5 on Friday: Oh-So-Adorable Foodie Valentines

February 7, 2014 | By | Comments (1)

Each Friday, we share five things that are getting buzz around the Cooking Light offices—from what we’re reading around the Web, to what’s hot on Instagram, or even our latest favorite ingredient.

I am a sucker for Valentine’s cards. In elementary school, I looked forward to the day we could bring our beautifully-wrapped shoe boxes to class, wait as each person slipped a valentine into the adorned boxes, and then dig in to see all the cards and candy and cuteness. I’m a year from entering my 30s, and I haven’t had a valentine in quite some time, but I look forward to the holiday of hearts and happiness each year.

If passing out Valentine’s Day cards were workplace-appropriate (we have rules about these things, you know), each and every co-worker would be greeted by an adorably decorated pun-filled card. Instead, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite food pun Valentine’s cards. I donut much, but I know I love them.

minted you're a peach classroom valentine's day card

you’re a peach classroom valentine’s day from minted.com | These petite cards are 2.5″ x 3.5″, so they’re too small to mail but perfect for classrooms and colleagues. Another favorite: You’re the Cheese to My Macaroni. Order soon if you want these to arrive by the 13th.
