Made with Love: Recipes for Valentine’s Day
Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is an excuse to remind your favorite people how much they mean to you. Let’s face it, V-Day focuses mainly on women, not that we don’t deserve it, but I like to make sure my husband feels special too. The most useful Valentine’s Day present I’ve given was the portable propane grill that we always take to the beach, and the best last minute present I thought of was stocking the fridge with several different kinds of beer.
If I remember the holiday at least a day in advance, I like to search for special recipes to show my love. Here are some of the Valentine’s Day recipes I want to try…
