Cooking from the Heart

We spent a relaxing Valentine’s Day at home. I loved how our kitchen smelled as I simmered beef chuck and vegetables in our new Dutch oven.

From the pink frosting to the sliced strawberries, I loved the extra-sweet touches my hubby added to his dessert.

I enjoy crafting delicious entrees inspired by foodie TV at home.

Most of all, I love spending this holiday in the kitchen with my two top choices for Valentines: My hubby and Daisy.

David Rocco’s anniversary dinner in Tuscany inspired this first course. The sliced truffles added a brilliant, woody flavor to the eggs fried in olive oil.

Another classic, yet simple dish: Boeuf Bourguignon.

Anthony Bourdain’s recipe was easy to follow and it produced tender, savory beef chunks with an incredible stew.

I followed in blogger Bianca Garcia’s footsteps and served the stew with fettuccine tossed with butter, garlic-infused olive oil and chopped parsley.

We finished off with my hubby’s flourless chocolate cake.
