There’s a reason they say the key to someone’s heart is through their stomach! There’s just no sweeter gesturet than making a home-cooked meal. So this Valentine’s Day, we’re opting out of cheezy, couples-filled restaurants and whippin’ up something good to eat for our sweethearts. From lovingly shaped waffles {hello breakfast in bed!} to a bold red colored beet risotto for dinner, these love-filled recipes will make anybody scream, “oh baby!” by the end of the night! Now that’s what we call a win-win!


Breakfast in bed couldn’t be any cuter than with these Heart Waffles. If you don’t have a heart shaped waffle maker, you can use a cute heart cookie cutter to get the same, perfectly adorable results. Top them with whipped cream and berries to really get the day started on a sweet note!


Speaking of sweets, you just can’t have too many on Valentine’s Day, right?! These rustic, Mini Strawberry Galettes are gorgeous to look at and even yummier to eat. We love the way this dessert doesn’t scream hearts and arrows, but certainly gets cupid’s job done. Leave them on the kitchen counter for easy nibbles throughout the day! Drooling…


Hello, gorgeously, bold Beet Buckwheat Risotto! This dish is the perfect dinner entree for the love struck vegetarians out there. It’s mind blowingly unique and not to mention, the flavors and heartiness of the beets and buckwheat will leave you and your honey feeling satisfied – it’s just filling enough to leave plenty of room for more dessert!!


If you’re searching for an equally unique dessert to pair with your risotto, look no further! These Grapefruit Possets cups with Pistachio Crumble on top sound ah-mazing. The light pink color is so precious {perfect for a single girl’s brunch too, right?!} and the cute individual servings make this treat extra special!


But if you really really wan to impress, we think you should whip up this perfectly cooked fish fillet with pink rhubarb on the side. This dish is delicate and so sophisticated – we have no doubt it will give any top restaurant’s Valentine’s Day menu a run for its money. Fair warning: it’s so impressive, your lover may want to skip dinner all together and go straight to dessert! No worries, you don’t have to thank us!! 😉
