Love From The Kitchen: 14 Valentine’s Day Recipe Ideas

I have to admit I don’t always enjoy eating out on Valentine’s Day. Not because I’m against this holiday (I love me some champagne and chocolate) but because nothing kills my romantic mood quite like long queues, crowded restaurants, and hordes of other happy couples all striving to have the ‘perfect’night out.

So, this year my Honey and I are skipping the crowds and having a nice romantic meal at home instead. It will just be the two of us and that is just fine by me :). If you’re planning to stay at home too, below are some delicious Valentine’s Day recipes I recently found online. From classic heart-shaped cookies to yummy sushi and pizza, there’s really something for everyone.

Have a great Valentine’s Day! xx
