Valentine’s Day is not reserved only for couples and romantics. Anyone can have fun preparing a fast and easy meal for starting the day off with a tug of the heart. Whether it’s for your kids or your parents, your significant other or your best friend, or your niece, cousin, or grandmother – these simple ideas are easy to do and send a gesture of love right to the heart!

Heart-shaped cookie cutters come in all sizes and can be found in baking or seasonal departments. As you’ll see here, tiny cutters can be used for cutting toast croutons for soups, vegetables for salads, or pepperoni and pepper slices for homemade pizzas! When my sons were toddlers I used my large heart-shaped cookie cutter to make heart toast (with red jam or jelly of course!) and sandwiches for lunchtime. I hope you feel inspired by these ideas. Best wishes for a heart-warming day!

    Love the heart shaped grilled cheese….my babies love grilled cheese. I know what we are having for supper tonight!

      Hooray! Heart-shaped grilled cheese for the wee ones 😀 So adorable, and healthy too. My lads loved those when they were little. Heck what am I saying? They still love them, only now I’d need most of a loaf to feed them!

    This was such a fun post and I am goofy enough to do all of those. Loved them.
