Food for Love  

Review by Debbie Mazo


Food for Love 
On Valentine's Day, most couples celebrate by venturing out for a romantic meal. For this busy night of the year, Valentine's Day enthusiasts usually need to book in advance for a traditional meal that's often uninspiring. To ignite the flames of passion in a special way, check out Homearts' Food for Love.

Part of the network of Homearts sites, Food for Love offers a guide to the romantically challenged who need extra help for setting the mood on the most romantic night of the year. Since food and love go hand in hand, why not prepare your Valentine's Day meal as a couple and make the evening last longer. Click on Preparing the Meal Together and you'll discover that teamwork and partnership are the essence of a good relationship, even in the kitchen.

Food for LoveWhen it comes to creating a romantic feast, nothing sparks the mood better than a well-dressed table. When setting your table, follow the site's advice and don't skimp on fundamentals like a simple flower arrangement and low candles. Tune out distractions like phones and television, and you're bound to keep the mood of the evening flowing.

To help get your meal off to a good start, click on Sexy Foods for romantic food suggestions. Here, you'll find meal pointers like keeping selections light and low fat. Add some zest to your romance by liberally using spices, but avoid serving heavy sauces and salad dressings.

If you're looking for the perfect recipe, Food and Love offers a special Romantic Menu. Selections include a tasty appetizer combining Prosciutto and Melon garnished with parsley and lime wedges. Or, sample a main course of Tuna Steaks with Orange Soy Sauce and Red Grapes lightly sautéed in olive oil, orange juice, lemon juice, and wine. Follow the menu suggestions at Food for Love, and you may just rekindle that spark that brought the two of you together.
