I love making special meals for my family. Valentine's Day presents a perfect opportunity to say "I love you" with food. 

For Breakfast: 

  • heart-shaped pancakes 
  • toast cut into a heart shape and then slathered with butter and jam
  • egg sandwich, assembled and then cut with a heart-shaped cookie cutter

For Lunch:

  • heart-shaped sandwich in the lunch box
  • brownies cut into a heart shape
  • a heart-shaped love note tucked inside the lunchbox (or briefcase)

For Dinner:

  • Your favorite pizza shaped like a heart

Need help with the dough? Here's a recipe you might like to use. The dough is easily made in the bread machine, or just take the idea and use your own favorite pizza crust. It makes three medium pizzas, so everybody in the family can have their favorite toppings.

  • And for dessert, this really cool looking, easy to make Valentine's Day Peek-A-Boo Pound Cake by Very Culinary

This recipe uses all boxed ingredients, and the blogger makes it sound so easy to make. I think I might just have to give it a try!
