A gesture that says "I love you" can be better than a gift, just what you need to give your relationship a lift. A teddy bear won't win her heart, and a box of chocolates seems like a cliche start.

Fire up your ovens, get your whisks ready because these recipes will make your Valentine's Day go smooth and steady. If you're single and can't find anyone true, don't worry because that's more dessert for you!
