Have you heard it’s Valentine’s Day? That day for hand holding and smooching and endless utterings of adoration? For some, at least. For the rest of us, the day holds less import. But does it have to? “NO!” shouts a chorus of loners, arms raised in unison.
This Valentine’s Day, you could treat your partner-in-crime or your best friend—or you could treat the person who knows you better than anyone else: yourself. I’m here to advocate not for a fancy meal for two (or three, or four—no judgement!), but a verified Feast! For! One! Don’t sit around, twiddling your thumb, with the blues and takeout. Crank up the oven, pour yourself a glass of something nice, listen to your favorite playlist, and toast to another year around the sun spent with—points to self—this guy.
Whether you want to try your hand at something new and complex, or savor something simple, go for it. This night is all about celebrating yourself.
This recipe is perfectly tailored for the single cook. It's rich without being overly complex. Twirl away.
