We all want to make our loved ones feel special, especially on valentine’s day. Here are some easy ideas, that don’t require a lot of work at all. They are so easy, you can even do them with your kids, but they add a nice touch to your day.
All you need is one heart shaped cookie cutter, and some basic food from around the house.
Soup and mini sandwiches, or croutons.
I used white bread and whole wheat bread to get a two toned effect.
Start by cutting out heart shapes, with your cookie cutter, from a slice of bread of your choice.
You can just drizzle them with olive oil and herbs, and toast them in the oven for a few minutes, to get delicious and lovely croutons, to munch on with your soup.
Or you can create mini sandwiches, by layering the heart shaped bread with spreads or cheese, and toasting them in the oven until the cheese is melted. Serve with soup or salad for a tasty Valentine ’s Day meal.
Here I created a healthy and satisfying breakfast to serve your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day.
I filled the bowl with Greek yogurt. I sliced some fresh strawberries, and sprinkled some blueberries. I filled silicone molds with blended frozen strawberries, and strawberry yogurt, and froze them. I popped them out and put them in right before serving. They add a nice personal touch and express your love in a creative way. Who can refuse such a healthy, delicious, and pretty breakfast??
Pancakes an all time favorite, can be made more interesting and exciting to suit the mood of the day.
Start with some pancakes, you can even use store bought, and using a cookie cutter, cut out some hearts from the centers. You can use the heart shapes, and the pancake with the heart shape cutouts. Fill in the opening with strawberry sauce, or some pancake syrup, or jam.
Sprinkle with confectionary sugar, and decorate with berries and whipped cream. And of course, serve it on your prettiest plate.
Here I created a fun and flirty dessert. I cut sliced fruit with a cookie cutter. I used silicone heart shaped molds, and filled them with softened sorbet and strawberry ice cream. I froze them again, and popped them out of their molds, right before serving.
Blend some frozen strawberries with sugar, to make a strawberry sauce that you can drizzle over deserts or smear on the plate, for a colorful touch.
Lay your heart shaped sorbets, fruits and strawberry sauce on a pretty plate. Put some ice cream in a small bowl, or martini glass, next to it, for a yummy and fun dessert.
