Valentine's Day Recipes
If you're donning your chef's hat this Valentine's Day and cooking your Valentine a romantic dinner then you are in for a treat. Romantic home-cooked dinners are one of the best ways to show your sweetie how much you love them and also show off a bit of your cooking skills. Valentine's Day recipes are not difficult to find and can actually be quite easy to make, but here are a few key ingredients that you should look for in any Valentine's Day recipes that have been proven to put your lover in the mood for a more relaxed and romantic evening.
- Avocados: Not just the best fruit around, these babies are chock full of essential vitamins and good fats. More than that their seductively perfect shape puts some people in mind of a woman's curved figure while the slippery smooth feel of them in your mouth is enough to make any person go wild. If you can't find a Valentine's Day recipe that includes these then cut them into huge wedges, remove the skin, and throw them into a salad. Or you can use them as an appetizer by cutting them into halves or slices and then sprinkling them with lemon or lime juice and salt and pepper.
- Chocolate: No lie, chocolate is truly one of the perfect foods. You can use this for your dessert, just find a Valentine's Day recipe that utilizes chocolate as the main ingredient or as a garnish (though the main ingredient is usually best). If you can't find a recipe that suits you, then open up a box of fine chocolates to share with a good cup of coffee or hot tea.
- Asparagus: Used by the ancients to awaken passion in a man and woman, asparagus is quite good when broiled with butter or olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper. There are plenty of other Valentine's Day recipes out there that involve asparagus, so don't feel that you have only one choice of preparation.
With these secret key ingredients in mind while choosing your Valentine's Day recipes, you should have the best Valentine's Day dinner of your life. Pair that lovely meal with a Valentine's Day card and some gifts and you've got yourself a wonderful day!
