Valentine's Day Recipes
"Celebrate Valentine's Day with a romantic dinner for two!"
Valentine's Day is named in honor of Saint Valentine, who lived during the Roman times. There is a belief that when Valentine died, he left a note to his jail keeper's daughter which was signed, "Your Valentine." People have been sending similar messages to their loved ones since then.
It's the time of year to celebrate romance again. Actually, it's always the time of year to celebrate romance, but this is the time that society, at the prodding of greeting card and chocolate manufacturers, sets aside especially for such amorous festivities.
These Valentine's Day recipes are a perfect way to celebrate a special relationship or just treat yourself and your family on valentine's day. I myself like valentine's day because it can be such a cozy time of year, with the fireplace crackling and the house full of good smells from baking and cooking.
Here are some tried and true recipes that will add some romance to your Valentine's Day. After all, nothing says LOVING like something from the oven!
Your sweetheart won't be able to resist these Valentine's Day Recipes...
According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first 'valentine' greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl -- who may have been his jailor's daughter -- who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed 'From your Valentine,' an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic figure. It's no surprise that by the Middle Ages, Valentine was one of the most popular saints in England and France.
I feel that Valentine dinners should be special. Choose your sweetie's favorite foods and surprise him or her with a wonderful romantic meal and a special table set for two. If you have a fireplace, set a small table close by, and use your most delicate china and crystal. A few candles and a small, low bowl of fresh flowers will complete the atmosphere. .
