Posted by NoraMonday February 13, 2012
With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, these bloggers are pulling out all the stops and are cooking up some amazing dishes that are just as fun to look at as they are to eat! Make sure to check back later today for the second installment of our Best of the Web series and more V-Day sweets and treats.
Vegan Strawberry Cashew Milk Shake
If you’re a parent, this is a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your children! Blend some up in the morning before school for a festive breakfast. Bonus points if you can find straws as cute as The Tomato Tart did for hers!
Ginger Rose Sparkler
This classy cocktail from Eat Boutique is perfect for a Valentine’s Day ladies-night-in! Dress it up even more by adding rose petals to your serving tray.
Homemade Meringue Candy Necklace
These adorable homemade candy necklaces from Bakingdom are the perfect edible craft to do with your kids. For a new spin on the old and outdone cartoon-themed Valentine cards, send your little ones to school with candy necklaces for their friends. Don’t worry, they’re nut free!
Blackberry Chocolate Cake
Wow- this presentation of this is to die for! And I’m sure the taste is too! Skip the flowers and boxes of chocolates, this cake by Love & Olive Oil might actually be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, and for anyone on your list.
Valentine’s Day Somewhere Beyond the Sea
Food 52 picked some of their best recipes to compile an entire meal for Valentine’s Day. Complete with a cocktail, salad, appetizer, entrees, and dessert, these recipes are elegant, and yet simple. Pick and chose one or two, or create the whole thing. I’m thinking this will be a fun Valentine’s Night activity for you and your other half!
