    The love heart cookies are so cute! I have wanted to learn the art of flooding for a while, so these will give me the perfect excuse!

    I love Valentine’s Day. And a big part of it is because of pretty desserts like these!!

    So many great recipes! I wish I had a special someone to bake for. Maybe next year . . .

    These round ups are always a laugh but this is the best! Nothing says happy heart day like chicken fried steak or general Tso’s chicken. LOL.

      Why not? My husband would love it if I made him chicken fried steak… and General Tso chicken might be someone else’s favorite. 🙂


  7. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts on February 7, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    I am not a huge Valentine’s Day fan, but I love the excuse to eat dessert, so I will take it!


  8. Meg on February 7, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Oh, this is a dangerous list! And I might make it more dangerous by adding one of my favorite SUPER easy recipes: Marzipan Hearts: http://www.odense-marcipan.us/baked-marzipan-hearts/

    I might not be leaving my kitchen this weekend!

  11. Becky on February 7, 2013 at 10:01 pm

    I always make molten chocolate lava cakes with fresh whipped cream. My boyfriend would be devastated if I didn’t!


  12. Tracey on February 7, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    I *really* need to try that red velvet cheesecake. It’s been on my to-do list ever since you posted it, I’ve gotta stop procrastinating!

    Where to even start?!?!

    The beautiful shape and the delicious taste is the best combination. They say the way to a man’s heart goes through his stomach. And Valentine’s Day is a perfect opportunity to put this statement into practice. 😀 And it’s funny but what immediately came to my mind was the gift I’m gonna give to my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. I’ve made a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zac’s cooking school here in Vancouver – cooking classes for couples and this recipe will most certainly be among the first ones we’ll try together. So it fits in perfectly with my romantic plans. 🙂

    So excited to try some of these! Love all of your lists.
    Just a heads up, though… Miscellaneous is spelled incorrectly in that last category. 🙂

    His employer, Montgomery Ward, did.
