There’s still time to make something special for Valentine’s Day, even if you’re a non-cook. Here are two sure-to-please ideas.

Start with breakfast: Make strawberry or raspberry cream cheese for the morning toast’s or bagels. You can also use it for tea sandwiches.

    CRAFT BEER

    Some people would trade all the chocolate in the world for a good beer.

    It you know such a person, take a look at the style of beer in the fridge—Belgian ale, IPA, lager, pilsner, etc. (here are the different types of beer).

    Then, head to the market with the largest supply of craft beer and pick up four different brands in the same style.

    If you want to make it a beer-and-cheese pairing, here are the cheeses that go with beer.

    Toast to a happy Valentine’s Day.
