Top Dating Recipes

If you’re currently dating someone and have met them a few times, there’s surely a time when you’re both comfortable enough to meet at your home. You know enough about each other to let them into your living room, knowing that you both want the same thing from your blossoming relationship. If you do invite your date to your house, how do you keep them entertained? Perhaps the best way of doing so is cooking a romantic meal for them, just to show them that you care.

When cooking a romantic meal, there are some recipes which seem so much more romantic than others. With that in mind, here are some of the best dating recipes around:

Seen as an aphrodisiac, oysters work very well alone or topped with a drizzle of oil, sauce or dressing. One of the best methods of cooking them is to roast them on a bed of salt at 375 degrees for five minutes or until they open. After discarding the shells, add a dash of dressing, soy sauce or olive oil and serve. You could add a squeeze of lemon juice and a few chilli flakes to give them a kick.

Spaghetti Bolognese
A classic meal for all occasions, if it’s cooked right, it’s bound to go down well with both of you. All you need is 1 cup of lean minced beef, one 14 oz. can of chopped tomatoes, a pinch of black pepper, a finely-chopped onion and some basil to serve. If necessary, feel free to add mushrooms. First, slowly fry the onions until they start to soften, and then add the minced beef. Once the beef is browned, add the tomatoes and black pepper and simmer until the sauce is done. While the sauce is simmering, cook 5 oz. of dried spaghetti until tender in a deep pan of boiling water. Drain the spaghetti and serve on a plate. Top with the sauce and add a sprig of fresh basil to serve.

Chocolate cupcakes
They may be small, but they’re great for dessert, and you can make some for your date to take home as a present. To make them, you need 7 tbsp butter/margarine, 1 cup muscovado sugar, 1 cup self-raising flour sifted, 2 eggs, 3 oz. dark chocolate, 1tbsp. cocoa powder, 2 tbsp. milk and 2 cups dark chocolate plus 3 tbsp butter for the icing.

Using an electric whisk, mix the sugar, cocoa powder and 7 tbsp of butter/margarine until the mixture is light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs one at a time, beating in before adding the other. Afterwards, fold in the flour carefully, then melt the 3 oz of dark chocolate and add to the mixture, and then thin with the milk. Place the mixture into 12 separate cupcake cases and cook between 10 and 20 minutes until they’re done. For the icing, melt the 2 cups of chocolate, chopped and the remaining butter in a microwave on full power until it’s done. When the cakes are cooled, spoon the icing on top and leave until cool.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
