Valentine's Day doesn't have to be purely about romance; rather, it can be a great opportunity to teach your children to celebrate love in all its shapes and sizes. And what better way to show love than to cook a nourishing meal together? Here's a Valentine's menu that's sure to please the whole family.
Make this cocktail kid-friendly by replacing orange-flavoured liqueur with orange juice and sparkling wine with fizzy soda water or gingerale.
Cheesy, creamy broccoli soup is a family-friendly dish that's a great way to get kids to eat their veggies. The crispy Cheddar croutons add a satisfying crunch. For a lighter finish, replace the sour cream with Greek yogurt.
Bone-in skin-on chicken thighs are a bargain at the grocery store, plus they're so much juicier than boneless thighs or breasts. The kids will love it!

We show you how easy it is to get breakfast on the table when you start with our overnight steel-cut oatmeal. The best part? We have both sweet and savoury topping options so you can satisfy any morning craving.
Poaching an egg isn't as difficult as you may think. The trick is to keep the water at a gentle simmer and give it a good stir before you add the egg. Look for small ham steaks alongside bacon in the supermarket, or use up leftover cooked ham.
Mourning the end of summer break? Let this sunny breakfast cheer you up. Macadamia nuts add filling protein and extra tropical flavour, but any kind of nut will do.
This hearty bowl is like comfort food, squared. To make this diner-inspired brekkie meatless, substitute a fried egg for the sausage.
This combination of flavours is a little out there, but trust us—you'll want this dish for both breakfast and dinner. The chili pepper plays superbly against the sweet coconut chips and the creamy peanut butter, giving you the ultimate sweet and savoury fix.
Consider this the warm hug of breakfast foods. We prefer Gala apples over other varieties because they hold their shape when cooked, but any type will work.
