Whether you’re celebrating with a loved one or planning a girl’s night in, Valentine’s Day is a great time to try your hand at a few new Valentine’s Day recipes. Besides, cooking is one of the best ways to connect with your partner, and we guarantee you’ll have more fun than you would at a crowded, overpriced restaurant. Early birds and brunch lovers can whip up a tasty breakfast in bed, which can consist of freshly-brewed coffee and the main dish of your choosing (we’re partial to these adorable pancakes). Those celebrating over dinnertime should consider making a few courses, which will make the meal feel extra special. Don’t forget to toast to the evening with a festive pink drink, followed by a Valentine’s Day cocktail to enjoy alongside your meal. The best part, of course, is dessert, and we have plenty to choose from. You can’t go wrong with a bite-sized baked good, or stick to the classics with chocolate-covered strawberries.
