Anyone have Valentine’s Day plans yet? Galentine’s Day? 

I’ll be honest, we usually have a quiet night in. I can’t even say that do something special at home. Sometimes I’ll make a fancier dinner for two – like Jerk Scallops with Pineapple Salsa over Coconut Rice – and sometimes the kids and I will make a festive sweet to have in the house (these Valentine’s Day Blondies are one of the kids favorites), but usually keep it pretty low key around here. 

French Martini While I don’t have a tradition for the sweet holiday, I do enjoy getting a little festive when I have time. So whether you’re planning a Valentine or Galentine event, or just want some inspiration, we’ve got you covered.
