Valentine’s Sonnet: Food Love

If today you wish for your beloveds fair

to please them much with treats and favors,

I offer tips, cues, and recipes rare

beyond cliched cards and “fax me” flavors.

Do consider the unconventional tack,

of a homemade lava cake to warm the heart;

or if a love of chocolate (God forbid) you lack,

Try instead a brown butter raspberry tart.

When the weather’s chilly and the breezes blow

wear naught but a bathrobe in your cozy abode,

make your own sushi when the sky again snows,

maybe cheese fondue, or warm pie a la mode.

In short, make your love a soup or a sandwich,

For nothing says Valentines like the 6th love language.


Happy Valentines day! Get cooking!
