Valentine’s Day. It’s coming at you, whether you’re ready (and love it) or not. This year, step away from the corny and cliche (we see you, roses, heart-shaped boxes chocolates, and slow jam playlists).

Whether your sweetie is your significant other, your bestie or your kids, we’ve got you covered with these food-related Valentines sure to make them swoon.
