    I'm staying basic for Valentine's Day and just backed some heart shaped cookies (actually the recipe was for Christmas cookies but I loved it sooo much!!) I've rounded up a couple of recipes on my blog (including the said cookie recipe) that you can find here: http://aspectsofstyle.com/2015/02/08/valentine-baking-inspiration/
