Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like.

Got it!

This is a note I wrote to my boyfriend:

Please buy me cheese for Valentine's Day. I did not accidentally type "cheese" and actually mean "flowers." If you do get me cheese, please include some sort of pun-centric card. A wedge of Parmesan without a note like "You're grate" or "I think you're whey cool" would be a missed opportunity.

And why puns, you ask? Well, there's that colloquialism about the way to a man's (ahem, or woman's) heart being through the stomach, but puns with food are better. It's wit and romance! Let me tell you, nothing—except maybe cheese—says l-o-v-e like clever wordplay.

Here are 30 romantic food puns (and recipes) for your valentine:
