The Perfect Valentine’s Day Menu for Families

Planning a menu for your family is hard - but thanks to Catherine McCord it doesn’t have to be! The Weelicious founder has a Valentine's themed recipe for every meal of the day that the whole family will enjoy.


Valentine Strawberry Heart Pancakes


  • 1 large egg

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 6 large strawberries, cored, sliced lengthwise into 4-5 pieces to resemble hearts


1. Whisk the egg, buttermilk and oil in a large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.

4. Heat a large pan or griddle over medium heat and grease with butter or oil.

5. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the pancake mixture onto the griddle, gently press a strawberry slice onto the top and cook for 2 minutes.

6. Flip the pancakes and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.

Note: If you do not have buttermilk you can make it by adding 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. This mix also works beautifully with any type of milk you prefer!


Heart Pizzettes


  • 1 pound pizza dough, room temperature

  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce

  • 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese


1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and lightly grease with cooking spray.

3. Sprinkle a little flour on your work surface and use a rolling pin to roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thick.

4. Using a 4-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out the dough and place onto baking tray.

5. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of pizza sauce onto dough leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edge. Sprinkle with cheese and place any additional toppings on top.
