Valentine's Day Recipes and Recipe Ideas for a "Romantic Dinner for Two" which include raspberries are naturally good choices.
Not only will the sweet taste of raspberries enhance any recipe, but the natural "Valentine red" of the red raspberry makes raspberry recipes perfect for Your Valentine!
No fresh raspberries on hand? No problem, you can use frozen raspberries for many of the recipes!
Valentine's Day is a great reminder to me of my blessings of being married to my dear husband. Thanks Pete for being the Best Valentine in the World...My Valentine! Your love and devotion to me and our family means the world to me! ♥ I LOVE YOU!
Valentines Day Recipes to create home-made Valentine's Day treats such as heart shaped raspberry cookies, raspberry cakes and cupcakes, raspberry pies, raspberry cheesecakes, and raspberry tarts are always well received and appreciated. Baked treats which you have made yourself are always far more special and memorable to the recipient than goodies that you have purchased.
Perhaps you are looking for a special Valentines Day Recipe for a home-made treat for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Or, maybe you are searching for a recipe for another special occasion such as a Wedding Anniversary or a Birthday Celebration...Celebrating "Love". Raspberry muffins, heart shaped raspberry pancakes or heart shaped french toast (with raspberry sauce), or raspberry scones that you have made yourself are excellent, easy to make, choices.
Or, perhaps your Special Someone prefers toast or bagels in the morning, and you want to surprise them with their favourite home-made raspberry jam or jelly.
If you are preparing a Romantic Dinner, why not make a leafy green salad with raspberries and heart shaped crotons? Or a melon ring fruit salad in the shape of a heart? You can buy fabulous, ready-made raspberry dressings, or you can easily make your own raspberry salad dressing.
A Special Dinner would not be complete without a special dessert. Raspberry desserts, whether simple or extravagant, always look festive and elegant when dotted with red raspberries!
Try one of the raspberry sauce recipes to drizzle over pound cake, ice cream or sorbet for a simple but scrumptious dessert!
Fondue offers a great opportunity for relaxed and intimate conversation after your dinner. You can choose one (or more) of a great variety of recipes for fruit fondue.
For a healthy snack on Valentine's Day, make a raspberry smoothie, or another home-made raspberry drink. Most fruit smoothies can be made using fresh or frozen fruit.
The ideas are endless...
