valentine's dinner

the hubby and i don't really get into valentine's day. not that there's anything wrong with it, but we're just not really a sentimental type couple. but i have been a bit obsessed with a variety of cooking related tv shows lately, so i've been jonesing to cook. so i found what i thought to be a few yummy and sort of valentine's-ish recipes online and decided to try them out tonight. it was the yummiest dinner! i totally recommend it for your special someone.

we had artichoke stuffed shells in ricotta cheese sauce, recipe courtesy of my favorite food blogger, with a salad and homemade bread (not made by me but by a friend of ours who just so happens to be a trained pastry chef.)

for dessert we had mexican spiced chocolate lava cake which was so rich that i thought i was going to die after eating it. (that's not to say it wasn't the best thing in the world.) we also had homemade whipped cream with it, which really helped to balance out the sweetness.
