Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is a tricky holiday.  If you’re single you likely hate it and if you’re in a relationship you, well, probably also hate it for being too commercial or for stressing you out.  It doesn’t have to be that way, however.  You can be original.  You don’t have to buy red roses a card and heart-shaped box of chocolate.  You can show someone you care in more creative ways.  Here are a few:

  • Instead of roses, get a bouquet of chocolate covered strawberries
  • Cook a meal at home instead of going out for an overpriced, special menu at a restaurant
  • Make a champagne and dessert date.  Two easy and elegant desserts to share are Molten Chocolate Cake or Poached Pears
  • Instead of a fancy dinner, take your loved one to their favorite place
  • Sign up for something you can do together- cooking classes.  Many restaurants offer classes as well as culinary schools.  Take a pizza class or pasta making class and share the meal you created together with a glass of wine
  • Buy a red KitchenAid stand mixer– seriously a must-have for any cook’s kitchen
  • Build her a backyard wood-fired pizza oven ; ) (hint hint)
