Valentines Day round up – All things love!

Valentine’s Day round up is a special love edit post curated by me. Ranging mouth watering dishes from the best of appetizers to stunning mains, from positively lust inducing desserts to the perfect thirst quencher, this round up has something for everything.

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”

I can still recall the first time I went out with P. Its etched as clearly in my mind as if it happened yesterday. Its like he had me at “hello”. What followed was a whirlwind romance straight out of the heady M&B books (for the lack of a better example). Some of you might have been friends first then fallen in love. Some gotten married first, then fallen for your husbands. Whatever be your love story, be it the the first adolescent unrequited love of your dreams or the man you met when you were least looking for love, all of us have a love story. Valentine’s day is a day we choose to take a pause and celebrate that special someone in our life.

However, lets not dwell too much on bygones. Fact,  as parents of a rather boisterous 5 yr old and busy working lifestyles, romance hardly gets time in our lives. Whatever time we do get together is spent doing things. Visiting friends, going out to a movie, taking the kid out on play dates, doing chores and then the banal banter fills up the remaining time. We seldom get the time to have a real conversation anymore unless we make time for it. And that’s exactly what we need to do.  Be it Valentine’s day or just your regular weekend its a prerequisite to set time aside for love.


We are not too big on the whole roses, pink and hearts that you see social media and the shops saturated with during valentine’s season. In fact, I personally find such show of love extremely juvenile But each to his own, and hey if you are the candy, roses and hearts kinda person, good for you! You still believe in magic and probably even think Santa Claus is real. But for the rest of us more pragmatic folks, Valentine’s day is an excuse to surrender to the call of the sweet tempting desserts and those special luxurious mains that we wouldn’t bother to slave over otherwise. Now that is a celebration I cant wait to be part of!

With that thought in mind, I have compiled this round up featuring some of my fellow blogger friend’s posts. There’s tongue tickling starters, stunning mains,aphrodisiac loaded lust inducing desserts and even the perfect thirst quencher, this round up has something for everything.
