Who said that Valentine’s Day is only for couples?
It’s the most romantic day of the year, and many people are looking for ways to make the day speacial. This means that Valentine’s Day is a fantastic opportunity for food, or lifestyle bloggers looking to offer some fresh ideas. Luckily, there are many recipe ideas you can cover to put a fresh new twist on an old classic. Have a little bit of fun experimenting with recipes, and your audience will be hooked for more!
Obviously, heart-shaped anything (or heart-shaped everything) is going to be a winner, as will pink or red foods, but don’t be afraid to stray from the traditional and offer up something a little more unique. This can be a great time to create some brand new recipes for people, particularly if you’re offering things for a variety of dietary needs, think gluten-free, sugar-free, paleo, etc.
This can also be a great time to repurpose older content with round-up posts, or showcasing some of your older recipes. Don’t forget that this is also a key time to make sure that your titles are doing the heavy lifting for you.
Beyond A Day For Two
Who said that Valentine’s Day is only for couples? Moms with young families or Dads looking to do something special for their other halves might want to involve the kids in the Valentine’s Day fun. Searches will be abound for Valentine’s day crafts, Valentine themed family dinners, and even Toddler Valentine Treats. Think about recipes that are suitable for the whole family to make together, or that allow the kids to show off their favorite skills.
The trick is to make sure that you specify easy, little-finger friendly recipes. You can even choose to go the healthy route, by offering fruit and vegetable recipes that incorporate the heart theme but won’t overload kids on sugar.
Some great family friendly recipes you could offer:
Heart-shaped Sugar Cookies
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Heart-shaped Fruit Salad with Strawberries and Watermelon
Serving up some Romance
When it comes to making the most of Valentine’s Day search traffic, you’ll find that some of the best recipes you can provide will be the ones for couples.

That being said, offering easy and uncomplicated recipes is a great way to show people that you don’t have to be a Masterchef contestant to serve up a plate of love. Some examples include, steak for two, Italian recipes for two,
