Now that we’ve survived the excitement of the Super Bowl, it’s time to put our love of football behind us and start thinking about the other things we love.  Valentines Day is this weekend, so I’ve rounded up some great recipes for some very sweet ways to show some love to the people we love!

We all know the importance of eating breakfast, so of course a great Valentines Day starts with some great breakfast treats:

This heart shaped bacon from Food Network is just too cute:

I saved the best for last, because cookies are my favorite:

Of course I started with these Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod (I really love red velvet, in case you couldn’t tell):
