Three years ago I planned a Trim Healthy Mama Valentine's Day celebration for our family (the blog post is here). We had Cheeseburger Pie, salad, cheesecake with strawberry sauce, heart-shaped chocolates, and skinny chocolate-dipped strawberries (all recipes from the book). It was a delicious and healthy meal that even my kids enjoyed.
This year I'm planning something similar for our Valentine's meal. We're planning to use the cheesecake recipe from the new Trim Healthy Mama cookbook, and my daughters are hoping to make chocolate-dipped strawberries again (with skinny chocolate).
If you don't have the new cookbook or you're looking for more Valentine's meal inspiration, here are a few recipes that would be delicious for the occasion!

Every year my children look forward to getting out our felt Valentine holders that attach to the backs of our chairs at the kitchen table. This was a super simple craft that I never imagined would be so popular with my family.
I used red felt for the boys' pockets and pink for the girls' and I just used an assortment of ribbon, lace, and other embellishments that I had on hand.
This is our third year to use them and they're still in great shape!
I love finding little "love notes" from my children in my pocket. ♥
