Valentine Night Strawberries

Rating: 4.48 stars
58

Strawberries stuffed with lightly-sweetened cream cheese and walnuts are perfect for that romantic evening. They go great with champagne! Pecans also work well in this recipe.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Rating: 4.61 stars
1446

One of our family's favorites, it's also great when made with crab meat instead of the shrimp.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Rating: 4.7 stars
656

A very dark, rich chocolate cookie for the true chocoholic. This recipe uses relatively little flour, resulting in dense, fudge-like cookies. These cookies keep well in the freezer (but you may have a hard time waiting for them to thaw before you eat them).

Bacon Rose Quiche

Rating: 4.67 stars
6

This bacon rose quiche is so rich and creamy, it will melt in your mouth. It's the best quiche recipe I have ever tried! Bacon slices made into cute roses for the top make this dish perfect for company. Garnish with extra green onions, if desired.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Rating: 4.81 stars
1226

This is the simplest version of chocolate covered strawberries I know. Paraffin was originally used instead of shortening. Turn the strawberries upside down and insert by the toothpicks into a piece of styrofoam for easy cooling, or simply place them on a sheet of wax paper. White chocolate may be drizzled over the milk chocolate for a fancier look. They are perfect for weddings when decorated with frosting bow ties, bells, butterflies, roses, etc.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Rating: 4.71 stars
628

My husband taught me this elegant yet easy side dish! Always a hit at the holidays, and dresses up every day chicken.

Valentine Heart Necklaces

Rating: 4.65 stars
48

These are a great substitute for children to take to school in lieu of Valentine's Day cards! Use a drinking straw to cut the holes in the pastry.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Rating: 4.68 stars
382

A great combination of flavors. Serve with some mashed garlic red potatoes and sweetened green beans for a fabulous special occasion meal. Don't forget to serve a bottle of Cabernet or Zinfandel.

Sweetheart Cupcakes

Rating: 4.67 stars
239

Instead of just plain white cupcakes, I took it a step further and made them special. You can change the colors for any holiday. Shades of green for St. Patrick's Day, pastel colors for Easter, red white and blue for the 4th of July. You get the picture.

Easy Valentine Sandwich Cookies

Rating: 4.6 stars
151

This recipe makes 17- 3 inch sandwich cookies and 17 - 1 1/2 inch heart shaped cookies. You'll need a 3-inch heart shaped cutter and a 1 1/2-inch heart shaped cutter. Frost with Pink Valentine Frosting (see recipe).

Surf and Turf for Two

Rating: 4.87 stars
38

This is a simple way to make a special dinner any night of the week. You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already. Serve shrimp alongside steaks with your favorite sides.

Lobster Mac and Cheese

Rating: 4.14 stars
96

High class meets down home. This dish is just my style. The amazing combination of flavors make this one of my favorites.

Well-rounded seafood and pasta dish. Good with any pasta; angel hair is less filling.
