Hello Friends! Can you believe it's already almost Valentine's Day? Now, I have to be honest, we don't really make a big deal out of Valentine's Day. We typically avoid the crowds and enjoy a nice dinner in and I'm always spoiled with flowers being delivered at work. Add a sweet card into the mix and that's our Valentine's Day.
This year our plan is simple, make a homemade pizza together, bake a yummy dessert and lay in bed with our pups watching Netflix. Okay, so maybe it's no different than any other night, but like I said, we don't make a big "to do" out of Valentine's Day.
To us, the holiday is about spending time together. It's not about getting all gussied up and fighting the crowds at a local restaurant. It's not about shelling out money on flashy gifts, it's about showing our affection in small ways.
One of my favorite way to show affection is to cook or bake for someone. I mean, nothing says I love you like a batch of brownies, am I right?
I've complied a list of some amazing Valentine's desserts sure to bring a smile to your loved ones face(s).

What's the first thing you think of when you think of red? I think of strawberries. And then after I imagine strawberries I envision Strawberry Shortcake Pie. Anything that combines sugar, strawberries and cream cheese is a winner in my book.
