Fun Heart-Shaped Foods

So, it seems as though there are a million ideas out there for cute & yummy treats around Valentine's Day--like the Valentine's truffles & strawberry cake I made
But, throughout the day, we can't just be eating sweet treats. So, here's a round up of some adorable heart-shaped food ideas that can be used for the WHOLE day--not just a Valentine's dessert!
Breakfast:
Why not start the day with these raspberry pancake-crepes? They look soooo good!  
Or, I bet the kiddos would LOVE these love notes in a pancake! Maybe with some yummy strawberry sauce drizzled on top?  
If pancakes aren't your thing, you could make some heart-shaped toast or heart-shaped eggs in a nest!  



Snacks:
Make some of these healthy heartbeet cookies with the kiddos!
Or, make some super cute heart apples!

Lunch/Dinner:
We all know that many pizza places make heart-shaped pizzas for Valentine's day (and some try to make a heart-shaped pie themselves. But, had you thought to just make a regular pizza with some heart-shaped pepperonis? So cute!! 
Or, if you don't go the pizza route, maybe a side of hot-pink rice would be fun!!
Such great ideas! I think some of them would be fun to do for an anniversary too!

Do YOU make anything special for Valentine's Day? Please share or leave a link in the comments!
