First up is a very festive breakfast with Valentine’s Day Heart Shaped Eggs and Toast
Heart Shaped Eggs and Toast
Two different sized heart-shaped cookie cuttersYour favorite bread slightly toastedEggsInstructionsIn a buttered nonstick frying pan, place the large heart shape cookie cutter in center of the pan. Crack two eggs in center of the cookie cutter and cook over low to medium heat. If needed, cover the cookie cutter with a lid to speed up cook time. Cook until yolks are firm.Remove heart shaped egg and on a board or flat surface, press a small cookie cutter into the center. Remove small heart shape egg using the same size small heart shaped cookie cutter, press into the sliced and lightly toasted bread. Insert small toast into the heart opening of the heart shaped egg.* Note: it may help to use non-stick spray on the cookie cutter you are cooking with and you can also mix the eggs before pouring into the heart shape.
To really take your Valentine’s Day breakfast to the next level, try making these Baked Bacon Roses.

For dinner, try this incredible Valentine’s Branzino Dinner … It looks and tastes like a gourmet restaurant meal, but can easily be made at home!
Now, for dessert: This year we are recommending a dessert that our friend Tamera Mowry made …. Check out these Chocolate Dipped Spoons + Edible Flowers. They are so easy to make, are not too big of a portion, and look beautiful with the edible flowers. Plus, we love that she made them using vegan chocolate chips.
Hope you guys have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! XO
