The No Boys/Girls Allowed Anti-Valentine's Day Menu

February 11, 2013

7 Valentine's Menus are coming your way this week -- for every scenario, whether you're wooing a first date or boycotting romance altogether.

No heart-shaped desserts allowed. Follow the action and share your stories at #NoMoreBadValentines.

Romance is great and all, but there's nothing like knowing your friends have your back. Forget about that significant other (or lack thereof) and rally up your troop of friends: this Valentine's Day, it's time for a night in with good friends, bad movies, booze, and cake.

My two (current) favorite foods start with the letter D: doughnuts, and dumplings. If a dish has bacon in it, I will most likely eat it. If I could marry honey butter, I would.
