I can’t believe it’s already the beginning of February, but I’m definitely looking forward to a certain pink-and-red-themed holiday on the fourteenth that celebrates la vie en rose. Of course food is one of the most important pieces of any holiday tradition, so I thought I would share some orange, pink, and purple desserts that caught my eye recently. These Valentine’s Day desserts have certainly brought some color into my dreary February day, so I’m looking forward to choosing one (or two) to bring to life in the kitchen next Sunday!
