A Little Romance...

As you might have realized.. it is Valentine's Day this Sunday, February 14th. A wonderful opportunity to cook or bake for the one(s) you love.
Not in a steamy hot romance at the moment? That's okay.

While it is lovely to be able to celebrate one's undying love... or what-have-you.. you don't necessarily have to be part of a couple to celebrate Valentine's Day.

So, before you go telling me that romance is dead or that Valentine's Day is a Hallmark holiday meant to drain the pockets of the vulnerable...

Consider that you have the ability to make of it what you wish.
Dining by candlelight is good for the soul.

Romantic music, bubble baths.. maybe you dream of this guy.

Or maybe your favourite Valentine is a puppy.

Even better, this guy WITH a puppy!

Or maybe you just prefer to celebrate by yourself.

Find a Romantic Nigella recipe - either in one of her books or online - and post it by February 14th, then link up to Mr. Linky so that we can all share in your delicious dishes!

Link your I Heart Cooking Clubs post of the week's permalink with Mr. Linky, below, so we can all see your fabulous cooking club creations! Please leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Did you get those pictures of Clooney from Donna :D

Just put up my heart shaped granola muffins. They might be one of my favorite Nigella recipes so far, but then again I really love granola.

I am feeling more romantic already!
Caramelized Pineapple with Hot Chocolate Sauce over at my place!

I just posted Bourbon ribs and spoon bread...romantic, get it? Bones and spooning. Alright that was uncalled for :-) From Nigella's Christmas book.

I made Nigella's "Anglo-Italian Trifle" and it is delicious. It was perfect for Valentine's Day! Thanks for the 'sweet' challenge this week! Ciao, Roz
