Valentine's Day, though some may feel is just a greeting card holiday, is a special day of the year dedicated to celebrating love. Though the holiday may it's religious roots, many today celebrate Valentine's Day by showing their friends, family, and significant others how much we really do care and appreciate them. What better way to do that than feed them full of delicious food. The quickest way to the heart is through the stomach and these tasty recipes will definitely hit the spot. I have put together a collection of 50 recipes for you to choose when deciding a Valentine's Day Menu. Fill your day with great food with a few selections from this collection. This post is a little late. I apologize for that. I have been recently under the weather and blogging was a low priority. I am feeling better now though so....
......on with the recipes.
From the title of this recipe, you may be thinking, "I will never be able to make that." That is not the case what so ever. There are only a few ingredients you may have to pick up special for this recipe. Everything else will probably be in your pantry. Some of these may include the brioche bread (or another eggy bread), raspberries, challah wine, and mint leaves. Make this casserole the day before and pull out when you make your morning coffee to bake. The great thing about this recipe is that once you make the dish, it can sit in your fridge for up to 24 hours before baking.

Do you work on Valentine's Day? Some of us will, it's a fact of life. It falls on a Sunday so many will be off to church that morning as well. It might be beneficial to make a quick and healthy breakfast for Valentine's Day. I tried to include a little something for all tastes. That is where these quick and easy 10-minute open face sandwiches. Customize them to your taste adding things like fried eggs and spinach. Red peppers would be great too!
Another simple recipe that looks much fancier when complete, these 3 Ingredient strawberry pancakes will brighten your sweetie's day. All you need is eggs, bananas, and strawberries. very simple and yet delicious. These pancakes are so yummy, they don't even require syrup. If you happen to be someone that needs syrup (raises hand) I recommend taking some more strawberries, a little water, a little sugar, and a sauce pan.

Seafood is fast. You want to spend time with your loved ones on Valentine's day so I focused on recipes that could either be prepared in advance or recipes that would be quick to whip up. The Linguine with Shrimp Scampi is perfect for just that. Almost everything in this recipe is a pantry staple. No weird ingredients here. All you will need to purchase is fresh seafood.
Are you looking for something more sultry and steamy for dinner? These oysters are super simple and since you are using canned oysters, they are super easy to prepare and put together. The appetizer serves four people but when things are bite-sized, well it is really easy to go a little overboard. Pair these with a hearty salad. Use a heart cookie cutter and cut the different salad vegetables. Adds a little bit of fun to you Valentine's Day Dinner.
