Hi Danica! I plan to make reservations at Lake Chalet on Lake Merrit in Oakland. They have an amazing raw bar that is calling my name!
I have bought these in the past and they are AWESOME! I would love to win a box! I plan on having a nice quiet evening at home with my husband for Valentines Day. I am going to make us a nice steak and bake!
Just tweeted about the contest!
My office mate Rochelle shoudl be entering too–cause I told her about this fabulous giveaway.
Yum! I’m in and will now go Tweet!
I am hoping to make my husband’s favorite dish for Valentine’s day – It’s Moroccan Fish B’stilla. It’s so yummy and I made it for our anniversary. He loves it but it is a LABOR OF LOVE, bc it’s rather involved, so it’s totally a special occasion kind of dish.
Since my birthday is the next day, I’m thinking I’d like to go out to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse & have a petite filet & some spinach!
Going off to FB & post on my blog!
ps… if you’re interested in the recipe, let me know – I got it to where it’s only 5-7 p+/serving.

Nothing beats chocolate covered Strawberries so I will be making a BIG Batch for my Kids for when they get home from school. Hubs & I are planning to go out w/our Little girl somewhere to eat I am hoping we go to this new little place that just opened that has loads of yummy fruit creations.. I said that sounds like the place for me! O pts. baby! Ha
Just Tweeted about it on @Elliesworld 🙂 Thanks for the chance!
It’s my tradition to treat myself to some Ferrero Rocher’s (aka the BEST chocolate ever made). I wouldn’t mind getting a ‘whack-and-unwrap’ chocolate orange though – they are IMPOSSIBLE to find here!!
I plan on cooking at home for Valentine’s Day to save money. I’d love to make a lemon flavored chicken or fish with a vegetable and rice pilaf.

I am spending Valentine’s Day with the most important person in my life – my 7 year old son, Tate, who inspires me every day to eat healthy and exercise so I have a long healthy life with him! Up until January, I used my oven for sweater storage so cooking is very new to me…he encourages me and tells me the food “isn’t so bad for a beginner”. We will be enjoying turkey black bean enchiladas!!
We love to buy fresh strawberries and dip in chocolate pudding! A little lighter than other chocolate at least!
just tweeted about the giveaway!
telling my friend about this!
My BF and I are spending the weekend at a cottage in the woods. Plan on making him a lovely home cooked meal!
Amanda (Eating Up) says
I already bought those SweeTarts V-Day hearts…and ate them. They remind me of my childhood. My mom used to buy them every Feb and I had to get a box for nostalgic purposes.
I’m going to make something from Danica’s past recipes. They’re all so good I will have to chose wisely. Something that goes with ice cream!
Posted on my status on FB too!
Those look so delicious!! This V-day, we’re planning on going out to buy some wine with dinner 🙂 Preferably red, to accompany some fresh baked gourmet pizza. Some dessert wouldn’t hurt either 😉
we’ll probably do sushi for Valentine’s Day. I LOVE sushi.
My birthday, our anniversary, and Valentine’s Day are all within 10 days of each other. Lucky Dan, lol!
I plan on taking Andy out for dinner on Valentine’s Day (well actually over the weekend.) We’re thinking either Roy’s or Ruth Chris!
Oh yummy! I plan on doing chocolate bowls with a bit of fat free/sugar free vanilla pudding and fresh fruit!
I don’t have a blog but I have told my sister about your site and the giveaway 🙂
The hubby and I will be going to dinner over the weekend. Then on the 14th, I will make dinner for the whole family along with some fresh baked cupcakes.
Lauren at KeepItSweet says
I still haven’t decided but I must bake something with chocolate:-) There will definitely be some good wine involved in the meal!
Those look SO yummy. The hubbin’ and I plan on going for Sushi on Saturday before Valentine’s day. I love that Sushi is healthy but still a special treat!
I was thinking of making chocolate covered strawberries but now I am thinking if I win the mini icecream treats I will make a sundae or banana split, top them with banana’s strawberries, a little carmel sauce and a cherry on top. Got to take advantage of 0 pts+ fruit!! I will be telling my WW coworkers about the giveaway.

this valentines day my fiance and i plan to BUY a delicious dinner out somewhere in st. louis – we don’t know where yet though!
i would also like to make a strawberry cheesecake, but i’m not sure if i trust my skills enough for our valentines dessert!
I will be celebrating by putting raisins on my oatmeal in the shape of a heart. I know it’s cheesy- but I did it last year for the boyfriend and I think it might become a tradition 🙂
I plan to buy some Godiva chocolate for myself!
well…I guess I know now what I am going to get when the Schwans man shows at my door tonight! haha Thanks! I am planning on making a lightened up version of a flourless cake…hopefully it comes out good!
for valentines day i plan on making heart shaped pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream for the boys i work with at an adolescent group home, then i plan to go out for sushi with my BF, i am looking forward to the rasheeda roll (shrimp tempura tuna rolled with rice with avocado on top!) then i plan to have a chocolate fondu dessert with dip in 0p+ FRUIT!!!!!! i don’t have Facebook or twitter, but i texted my friend michelle about this contest. I don’t have a blog, but i told my friend erica from weight watchers about this contest.
Ruby W. says
Couples massage for me and the boy and afterwards reservation for dinner. Is it weird that I did all the V-day planning?
Ruby W. says
I don’t have a blog, but I did tell my sista about this wonderful sweet giveaway.
We are staying home all weekend and cooking at home..no eating out. Healthy weight watchers friendly breakfast lunch and dinner the weekend before valentines day. and for valentines day since i work that night we will celebrate sunday with steak and bbq’d crab legs.!!!
I seen this giveaway on facebook!
I’m anticipating some See’s from my fella– even more special now that we’re no longer in CA! Lucky me, he knows all my favorites. 😉
Dawn Duffy says
Hi Danica! For Valentine’s Day I am making the WW Coconut Shrimp recipe that you shared last week. My husband and I can’t wait to try it. For dessert, I’m thinking of melting some dark chocolate to make a fruit fondue – strawberries, raspberries, apple chunks, etc.
DH and I also have our wedding anniversary at the same time as Valentine Day. We’ll have a special meal of filet mignon, the freshest vegetables the farmers market has that day, and a Trader Joe dark chocolate bar (or maybe these special Swann’s treats?). We’ll probably drink most of a bottle of California sparkling wine a.k.a champagne. DH is the best Weight Watcher supporter in the world, and I couldn’t get through a day without him. I’m a lucky woman.
J. @ MyYearToThrive says
Being single, I will probably take myself out for sushi:~)

I plan to make chocolate lava cakes
I don’t have a blog, but I told my mom about your giveaway.
I’m making something with chocolate and peanut butter, but I haven’t quite decided yet. Fiance loves that combo!
I’m thinking chicken parm for the hubbie. It was what I made for him on our first valentine’s day together. And since I get all of those awesome extra points+ for breastfeeding, I’ll get to eat it right along with him!
We just made reservations at a French restaurant I’ve been dying to try for months. I can’t wait to have crepes for the first time on Valentines Day! 🙂
I am going to cook for my wonderful family, probably bbq if the weather is nice!
I always make a special meal for my family (just dh and dd) for Val day. One year I made heart shaped meatballs and spaghetti, then we had chocolate fondue, last year we all made heart shaped pizzas together… still fondue for afterwards, it is now sort of a tradition. Not sure what I’ll be cooking this year but there’ll definitely be fondue (with more fruit than choccy for me) 😉
Cait Titus says
I wasn’t able to make sugar cookies this christmas but I realllly want to make some heart shaped ones 🙂 OORRR RED VELVET CUPCAKES the weight watcher recipe looks purrrfect!

I’ve been meaning to try these. For Valentine’s Day I will take my 13 year old son out to dinner…unless he has a date. LOL!
red velvet cupcakes all the way!
We are going to go to Biaggi’s for some delicious pasta. I love the chicken farfalle and their banana fosters are to die for. We could definitely use these yummy chocolate treats to get back on track after our yummy dinner out! Thanks!
Lisa Ashby says
I saw a recipe for chocolate cupcakes with flaming strawberries on top, so I’m thinking of making these for Valentine’s Day. But with pumpkin – points-friendly, ya know? 🙂
Carol Belles says
Steak, baked potato and salad. Maybe chocolate cake for dessert. Love the blog!!
Those look heavenly! I’m planning on starting the day off with one of those dirty lattes. Never heard of it before reading your blog and it sounds delicious.
Me and most of my best girlfriends are all single this Valentine’s Day, so we’re having a “Singles Party” to celebrate 😀 We’re going with a red theme and are going to be making red velvet cupcakes, buying strawberries, cherries, tomatoes and red bell peppers for appetizers…and drinking plenty of red wine 😉
I plan to buy some chocoalte covered pretzels for the people who work in my college cafeteria, to show them that I appreciate all they do.
Probably going to make some sugar cookies or chocolate chip cookies with the madre or BF 🙂
Tara K. says

Holly Ashmore says
hey, just found your website by googling for a weight watchers blog. Looks incredible. Im excited about my new weight watchers journey. For valentines day we will stay home for surf and turf.
My husband and I like to avoid the crowds at all the restaurants and so we make a delicious dinner together at home. I am going to attempt to make a cheese cake for him as that is his favourite dessert!!

Since I am Valentine-less this year, I was planning on going to the movies with my siblings to watch Gnomeo and Juliet! The previews look so adorable! And then we might go to Kona Grill for dinner because we all love the food there. Its not everyday that we get to go out so I think we’re going to just go out and eat instead of staying home and cook ;]
I plan to buy my hubby a baby red velvet bundt cake because it is his very favorite kind of cake. I think I will have a bite!
