Valentine’s Day Recipe Roundup

AlwaysReiding_ValentinesdaylinkupValentine’s Day Recipe Roundup

Valentine’s Day has always been special in my family. Great Aunt Jan always made the day special for me, despite not getting a Valentine of my own until college. It usually meant a card, some candy or a special treat and usually a book I really REALLY wanted (or sometimes a movie). I enjoyed shopping for Valentine’s Day cards in school, and the class art project of making a valentine box and carefully adding a card for each person, along with their names and a special treat.  As an adult, I’ve usually made certain my coworkers get a little something for the day, too. My husband will usually plan a special dinner reservation the day before or the day after–which means that the day OF Valentine’s day, we cook at home. Which brings me to something very awesome. I have joined up with some really amazing bloggers in a Valentine’s Day Recipe linkup. Please check out the following blogs and support them.
