Less than a week until Valentine’s Day, do you have your Valentine Day treats ready? In our house we really don’t celebrate the day in any big fashion, but my husband does have a sweet tooth so I do enjoy baking a few goodies for him. He never forgets the day and will usually make me a cute card. I’m not as artistic so I will resort to baking him a treat or two.   

One year I used an old recipe of my husband’s grandmother to make some of her famous coconut candy. It was pretty good, but the next time I make it I will use fresh coconut instead of dried. She used to spend her winters in Florida where she had a ready source of fresh coconut from her trees. The extended family still talks about how delicious her coconut candies were!

As you know I enjoy making scones, and it wasn’t long ago that I shared my Maple Oat Scones. If you enjoy scones use a heart cookie cutter to shape these Cranberry Orange Scones. They create a perfect Valentine Day treat! Plus the bits of red from the cranberries add a festive touch.

If your husband is not a fan of scones make a batch of Cranberry Vanilla Muffins. You might even have some frozen cranberries leftover in your freezer. This would be an excellent way to use them up.

Now that your husband and family are taken care of don’t forget the birds! These bird treats are simple to make and are a wonderful project to do with young children. The last time I made them the squirrels enjoyed them as much as the birds did!

Treats for the birds

I hope however you celebrate Valentine’s Day you take the time to show your husband and family how much you love them! Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Good morning, Nancy!

Cranberries and organic… yummy:) But I don’t recall ever trying a cranberry vanilla recipe…

I think you well and good inspired me to get some baking done today- those scones and muffins look like just the ticket for a rainy day win the homestead. We have been in a rut lately, if you can call it that, with popovers. Our 10 year old just mastered the recipe and can’t stop showing off her skills-

I think she’s trying to fatten us up:)

Cheers for the share!

Popovers sound like a wonderful rut to be in! 🙂
