Chili Peppers stimulate endorphins and their caliente kick is sure to get you a little sweaty and thinking about heating things up with your significant other.
Figs are sweet and soft and to me, very flirtatious. Ancient Greeks associated them with love and fertility. An open fig is said to emulate the female sex organs as well. Now I’m blushing! (see recipe below!)
Champagne is viewed as the “drink of love” it lowers inhibitions and causes a warm glow in the body… but I didn't need to tell you that, right? Run to the store and stock up on the bubbly before V-Day!
To me, one of the most romantic things you can do is seduce your significant other with a meal that you have made. There is something about the time, effort, love and thought you put into cooking that makes it so special… and such a turn on. Here is a recipe that is easy and sexy and will impress your guy or girl this Valentine's evening. Make it as a starter or just a snack with champagne.
Brie with Honey and Figs
-2 or 3 figs
1. Leave the brie out for at least 4 hours so its room temperature and soft. This brings out the sweet smoothness of the cheese. Or you can also put the brie on a grill for a couple minutes and flip for an extra couple of minutes. If you don’t have a grill, you can put the cheese in the oven at a low heat for about 8-10 minutes (you just want to warm the cheese not melt it)
2. Take a small saucepan on low setting and put in the honey and thyme leaves and warm just slightly. You don’t want it boiling whatsoever.
3. Take out the brie, plate it, top it with some chopped figs and then drizzle it with the thyme infused honey.
4. Serve with some crackers or warm bread.
