10 Valentine’s Day Recipes that are delicious and easy to make.

Valentine’s Day is definitely a Hallmark holiday. I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with this day. Back in college, it was one of the most depressing days of the year cause I never had a boyfriend lol… but once I got married to my husband (Sanjiv), I’ll admit that I started to enjoy Valentine’s Day.

As much as this day is hyped up, I still love doing a night out or a date night at home with a home-cooked meal. Today I’m sharing 10 of my favorite Valentine’s Day Recipes. These recipes include a roundup of brunch, dinner, and dessert.
