Love in the kitchen with sexy cuisine

141 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually making this day of love and romance the second most popular greeting card giving occasion.  Aristotle once said, “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies”.  February is the month of romance and although tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, there isn’t a single reason why we shouldn’t continue to show love in the kitchen throughout the entire month.  Cooking and tasting the food together can be some powerful foreplay.

I asked a couple friends if they would like to contribute a “sexy dish” for  Valentine’s Day and I love the recipes that they are sharing with us today.  Cooking together, tasting the foods together and feeding each other can be and extremely romantic and erotic occasion.  This can be done anytime, not just on Valentines Day, consider making a “date” with your special someone, whip up a jazzy concoction, share a cocktail or two and simply enjoy the magic you create.

First I want to thank the recipe contributors.  I Wanna be a Country Clever, What’s for Dinner? Ally’s Kitchen and Will Cook for Friends.  I appreciate these talented foodie bloggers for allowing me to share the following with you.
