Valentines Day is one of those holidays that I especially love having on a weekend.  When it falls on a week day I feel the need to bust out some strawberry milk for my kids as they’re rushing out the door for school and maybe pull out some pink paper plates or something.  It’s always rushed and crazy.  But on a weekend?  It’s not like Christmas or Thanksgiving where there’s a million other things to do.  It’s the perfect holiday to make something extra special and enjoy a slow morning at home stuffing it in your face.  So today, I give you six of my favorite things to stuff in my face.  Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!  If you’re looking for more inspiration, check out our Valentine Section, right here!

Valentines Breakfast

  1.  Crepes:  They’re not as hard as you think! Easy peasy with our tutorial.  Set out a bunch of fun toppings like fruits, chocolate sauce, nutella, fresh lemons, balasamics, etc.  2.  Puffed Oven Pancakes:  Kids love these for dipping.  Basically a baby German pancake.  3.  Whipped Sweet Orange Berry Butter:  Make any ol’ pancake or waffle recipe (or heck, just toast!) and dress it up with this amazing butter.  It makes everything way better.

    4.  Chocolate French Toast:  As simple to make as traditional french toast, but CHOCOLATE.  

    5.  Overnight Yeasted Waffles:  Make Valentine’s morning a breeze by prepping this waffle batter the night before.  It’s like no other you’ve tried!  Top it with fancy syrup and nutella-whipped cream.  

    6.  Stuffed Strawberry-Lemon Croissant French Toast:  Hands down one of my most favorite recipes on this website.  Top it with fresh berries for one of the most amazing things you will ever eat.  Bonus- make it the night before!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cream Puffs

If homemade pastry intimidates you, don’t let it!  Sure there are some super complicated pastry recipes that are quite tricky to take on at home, but cream puffs aren’t one of them.  They are honestly one of THE easiest things to make.  They’re made from a dough called Pâte à Choux, which requires only a few very basic ingredients like  eggs, flour, and butter.  It literally takes minutes to make and you’ll feel so fancy.   You can make so many awesome things …
