Get your "cook mode" on this Valentine's day with our recipes

Sheryl Thomas

And it’s almost time for Valentine’s day. The most loved day is just around the corner. And we can’t wait to share with you some of the ideas that we tried out at The Happiness Factory. It’s no surprise that it is going to be about cooking recipes and having loads of fun. I’m sure most of you plan on having a nice little date at a cozy restaurant, cherishing some of your favourite food over light-hearted conversations...Ahhh! I’m a sucker for this too (My time on Earth has absolutely spoiled me. Tehehehe!). But this time, we thought, how about you cook a happy meal for you and your beau and enjoy the quality time at home? Not so impressed eh? But you are gonna love reading the recipes. It was a whole load of fun trying out these recipes at The Happiness Factory with some major help from our new member, Green and of course, Pixie. We were running everywhere, trying to get things done and I can’t believe at the end of the day, we actually DID IT! Now go ahead and read about our favourite valentine’s recipes from our very own kitchen. 


  • Hug and Heart Cookies
  • What’s valentine’s without love and hugs? And it’s best done when it’s in the form of cookies. Also, you can play a nice game of tic-tac-toe (or) who-eats-the-most-cookies. And if you are thinking who is going to win it, remember, Love always wins!
