Holidays, Valentine’s Day The Easy Way

It’s all about Valentine’s Day this week with

a Valentine Tablescape Blog Hop,

a buffet of ideas for beautiful, romantic, sweet or fun ways

to set your table for Valentine’s Day



You can enjoy a lot of Valentine fun without working too hard…





You know the old saying,

“The way to a man’s heart is through is stomach?”

Well let’s update this saying for 2019 and amend it to

“The way to melt anyone’s heart is with wonderful food!”





And what about the saying “We eat with our eyes”

What we initially see is going to impact our taste buds,

so presentation is everything!




Simple food in a pretty setting becomes a gourmet dining experience!


Petite Cheesecake Boules are made with frozen cheesecake

Fancied up a bit

with a drizzle, a sprinkle, and berries




Since so many people opt to stay home for Valentine’s Day,

Here are a few more party worthy bites to make your day extra special!

Not only will these recipes melt hearts,

they are super easy!


Raspberry Cheesecake Trifle




Bacon Wrapped Sweet Chili Shrimp could not be easier,

Wrap shrimp in a partially cooked piece of bacon

Cover with Sweet Asian Chili sauce and bake,





Pimiento Cheese Cookies with Strawberry Icing

a sweet and savory treat all in one,

perfect for guys or gals!





Up the wow factor!

French Onion Soup Stuffed Mushrooms with Rosemary Croutons

Serve these as an appetizer or a side






If you’re having steaks,

serve them with a steakhouse style

Bernaise Sauce or Bleu Cheese Sauce






Whip up this Luscious Lemon Raspberry Pastry

Perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea with your “Galentines”






Raspberry White Chocolate Roll-ups are very simply divine!






Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies combine

the best of cake, cheesecake and brownies

into one dreamy dessert!





All Occasion Coconut Cupcakes

One of my very favorite desserts,

Can be decorated for any holiday or theme





And don’t forget something on a stick!


Breakfast Kebabs

Take these to work for a Valentine treat for everyone





BLT Kebabs

Serve these with or without a Bloody Mary





Pasta Lollipops




Antipasto Skewers

A Valentine picnic perhaps?





Teriyaki Steak Kebabs are a complete meal on a stick!

Marinate the meat ahead of time,

a great bottled marinade is Soy Vay Very Very Teriyaki

then let everyone make his/her own

Slice squash or zucchini, onions, mushrooms, peppers, pineapple, anything goes-

Add a sprinkle of sesame seeds to make them look festive

and grill or broil until done





Assemble Dessert Kebabs

with purchased brownies, cheesecake, candy bars and berries!





Now, wasn’t that easy!!

    Damn, woman! You are making me so hungry! And truer words were never spoken on those cliche statements you included. That BLT kabob on the Bloody Mary is calling me, but the shrimp, and the coconut cupcakes…..and all easy enough. Just wow!

  8. The BLT kabobs have me intrigued. I’m trying to come up with a main dish for a strolling dinner and then another bit (other people are bringing things). I might give these babies a try!

    What a wonderful assortment of delicious food! Maybe I shouldn’t have read this as I am going to bed, it’s making me hungry! Really like all your ideas on a stick, especially the breakfast foods and the antipasta version. Pinned and would like to try for picnics or anytime sounds good actually! Thanks Jenna.
