Pretty Pink Desserts for Valentine’s Day from Our Favorite Bloggers
Like most people who run in the “perpetually single” circle when it comes to relationships, I spent many years having a hard time mustering enthusiasm for Valentine’s Day. Only in the last year or so have I begun to accept it for what it is: a day of love, regardless of what kind. Romantic, platonic, familial, self, they’re all important and worthwhile kinds of love.
So whatever love you’re celebrating this year, make sure you do it right — with lots of sweet treats! What better way to show your love than with some pretty pink desserts? Dédé has, in her words, “an unnatural attraction to pink for someone her age”, but one look at these pretty confections and who can argue? We like to eat well and have fun and pink just livens everything up.
