Do you love Valentines' Day?
I don't...I am not one to celebrate Valentines' Day, typically, for myself. I firmly believe that love and romance belong front and center all the time. Why is February 14th designated as a day for people to show their sweethearts that they are adored? What about the other 364 days?!?
I would rather get a bunch of handpicked wildflowers on a random day in January than a dozen red roses on a day when florists mark up beyond the usual 300% markup on flowers anyway.
Okay, I know that I sound unapologetically unromantic. Is there a Valentines' equivalent of a Grinch? That would be me.
But one of my boys loves Valentines' Day and spends weeks planning his cards for his classmates; the other could take it or leave it, but definitely likes the treats.
These were some heart-shaped treats we made last year: Beet Sugar Cookies.
So, with that in mind, I decided that my February linky theme would be sweet treats...for your spouse, for your kiddos, for the kids' classmates. Whoever.
