How do I choose a decadent dessert recipe that shows my love and affection?


Holy SH#T…Not so easy

there are so many beautiful desserts out there



Here are a few tips

  1.  Consider the time and difficulty level you are looking for.  Start early and build in extra time- so you can enjoy the process, and enjoy your Valentine.
  2. Choose a dessert that you both will enjoy. Whether it’s chocolate and fudgy, red velvet cake , or even a small collection of favorite desserts, it’s important to consider your sweethearts tastes.
  3. Consider presentation. A dessert that looks beautiful and is presented in a thoughtful way can be just as special as the dessert itself.  Can you customize the dessert to make it extra special?
  4. Get creative with dessert ideas and their ingredients. Make it festive. Use heart-shaped cookie cutters to create fun shapes, or decorate with red and pink sprinkles, toppings or icing.
  5. Make it a surprise. If you’re feeling adventurous, try making the Valentine’s Day treat a surprise for your partner. You could even present it iwith candles or flowers?
  6. Consider pairing your dessert with a beverage, cocktail, or wine that makes the dessert flavors even more luxurious.
  7. Make your Valentine’s Dessert together- Easy Dessert, Classic Dessert, it doesn’t matter.  Enjoy learning and creating together. 



Can foods be Aphrodisiacs?

An aphrodisiac is supposed to increase sexual desire,  pleasure, and performance. Natural remedies and recipes have been used throughout Europe, Africa, India, and China for thousands of years.  According to Allina Health, There are 8 foods that are said to put you in the mood.  Whether they do or not, is not exactly scientific, but these ingredients might be timely for a Valentine’s Day Menu.

  • Artichokes
  • Asparagus
  • Dark chocolate
  • Figs
  • Oysters
  • Spicy chili peppers
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Watermelon



But what delicious dessert ingredients have Sexy Superpowers?


Most of us have heard the Rich Chocolate is the food of love. Figs have Zinc and Magnesium, and those nutrients have a vital power: they make sex hormones!  Watermelon is said to boost arousal.   Pomegranate juice is purported to boost testosterone.  Pine Nuts or Italian Pignolia nuts have had a reputation as an aphrodisiac since ancient times.  For men on a Western diet, Walnuts improve the quality of a man’s semen, according to a study published in Biology of Reproduction. Saffron might be the secret ingredient to better sex . According to the University of Guleph, it’s a performance booster.   Of course, a beautiful glass of Wine, Champagne, or Prosecco is a relaxer- but not too much- overserved wine can result in impotence.

Find these ingredients and recipes for decadent Valentine’s Day Desserts that are super easy to make on this blog… If that doesn’t work,  you can always crank up the Barry White classics (and there’s always whipped cream)
