the valentine’s wild side


Valentine’s Day is a chance for you to show how much you care. And, there’s no better way to communicate ‘love’ than through food. This love interest can be a special someone or ‘someoneS’ as in plural. Yes, it could be a V-Day dinner you host for girlfriends, friends, couples, or your family!

I’ve gathered together some my favorite recipes that I adore! These ideas for ‘Sweet Nibbles’, ‘Sexxy Salads’ and ‘Exquisite Entrees’ are easy and sure to please.  Yes, cards, boxed chocolates and flowers are ‘alright’~safe and, actually border on boring and predictable. Why not take a walk on the ‘wild side’ this Valentine’s Day and share your heart with food and a divine dinner!
