Food for Love

We all know the way to a man's heart is usually through his stomach, so why not cook up some love based treats this Valentines Day and really show him how much you care.

I have searched the internet for a range of Valentines Day themed recipes to get your through a whole day of romantic food, that is sure to keep you man happily feed and happily in love. From breakfast through to dinner, with some sweet treats in-between I have found recipes that add a Valentines Day twist to them all. Hopefully you will find a recipe you love and something you will both enjoy eating. Plus if it's a family day, then there are a few recipes that the kids will enjoy helping you make, and even more, helping your eat.

All you male readers out there, this hub may be directed at women, but that is me just stereotyping. Us ladies would love for our man to treat us to some romantic food on Valentines day too. And if you can cook any of these dishes you will be sure to impress us!

Heart Pancakes

1. Heart filled Pancakes

So we need to start the day off with a nice breakfast in bed. What about these great heart centred pancakes from Gatorade Military? You simply make up regular pancake batter, split it in half and add some food colouring to one half, then make your pancakes, use a cookie cutter to remove a heart from the centre and switch them over! Simple yet it looks very effective. Serve with a nice strawberry or raspberry sauce and some fresh fruit and your sure to win him over. Expect many thankful kisses and hugs in return for the rest of the day!

Actually any males reading this, us women would also love breakfast in bed if you fancy trying your hand at some pancakes too!

2. Heart Shaped Ravioli

On to lunch time. You don't want anything to heavy so why not try out this simple and sweet heart shaped ravioli that I found on Vegalicious.org. This is sure to show him just how much you care and it'll taste great too. The recipe is for vegitarian ravioli but you could just as easily change the filling for something else of your choice - maybe Salmon and Ricotta or Sausage meat with some Chilli for a spicy kick. Whatever you chose to fill your ravioli with, the heart shape will be a great fun alternative to regular square ravioli.

3.. Heart Cupcakes

This crafty little bake was found over on Made with Love By Me and really is super sweet. No need to save this one till Valentines day as I am sure it will go down well all year round at any party or occasion. But if your feeling creative on Valentines these would make a perfect afternoon snack. Just think how surprised he will be when he bites into it and finds the little heart in the middle! You can stick to simple plain sponge or you could try have some fun with a chocolate mix with a red heart centre instead. The possibilities are only hampered by your imagination (and bravery in your baking skills!)

These will also be a great treat for your children to share with their friends at school!

4. Heart Shaped Pizza

All of us love a posh meal now and again, but we also all love a take away! So why not treat your man to a romantic night in with a homemade Heart Shaped Pizza with all his favourite toppings, while your curl up on the sofa with a good film. This recipe can be found over on Chef Mom on She Knows. It is pretty simple, you just have to make the dough yourself! If you have a multi function bread maker you may find it can make pizza dough for you, then it's just a case of rolling it out and adding the toppings, before placing it in the oven to cook. Dominos eat your heart out, just be sure he doesn't think you'll be whipping one up every weekend for him!

If your having a family night instead, I'm sure the kids will love topping the pizzas for you!

Heart Shaped Macaroon Sandwich with Strawberries and Cream

5. Macaroon Sandwich

From the mind of the Mad Baker came these amazing looking pink Macaroons filled with fruit and cream. I'm sure they taste just as amazing as they look, and they will make the perfect dessert to end a romance filled day of Valentines treats. You can make them heart shaped or simple cicles as the wow factor will still be there. They will be a sweet treat to end the day on, but not too heavy either - and that's got to be at least 1 portion of fruit right? So they are 50% healthy! hehe!

Your man will be in awe of your creative culinary skills if you cook just one of the treats I have mentioned here, but I think these macaroons are my favourite!
