A truly fun (and literary!) Valentine's Day idea from Chocolove, makers of all-natural and organic chocolates: The Chocoloveletter, where you can send a love note AND a bar of chocolate to your sweetie for less than $10. (If you want to save paper, you can send an e-card instead.) The site offers numerous choices to capture your feelings, with categories including "Now & Forever," "New and Exciting," "Love Love Love," and of course "Hot & Heavy" -- each with a selection of writings, poems, songs, or sonnets fitting to that sentiment. What a great idea! Don't forget to pick a chocolate bar to go with it. (I'm thinking Orange Peel & Dark Chocolate for my honey.)
And for a fantastic, romantic dinner, check out this month's Valentine's Day menu. I made this entire menu last year and believe me, it was a huge hit. Try it; I'd love to get your feedback!
