Say "I Love You" with sweet treats
Nothing says "I love you" more than preparing Valentine's Day treats for family and friends. This year Valentine's Day falls on a Friday, which gives everyone a three-day weekend to celebrate and prepare special foods.
It is easy to set the mood with a few simple details that say Valentine's Day is here. A lace tablecloth, some pretty pink or red napkins, candles and fresh flowers – all create the feeling of romance.
With love radiating from the oven, here are three recipes that will be sure to put a smile in someone's heart.
