From sweet desserts to a savory main course, these rosy bites will help fill your V-Day soiree with a whole lotta love (and color). Let’s get glowing!

1. Frozen Pink Cheesecake: Add this no-sugar, no-butter and flourless fruity cheesecake to your Valentine’s Day recipe queue, stat. (via Green Kitchen Stories)

2. Blondie Cupcakes With Raspberry Buttercream: White-chocolate-studded cupcakes are a fabulous base for the swirl of fresh raspberry buttercream piped on top. (via Call Me Cupcake)

3. Raspberry Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches (Vegan, Gluten-Free): It may be freezing out, but these almost-raw ice cream sandwiches are hard to resist. With their fudgy and oh-so creamy texture, you’ll have to remind yourself that these are actually dairy-free. (via Bojon Gourmet)

4. Homemade Raspberry White Chocolate Creme Soda: Stick two straws in one soda and enjoy sipping it with your sweetie for a little soda fountain romance. (via Hello Natural)

5. Grapefruit Possets: A crumble of pistachios and buttery Ritz crackers offer a lovely textural contrast to the creamy, tangy custard underneath. (via La Pêche Fraîche)

6. Ombre Pink Lemonade Courtesan au Chocolat: Each of these choux pastry puffs is filled with either strawberry chia curd or chocolate custard. Stack ’em up high for a sweet ombre effect. (via Will Frolic for Food)

7. Blush and Bashful Marshmallows: Enjoy the layered berry flavor of these fluffy ‘mallows. Blackberry puree creates a deep pink base while a blend of strawberries and raspberries tint the other layer a more subtle shade. (via Treats)

13. Rosé Sorbet: You only need two ingredients and a little mint for garnish to make this boozy sorbet. (via How Sweet It Is)

14. Raspberry Palmiers: Nibble on these flaky, buttery, fruity cookies with ice cream, tea, coffee or by their lonesome. The best part: They’re super easy to make, but look like they take hours of effort. (via Palachinka)

15. Linguine With Blushing Gorgonzola Cream Sauce: Let’s wrap things up on a savory note. Adding tomatoes to a mix of cream and blue cheese makes for a pretty pink sauce that coats every twirl of pasta gorgeously. (via Apples and Sparkle)
