Valentine’s Day desserts

GonePinning

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with my day job and Seattle’s run at the Super Bowl (here, here) so February sort of snuck up on me.

Luckily I still have a few days (eight to be exact) to get my “stuff” together and plan a special day for my one and only.

We’ll likely plan a fun adventure either around town or just out of town: think breakfast at the Market or a quick ferry ride west for some wine tasting or beach combing.

We’ll also likely plan a dinner at home. (We’re not much for the often jacked-up prices on Valentine’s Day…) And with dinner comes dessert. Here are some delicious-sounding desserts that would round out our (and your!) fancy dinner quite well!

Macarons

Brandon is getting better at macarons. Maybe we try these out? They're cute and delicious-looking!

Strawberry shortcake or these Puff Pastry with Sabayon Custard and Strawberries 

These are pretty fancy. I'd settle for these as strawberry shortcakes!

Perhaps a chocolate lava cake?! 

For any and every chocolate lover: lava cake!
