Valentine’s Day is a celebrated holiday worldwide. In the Christian world, the 14th of February celebrates Saint Valentinus. However, there isn’t any special meaning to it. Saint Valentine of Rome was a third-century Roman saint commemorated on 14th of February and associated since the High Middle Ages with a tradition of courtly love.

Valentine’s Day itself has many understandings in the world. In most of the countries, especially in the Anglo-American world, they refer to the romance and love with this holiday. There are countries like Finland or Estonia, which relate the holiday to the Friend’s Day. In Latin America, people refer Valentine’s Day to the Day of Love and Friendship.

My way of celebrating Valentine

To be honest, I like something in between. I think it would be a little depressive holiday strictly related to romance and love only. What about those who are not that lucky or choose not to be? I am not a huge fan of the labeling and I also understand if someone doesn’t like to celebrate it. However, there is no harm on doing something pleasant with your beloved ones, even every day, not especially on the 14th of February.

I also experienced way too many Valentines, celebrated with my good friends. It was still nice, perhaps different. Now, having a baby, the holiday also gives another meaning. What about her, she isn’t due for romance and love, hopefully at least for a while. Therefore, I suggest to prepare some goodies and just to be happy. No matter if happiness means family, shopping, eating, cooking, gathering with friends, reading, writing or gaming.

Beautiful dishes for Valentine

Let me give you couple of tips for awesome Valentine’s breakfast and not for grown ups only.

Impress your beloved with Chocolate Waffles, topped up with yoghurt, cookie crumble and sexy strawberries. Check out my Vanilla Cupcakes and Blueberry Muffins, they win every time.
You can also serve easy pancakes with homemade marmalade, Feta Cheese and fresh juice. No limits to imagination, just browse through my recipes and have fun with it.

My latest additions are Valentine’s Honey Cake and beautifully puffed hearts filled with homemade marzipan.

For a little hint of my Menu 2016, let me quote the world-famous Julia Child:

“The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”

Delicious Cheese Soufflé Appetizer, Rib Eye Main Course and Lovely Chocolate Dessert.

Perhaps veggier alternative as per in My Menu 2017: Various Crostini Appetizers, Almond Trout Main Course and Dear Peach Tiramisu Dessert. Yummy and yummy.

Eat, Love and enjoy Your Valentine!
