Bite Me: Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day, love it or hate it, it’s a good excuse to eat some delicious food.

Wether you are single or madly in love, you might as well get together with someone who makes you smile and indulge a little.  I’ve celebrated many single Valentine’s Days myself, and it never stopped me from putting together edible gifts for friends, eating boxes of chocolate all to myself, or telling somebody that I loved them.

Personally, I try to avoid the Hallmark cards and drugstore chocolate and keep Valentines day fun and easy.  This year we’re doing no gifts, but instead we’ll be indulging in a delicious meal at home.  Here are some fun edible ideas to celebrate l’amour deliciously come Tuesday:

  1. I am not a big Valentines day person, but i love another reason to eat chocolate and drink a glass of wine or two, haha

    lori and gary actually had their real first official date 9 years ago on Valentines day, so it is special to them.

      Yes, wine and chocolate are the beauty of the day, no? Happy Valentines/Anniversary to Gary and Lori – and cheers to you beautiful!

  2. we aren’t exchanging gifts but i’m working on a crafty thing as i type this (waiting for the paint to dry). it’s a very simple surprise that i’ll blog about soon x wish i lived up there to take advantage of those spots you recommend!

    • Gillian

      Creative gifts are the best! I love the sweet things you two do for each other! Might get a little crafty around here – but the day shall mostly be food and bubbly focused! You must come to Toronto at some point!

      Can’t wait to try your recipe Joy – Maca is a super sexy food! And we’re planning on going skating at Harbourfront soon, it’s been too long! With the promise of a glass of vino afterwards I’m all in.
