Guys could cooking be the Valentine’s Day gift for your love? we have all heard the old adage concerning the way to a man’s heart is always by way of his stomach-and for several men that holds true still today. This does not suggest that a woman won’t find a man with cooking ability sexy. A man that can cook-or even bake!-is a tremendous draw for a woman.
Given that this goes both ways, I’m going to provide you several good recipes that are tried and true plus your partner is going to enjoy that you took made the effort to prepare something for them. In several ways, a homemade gift-whether it’s a card or even some Valentines Day chocolate coated strawberries-is the method to someone’s heart. It shows them that you genuinely care sufficiently to put in the time in addition to the work to give them a part of yourself. How could that ever be a bad thing?
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
12-14 large, luscious strawberries and 8 oz. of good quality milk chocolate or white chocolate.
You could perform this 1 of 2 methods; melt the chocolate in a double boiler on the stove, as well as melt this in a bowl in the microwave. I choose the microwave since it is faster. Clean and dry the berries. As soon as the chocolate is melted, dip the strwberries into the chocolate nearly 2/3 of the way up. Put aside on wax paper to set. Delicious & A Romantic Valentine’s Day Gift!
Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies

Bake at 375 degrees for around an hour and 15 minutes. Cool and dust with powdered sugar, garnish with raspberries.
What is more deliciously sensual than dipping things in chocolate? Melt chocolate inside a fondue pot and have different foods all set to be dipped. You might utilize chunks of angel food cake, strawberries, bananas and even pineapple.
