Book Review

Valentine Treats encompasses all aspects of Valentine's Day. The content includes decorations, cards, gift tags, gifts, gift-wrapping techniques, a bookmark, candy box, bouquet wrap, tussie mussies and recipes for food and treats to complete your holiday celebration. When you are thinking about those special someone's you'd like to share Valentine's Day with you probably don't only think about the people in your life. Also included in this book are gift ideas for those four-legged friends of yours (dog bones and bathtub bribes you can make for them to eat).

Not only is there all these wonderful things to make in this book there are also articles which include information and thoughts on Valentine's Day (what it is all about and its history), tips for cooking with kids, art box basics, tips for crafting with kids, around the house supplies, the language of flowers, tips for love among the roses and tips for rolled cookies). I like the way many of the foods (Valentine sugar cookies, Heart and flower snacks and daisies, Sweetheart scones, Morning eggs in heart frames, Soft-cooked eggs with butter-toasted hearts, Pitter patter pancakes, Filet mignon with four butters and Bergamot panna cotta) are made in a heart shape to celebrate Valentine's Day.

I like the way each chapter is preceded by a description of the projects that are contained in the following pages and I also like the brief, personal introduction to the instructions for each of the crafts and recipes in this book. The instructions for the crafts and the recipes are detailed and easy to follow and some of the recipes include variations (i.e. the Valentine Sugar Cookies can be flavored or the recipe changed slightly to make Razzle Dazzle Hearts, Chocolate Almond Sugar Hearts or Cinnamon Candy Sugar Hearts). Valentine Treats is a great resource for planning a complete Valentine's Day celebration involving the whole family in the preparations.

Favorites:

  • Say-it-with-hearts valentine card
  • Beaded champagne flutes for two
  • Burst-a-bubble painted paper
  • Sweetheart candy box
  • "It's a frame-up" memory tray
  • Sparkling fortune cookies
  • Angel meringue cake
  • Chocolate-filled scones

5/5
