I’m not the huge fan of Valentines Day. Now I’m not saying I’m going to wear all black tomorrow, but I just don’t need a card or roses or a heart shaped box of chocolates to feel loved on this random day. But, if you want to show someone you care in a genuine way, cook for them. Here are two recipes, a dessert and a dinner (in order of importance), that are perfect for your sweetie.
Can’t get more Valentiney than red velvet cupcakes. Tiny little bundles of love, these guys.
And if you don’t want to just eat dessert, then you can make this amazing fish recipe from Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin (fancy fish restaurant in NYC). It has the most amazing mushrooms and a rich port sauce that take a light white fish and make it a little more romantic and special. At first I was a little surprised by a wine sauce and mushrooms with fish, but it definitely works (shouldn’t doubt a super chef I guess). So happy Valentines day to those of you who care, and happy Monday for those of you who don’t. Either way, you’ll love these recipes!
