Appetizers For Two:

     I adore the notion of staying in the evening of Valentine's Day and enjoying a quiet night with my loved one. Shahin must love me (or be nuts over me, as in crazy) because he agreed to watch the 90s version of Sabrina with me on VHS tape starring Greg Kinnear, Harrison Ford, and the stunning Julia Ormond in the title role. I thought no movie night is complete without something to snack on and Valentine's Day called for something especially elegant. Although I want to serve something fancy, I know I also need something simple to prepare so that I can enjoy the movie. I decided to make baked crostini with prosciutto wrapped string beans for the occasion. Just pre heat the oven to 350 degrees and fill a prepared baking sheet with string beans wrapped in salty prosciutto and slices of baguette brushed with olive oil. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes then serve with tasty extras like dried tangy cranberries, walnuts, and goat cheese! 

       Watching the 90s remake of Sabrina is one of my own personal traditions, do you have any for Valentine's Day? I wish you all lots of love and take care!

Happy Valentine's
Day !!!



  1. Will you come over and cook me Valentine's Day dinner?

    xo Jennifer

  2. I'll be right over!
    Looks magnificent! I love prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

    My husband is whisking me away to dinner and a hotel for a night in the wine country - nearby but far enough away to seem like we're on vacation.
    I am very excited!

    Happy Valentine's Day! Have a wonderfully romantic and fun day with Shahin.
    xo, A
