Gluten-Free Valentine's Day Desserts for Everyone

Let's face it. Valentine's Day can be super romantic and sigh-inducing. It can also be obnoxious and make you want to vomit. You know it's true. I've been single on way too many Valentine's Days to pretend otherwise.

That being said, the tradition in my family growing up was to make each other homemade Valentine's cards, and we always got a little trinket from my mom. A ring, a pretty jewelry box, just something small but special.

Once I got older, I began to feel the sting of singlehood on February 14th, but I always had that idea that Valentine's Day was not just about romantic love. It was simply about the love you have for your friends and family. So whether you're celebrating this Valentine's Day alone, with a romantic partner, with your kids or with your best friends, I have a recipe here that's for you.

And that includes you, men. I know you think I forget about you, but I don't.

I've always associated Valentine's Day with making sweets for loved ones, whether there's been a guy in my life at the time or not. I haven't had to worry about the latter for decades now though. Valentine's Day became so much more enjoyable and less demanding after having a main Valentine was a given. Now our gift to each other--and most of our other Valenines--is our party that we host every other year. It's fantastic fun and a good way to take the pressure off the couple stuff. ;-)

Great recipe line-up, Iris! Thanks and happy Valentine's Day, dear!
