Valentine's Day Ideas: Mixing the Rich & Romantic

February 3, 2017
Valentine's Day ideas are no longer confined to flowers or a box of chocolates; though you can't go wrong with either one.  We've asked some of our friends and family for their ideas on what makes for a special day?  You guessed it--sweeties come first with romantic acts close behind.  Here are some really simple ideas to show your love.

Homemade Valentine's Day Treats

strawberries

 

Chocolate Nutella  Dipped Strawberries

The traditional Valentine's Day Treat, with a nutty twist!

INGREDIENTS

12 large strawberries

½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips

2 heaping tablespoons of Nutella

Slivered almonds, Shredded coconut, Sprinkles (optional garnish)

DIRECTIONS

Wash and dry strawberries. In a small bowl, microwave chocolate chips in 30-second intervals. Once melted, stir in 2 tablespoons of Nutella until smooth.

Dip each strawberry into the warm chocolate mixture, being sure to coat each side evenly. (Tip: Berries must be dry pre-dip. Set each strawberry onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Garnish your chocolate covered strawberries with shredded coconut, slivered almonds, white chocolate, sprinkles, etc.

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels for Valentine's Day Recipe

INGREDIENTS

1 bag of pretzel rods

regular and white chocolate almond bark

Valentine's Day themed sprinkle candies

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt almond bark in microwave according to package directions. Dip pretzels in chocolate.

  2. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles right after dipping pretzels in chocolate. Lay on wax or parchment paper and let harden.


oreo truffles

 

Easy Oreo Truffles

INGREDIENTS

8 ounces cream cheese

1 package Oreos (any flavor)

4 ounces white chocolate, or semisweet chocolate, melted

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the cookies in a food processor and pulse until "crumby." Add cream cheese and pulse again until a sticky dough forms. Form into 1? round balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place them in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours or up to 1 day.

  2. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in microwave. Roll the chilled truffles in the chocolate until completely coated, then place them back on the lined cookie sheet. Chill them in the refrigerator until set, about 1 more hour.


Valentine's Day Ideas #2--Tell Them/Show Them That You Love Them

Create an intimate Valentine's Day evening at home, without the children.  Little acts of love and kindness go a long, long way...

  • Privacy and weather permitting, watch a romantic movie on your deck or patio.

  • Ice Skating at Main Street Square.

  • Write a loving note or poem for your spouse, and frame it.

  • Make a special “Reasons I Love You” Valentine's Day dinner for your sweetheart. On his/her plate, leave a letter or card listing the reasons that you love your spouse.


Valentine's Day Ideas #3--Say It With Dinner

Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, getting her out of the kitchen is almost as good.  A Valentine's Day dinner is a great way to show everyone in the family just how much you care.

Super Bowl LI: Are You Ready For Some Football?

February 3, 2017
February 5, 2017. It's Game On.  Pull up your Super Bowl snacks "to do" list.  If it has anything on it that will take you more than two hours, cross it off. The Super Bowl is not about gourmet cooking, planning and a big investment.   Fun is the prime directive, and no one can have fun if the host is stressed out about cooking and coasters.

Let's start with the basics.  Every good Super Bowl party needs:

  • Lots of ice. For drinks and for coolers

  • Beer (plus coolers/ tubs if you don't already have them)

  • Soda

  • Paper plates and bowls

  • Plastic cups

  • Plastic cutlery and paper napkins

  • Bottle openers (even if you have one, might be worth buying a couple extras)

  • Bar ingredients


Time-tested Super Bowl snacks

Nobody watches the Super Bowl on an empty stomach.  Finger food is the name of the game, and these Super Bowl snacks are at the top of our list

  • Popcorn— Popcorn is often mentioned as a healthy snack food, and this is as healthy as this list is going to get.

  • Candy— It's a no brainer. M&Ms, Skittles, Starburst—the gamut of "pop 'em in your mouth" favorites.

  • Hamburgers— America's sport meets America's food. It's never too cold to fire up the grill.

  • Chips— Well, of course, every Super Bowl party needs chips. You are sure to find something in a bag to munch on during the big game. You can even get some tortilla chips and dip it in salsa. Ole!

  • Pizza— It's hard to go wrong with pizza. Get it from your favorite place or get some frozen.

  • Ribs— Messy, but hard to pass up. No one will complain if they miss a play.

  • Subs & Sandwiches—The trick with subs and sandwiches is to keep them small. Mix it up—roast beef turkey, cheese, ham and veggie.  The "something for everyone" Super Bowl

  • Chili— Great chili is like a great quarterback. There aren't too many but, if you find one, it's awesome.

  • Wings— If you are going to have anything, you have to have some wings. Boneless or bone in, wings are the perfect treat for you at your Super Bowl Shindig.

  • Guacamole— This is the mandatory Super Bowl food. I mean, this is a classic. So get out the sour cream, onions and grated cheese.  Dig in!

  • Cookies & Brownies— After you have indulged in all the saltiness of snack foods, you will be in the mood for something sweet. What better than some cookies to make that happen? Everyone needs a little somethin' sweet.


There's only a few days left until the big day.  Don't want to miss a single minute of the game? Come join us at Shooters Wood Fire Grill for the Super Bowl with our Super Sampler. Get onion rings, cheese planks, jalapeno corn nuggets, smoked Gouda Mac bites, Asiago Portabella mushrooms, loaded taco wontons, and a 16 oz. domestic beer for just $5!
