Valentine's Day is right around the corner (for those of you who have lost track of time, it's THIS Sunday). While chocolates and flowers may be the norm this time of year, we're here to shake things up a bit with fabulous honey recipes that will show your honey just how sweet you are on them!

If you're looking to really wow your sweetheart this year, why not start with breakfast in bed? With its all-natural sweetness, honey is the perfect ingredient for a sweet morning meal. On this occasion, we recommend our beautiful and delicious Strawberry Crêpes with Honey Suzette Sauce.

Now, what would the holiday of love be without a little pampering? Well you may not know that in addition to being a delicious culinary ingredient, honey also has humectant properties that draw in and retain moisture, leaving skin soft and smooth. Your honey will be sweet on you when you give them a gift made with love, like a Honey Grapefruit Salt Scrub followed up with a delicious smelling Honey Mocha Mint Body Polish (note: as good as these products smell, please do not eat them, we have plenty of other delicious honey recipes for that).

When it comes to Valentine's Day, it's all about the romantic dinner, and we've got just what you need to make your home feel like a 5-star restaurant. Set the mood however you choose, we've got a three-course menu coming your way! We're going to start off the evening with delicious Broiled Scallops with Honey-Lime Marinade, followed by a mouthwatering Chilled Poached Salmon Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dressing. The night is not complete without dessert and cocktails, so mix up a batch of our Chocolate Strawberry for my Honey and cozy up with some Honey White Chocolate Fondue.

From breakfast to cocktails, and everything in between, honey is all you need to show someone how much you love them. Be sweet on your honey, and happy Valentine's Day!
