Valentine Day




Friends it is Valentine's Day  ,a day that celebrates love and that's what makes it so special. We all love this day and look forward to plan out something special and to spend the day with some one special.


 You can feel the romance in the air. Also stores are decked up with items in red color, be it balloons, heart shaped candies, cards. Along with the gifts, cards, & flowers; food too plays an important role. People go out for candle light dinner or plan out something special at home. 


Add a bottle of nice wine with romantic music playing in the background, you will be all set for a great romantic evening. If you don't drink wine, get sparkling cider. Desserts and chocolates and giving gifts to each other can also make the day so special for each other. Happy Valentine Day!!!


I would love to share the recipe for Valentine Cupcakes.
