Valentine's Day: Recipes for Baking Love

ImageHow do foodies say I love you? 

I bake. Be it Valentine's Day, a birthday or ground hog day - I bake sinfully delicious treats.  It's a tradition I started when I baked my way to my husband's heart with gooey, chocolate brownies even before our first date. 

These days his expectations are a bit higher than mere brownies. Fueled by many years of truly decadent Valentine's Day delights he expects grander and grander choices each year.  While I am planing on learning even better candy making skills, hopefully these delicious, truffles will make the grade this Valentine's Day. 


ImageTo help with your love baking we've scoured the Project Foodie recipe box to find Valentine's recipes and tagged them valentines-day. You'll find recipes ranging from breakfast, to drinks, to romantic mains, but the largest category is Valentine's Day desserts with over 100 recipes.  

Clearly, I'm not the only foodie out there baking love.  Baking, especially baking with chocolate, is one of the top ways foodies say I love you. Folklore has it that chocolate is an aphrodisiac, and although modern science wants to put out that flame who can deny that when you get a piece of chocolate decadence from your love it doesn't light you up?  

To help you weed through the chocolate love, below is my selection of favorite chocolate recipes for Valentine's Day.

And if you're looking for a bit more than recipes Better Homes & Gardens offers up party planning and romantic meal ideas, Southern Living not only has romantic menus, but romantic getaways too, and Real Simple has some neat gift ideas.  Not to be outdone by the magazines, the Food Network has Tim Allen posing as cupid dishing out romantic drink and dessert ideas.  And last, by not least, the queen of all things, Martha Stewart, has some great Valentine's Day gifts and crafts.

This is made easier thanks to the steps at the back if the issue. Everyone should attempt a soufflé at least once.
