I admire people who brave the crowds and venture out to eat on Valentine's Day. I am not one of them. For the past few years, I've prepared dinner for Kalon on the 14th, and then he takes me out later in the week. It's a tradition I hope to continue for a very long time! Here is our rustic, very low key Valentine's dinner:
Cutting the fettucine. I love my KitchenAid pasta roller!
Creamy carbonara sauce
Aren't steamed asparagus beautiful?
I think you have to serve a chocolate dessert on Valentine's day. These individual lava cakes are so easy to make and bake in eight minutes.
