20+ Valentine's Day Treats

Sweet or savory...here are 20+ treats to make that day special!

20+ Valentine's Day Treats...both salty and sweet! (sweetandsavoryfood.com)

That romantic day that everyone either loves or hates is almost here!  I find that people who are in love, generally love it, and those that aren't in love, generally hate it.

The husband and I don't normally go all out, mainly because his birthday is a couple of days prior, but we do celebrate.  I often make his favorite homemade strawberry cheesecake and I'll whip up something fun for the kids.  Heart shaped pancakes, strawberries and whip cream, French toast topped with blueberries or cut-out heart shaped sandwiches in their lunch boxes.

Here's the thing.  Even if it is a holiday that doesn't otherwise excite you, make it fun anyway. Especially if you have kids!  Show them how much you love them.  They'll really enjoy it and I can almost bet it will start your day off right.

Because trust me, starting your day off positive is a game changer.

Here we go!  Pick out a few of these and let your family decide which one you should make for Valentine's Day.  They're a load of fun!


XOXO Rice Krispie Treats - There is no better way to show your love than these fun treats!


Sweet Chili Baked Brie - melty brie wrapped in puff pastry and dunked
 into a sweet, spicy sauce, perfect!

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day everyone!
