Ah Valentine's Day. You either love it or hate it. I always take a lighthearted approach to this holiday. My husband and I shun marked up restaurant prices, and we typically grab burgers or make something at home. My sister and I continue our tradition of buying each other cute and kitschy little gifts (a tradition we started long ago before I even met my husband).
For better or worse, I rounded up my favorite recipes from fellow food bloggers that will perfectly fit into your Valentine's (or Galentine's!) Day plans. We've got some tasty desserts, drinks, and main courses here. I went a little crazy with all the pink and hearts, but hey, this is the one time of year where you can! Enjoy this roundup of 30 lovely Valentine's Day recipes! ♥
