Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Do you have any special plans? While dinner, chocolate and flowers are great (I DO love some beautiful flowers!), I think Valentine’s Day should be more about your connection with your loved one than the material things. My ultimate V-day is spending quality time with my love, cooking dinner and appreciating each other. I’d swap a pre-arranged fixed menu any day for a home cooked meal, made together over a good movie or bottle of wine. Although you should celebrate love every day of the year, let’s be real – life is busy. We don’t always have time to dedicate towards our relationships and I like that there is a special day of the year dedicated to just that! A nice little pause in our day-to-day to spend with our loved ones.
Ok, so on to the good stuff…. the food!! This year, I’m really excited about our menu! For dinner, we will be making this Chick’n Fettucine Alfredo with Artichoke Hearts, and for dessert, we will be making these Chocolate Cookie Cakes and my favourite Vegan Vanilla Cake with Raspberry Jam and Buttercream Frosting (recipe below).
