It’s Valentine Week. You didn’t forget about it, did you? Friday is Valentine’s Day, so if you don’t have a plan you might want to start preparing for Friday. I’m hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week, so be sure to check out the roundup below for more Valentine ideas.
This week, I’m making gluten-free/dairy-free/nut-free Heart-shaped Sugar Cookies for school celebrations. I’m also making Meringue Heart Cookies and Dairy-free Creme Brulee for the family to enjoy. For Valentine’s Day dinner, my kids get to enjoy their favorite Heart-Shaped Pizza, gluten-free of course.
My picks for Valentine treats this year are YummyEarth Organic Gummy Bears and Angie’s Tutti Frutti Popcorn and Vanilla Cupcake Popcorn, all conveniently packaged to give away to classmates and friends.
