Homemade Valentine’s Day Dinner prepared by us ^_^!

For Valentine’s day, my bf and I decided to cook a homemade Valentine’s Day dinner. We quickly looked up a pasta recipe the day before and we chose the Garlicy Penne Pasta. Cooking together made it quick and fun. With our dinner, we toasted some store bought garlic bread which was a perfect addition to the pasta. We also had some dessert wine with our dinner which made it that much more romantic and felt like we were having a night out town to a fancy restaurant.

I love food and taking pictures of them and consider myself to be a big foodie! My favorite meal of the day is breakfast since it's full of delicious items such as pancakes, waffles, bacon, and french toast. Coffee is a must for the morning because of the wonderful aroma and the taste. I love dark chocolates, but I like to have an occasional milk or white chocolate.
