I'm not normally all that excited about Valentine's day. It makes a lot of perfectly nice people feel as if they're missing out on something. Plus there aren't nearly enough chainsaws in Valentine movies. (There are plenty of horror movies I can watch over and over, but My Bloody Valentine, while fine, is not such a classic.)
I happened across this picture in Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers: New Holiday Cookbook (1974), though, and decided to make a Valentine's post:
If you thought these looked like meringue hearts, you were right. If you thought they were probably filled with a pink, berry-laden fluff and maybe some nice jam on top, you are only half right.
The filling is actually green because they're made with avocado! Top it with some red raspberry preserves, and you've got zombie hearts for Valentine's day. That is more my style.
Maybe the real surprise is finding red and green desserts that aren't in the Christmas section. Zombies have been known to wander.
