I've always thought Valentine’s Day was the worst holiday to spend alone. After all, no other day of the year quite reminds you that you’re single like February 14. But instead of moping around and curling up on the couch with Netflix this year, I’ve decided to embrace my singledom with the perfect distraction: cooking.
Let’s be clear. Eating at home on V-Day doesn’t mean resorting to Lean Cuisine or burying your face in a pint of ice cream. No, I'm talking about indulging with a bit of dignity here! So, if you’re too embarrassed to admit you’re a party of one this year, treat yourself to some low-maintenance, delicious recipes that will make you forget you’re part of the singles club.

While you're in the kitchen, be your own DJ with our Spotify playlist for all the single ladies! Because, frankly, you’re still flawless with or without a date.
If you're like me and find yourself alone for Valentine’s Day, don't settle for a depressing night in. Fall in love with food from the comfort of your own home and tag that selfie, “Eating and drinking alone tonight. #sorrynotsorry”
