Valentine’s Day is all about love, thus making it the perfect holiday to celebrate your love for food. Out of all the relationships that have formed and been broken, our relationship with food is by far the most consistent.With that being said, I ask: “food, will you be my valentine?”

I’m dedicating this Valentine’s day to one of the most amorous recipes associated with romance: chocolate covered strawberries. It’s easy to order these delectable treats online, but true love is expressed through actions that include more than just the simple click of a mouse.
