Romantic Valentine's Day Dinner Ideas
I was recently given two beautiful cookbooks to review.
Cooking Confidence, by Joanne Weir
Modern Flavors of Arabia, by Suzanne Husseini
Now, I love a good cookbook and I own many...
Cookbooks were one of the things I indulged in when I had lots of disposable income...smile.
So you know I was excited when these two puppies came in the mail...It's been a while since I bought one for myself...YEAH!
and let me tell you they did not disappoint.
some of you may know the author Joanne Weir from her cooking show on PBS...where she gives all the little details that really make you want to cook...after watching her show or reading her book you will feel like..."I can do that."
The second book, Modern Flavors of Arabia...sigh.
Now, this book is right up my alley...loaded with beautiful pics of food, family and friends...I love cookbooks that mix family stories with great, easy to follow recipes...and this book does not disappoint.
VALENTINE'S DAY IDEA
While flipping through the books I thought, ...wouldn't it be nice and different to purchase a cookbook this week...
choose a recipe...head to the grocery store and pic up all the ingredients...
then on Valentine's Day, you and your significant other can make a meal together...from the book.
...and why not commit to making at least one meal from the book together each month...that way Valentines Day will last longer than a DAY.
Don't forget the cocktails.
