Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day, and there’s no better way to show how much you care than with delicious homemade eats. And with just a few tools like heart-shaped cookie cutters, you can transform simple ingredients into adorable heart-shaped foods. All of these recipes are easy enough to whip up at home and make great options for a family fun night or romantic dinner.

These delicious Danishes are made from refrigerated crescent roll dough for an easy shortcut. Simply mold the dough into heart shapes using your hands, then add the cherry and cream cheese filling and bake. Enjoy for breakfast or as a Valentine’s Day dessert.

Give them a pizza your heart with these fun personal pizzas. Just use a large cookie cutter to cut heart shapes out of pizza dough, then add sauce, cheese and toppings. This is a great Valentine’s Day dinner to make with the kids, and you can even set up a topping bar and let everyone build their own individual pizzas.

This simple appetizer can’t be beet when it comes to a romantic dinner at home. Once you’ve roasted the beets, let them cool before slicing and using a small cookie cutter to create hearts. The combination of beets, arugula, goat cheese and honey makes for an upscale starter that pairs perfectly with a bottle of wine.

For a fresh and fruity snack, serve up this adorable dish. Watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melon are sliced into hearts using a cookie cutter, then served with a dip made from pudding mix, whipped topping and yogurt. Top with red and pink sprinkles for an extra-festive touch.

Both kids and adults will love these barbe-cute quesadillas. Simply cut hearts out of tortillas, then combine shredded rotisserie chicken, barbecue sauce and cheese. Cook each quesadilla 3-4 minutes on the stove for a tasty lunch. Plus, you can easily customize your quesadillas by adding veggies like onions or peppers, or swapping out the protein.

Comfort food makes a great option for Valentine’s Day at home, and this chicken pot pie doesn’t disappoint. To make this dish extra easy, the recipe calls for puff pastry, jarred Alfredo sauce and frozen vegetables. And to finish it off, the crust gets topped with puff pastry hearts.
