Recipes to warm hearts, stomachs on Valentine’s Day

February 9, 2014
By Patty Christopher , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Valentines' Day is Friday. Do you have plans to make it special? Flowers, candy, dinner out, - all are great, but diamonds are better. They last forever, don't add pounds, look good on everyone, and all her friends will admire them. Great for brownie points. A special meal on the home front does wonders, too, especially if the weather outside is nasty and you want to stay home by the fireplace. A prime rib roast is a magnificent entree, but a chuck roast that has been marinated can taste as good. The flavor of chuck is about the best on beef, but it is a tough meat and needs that marinade to tenderize it. Same with chuck steak. Of course, if your other half has a favorite meal, that is the one to go with. The kids need to feel special, too. Even red gelatin hearts can be special for them, and so easy and budget-wise. If you don't have heart molds, make the gelatin in a flat pan and use a cookie cutter to cut out hearts.
