Pink & Red Dessert Ideas for Valentine’s Day

This round-up will make you fall in love and very hungry!!!

How many Valentines did you give out back in school? Remember how romantic Valentine’s Day was when you were in kids and teens?

What wonderful memories!

The thrill of a romantic dinner, lovely music, and roses. Didn’t that feel wonderful?

Valentine’s Day used to be such a romantic occasion before I became a mother. The two of us would spend a quiet evening together enjoying each other’s company.

The last time we had a childless Valentine’s Day, my husband and we were in London walking by the Big Ben and the London Eye. It’s days like those that I dream of now as I spend each day working like crazy, doing housework and making sure life goes on!

It is easy to overlook Valentine’s Day after you have been married for a while. I’m not even going to mention how difficult it gets if you have kids!

We now look forward to only minutes here and there, occasional movie nights or small cuddles before bed and after the girl goes to sleep that we spend together.

How could someone not get inspired by all these awesome recipes!… I bet you are gonna love them as much as I have!
