Valentine's Day Elegance

Valentine's Day can be a real challenge. Restaurants often raise their prices and require reservations, leaving those who might be inclined to take their sweetheart out for a night on the town in a bind. Who wants to overpay when it's just one night out of the year? You could go the next night and save big, allowing for twice as much celebration! If you do that you might also want to do something on the 14th to mark the occasion. Fortunately, there are lots of recipes you can whip up to show you care! Here are some pretty desserts that require no skill whatsoever to make, from the Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Cook Book (1959) with a bonus for Washington's birthday!

Here's the recipe for French Pastries, just in case you're inclined to make Washington Pie:

Staying home and saving a few dollars is even more pleasant with a couple of bottles of wine. That just happens to be what's included in the Strawberry Punch from Anchor Hocking's Party Starter Punch Recipe Book

Here's to love!
