Whether you love baking desserts on a regular basis, or save your sugar creations for special occasions, it’s safe to say Valentine’s is the one day you should go all out. Skip the box of chocolates and gift your special someone a homemade treat made with love. You might enjoy a nice evening on the town, or cook a delicious meal right in your own kitchen. Either way, treat yourselves to something sweet and fresh from the oven.
