50+ Gluten-Free Valentine’s Recipes

50 plus Gluten-Free Valentine's Recipes  BoulderLocavore.com

The holiday life of a food blogger differs from those who read food blogs.  We begin early to think up fun new recipes to ring in a given holiday; cooking, and photographing our creations at times months ahead (I don’t start that early, but am creating about a month before a holiday to post for readers to have time to whip up some fun creations before the holiday hits).   As you might imagine, when the holiday actually arrives, we are onto the next thing, often leaving me stumped for ideas to celebrate ‘in real life’ as it feels I’ve already eaten through that holiday!

In addition to re-experiencing some of the fun holiday recipes I’ve whipped up on Boulder Locavore, I am fortunate to be surrounded by inspiring colleagues who create beautiful food, in the creativity of their flavors and approach, as well as their sharing of their recipes in photography.  I pulled together a little collection to share today, in the event you too are caught off guard by the arrival of Valentine’s Day and could use some inspiration!

In addition, check out my Pinterest Valentine’s Day board.  It’s full of cyber inspiration for fun food, treats and Valentines (including some great paper Fortune Cookie Valentines we are endeavoring this week at home!).

What will you be doing to celebrate your favorite Valentine(s)?

    These all look fantastic! I’ve been meaning to tell you how I wished we had a chance to get together when I was in Denver last summer. Hopefully on our next trip in the future, we can meet in person – I love what you’re doing on your site! 🙂

    We used a gift card from our kids to have our Valentine’s Day dinner at the Kitchen – as per usual, it was great. Also wanted you to know that we are building a West Boulder Living website and in the Boulder Blogs and Information Section, we link to your blog. Just getting started so come visit sometime at http://www.westboulderliving.com Cheers!

      Thanks Douglas for introducing yourself and your site. I love The Kitchen and the spirit of Kimball and Hugo. They really live the local food movement and ‘giving back’. Happy Valentine’s Day!
