Hello and welcome to this thing we’re doing where we help you figure out what you’re gonna put in your mouth this week. Some of these are recipes we’ve tried, some of these are recipes we’re looking forward to trying, all of them are fucking delicious. Tell us what you want to put in your piehole or suggest your own recipes, and we’ll talk about which things we made, which things we loved, and which things have changed us irreversibly as people. Most recently, we got crazy with oodles of noodles.
Oh is it almost VALENTINE’S DAY?? I hadn’t noticed. Certainly haven’t been pinning Valentine’s Day foods for the past month with Carmen, gearing up for this post. Definitely haven’t been planning a series of Valentine’s Day menus for my own personal use, categorized by cost and skill level. Nope. Haven’t been looking forward to this for several weeks at all. I don’t know what you’re talking about.
If you happen to be in the market for 45 Valentine’s Day foods — including a few throwbacks to some previous Autostraddle Valentine’s snacks and — look no further! And don’t forget about our extremely thorough Gay Girl’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide and the amazing Valentine’s Day Craft and Decor Grab Bag!

stef made them and they looked AMAZING. i think she said her cat ate a lot of the frosting too, so that’s probably an endorsement.

Those heart beets are the cutest.
laneia do you think i could make a heart shaped quesadilla
I am not laneia, but I have no doubt that you can make the quesadilla your heart desires.
YES PROBABLY I DON’T SEE WHY NOT !!!
my girlfriend’s birthday is on valentine’s day and so there is always double the celebratory pressure! and i have not even thought about food yet for this year! so this will def help my planning for birthentines day. but what i really need are these menu plans…any winning ideas for dinner? i guess we could just eat love birds cookies for dinner because what could be cuter?
i love you too laneia
if you need me i’ll just be over here whispering “wine gummies” to myself
I think I need to call in sick this week and find a chef who will want to make these with me.
Also, no valentines heart shaped pizza, sandwiches, or tacos?
These are so cute!
Oh, god, I’m so alone.
Ugh, these all look so amazing and make me depressed I don’t have a special someone to make them for/with !
I made that gin cocktail (#27) for my sweetie and am back to report that it is delicious!
Little Heart Beets so cute. I’ll be make it for my GF . haha
