Enjoy these local treats on Valentine’s Day
By Jillian Amodio
Sweet treats are a favorite to give and receive on Valentine’s Day. This year, whether you want to go traditional, or try something a bit more unexpected like breakable treat filled hearts, or PYO (paint your own) cookie valentines, local bakeries have you covered.
For those with dietary restrictions, finding items that are suitable for safe consumption, including gluten-free items can be a challenge. Fortunately many bakeries have kept this in mind, among those offering items that are gluten-free are Blue Crab Cupcakes, D&J Bakery, and Sweethearts Patisserie.
When choosing treats for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day, be sure to grab a little something for the most important person in your life as well . . . You!
