Author Notes

Whether it's for Valentine's Day, an anniversary, or just a romantic dinner at home for two, this Seductive Strawberry Zabaglione (zah-habl-YOH-nay) has everything you need for a sexy dessert: red, ripe strawberries, velvety custard, and sweet Italian wine. You can substitute champagne for the Marsala wine if you think it's more romantic, but the Marsala's flavor is fuller and sexier. You can also substitute raspberries if you prefer. —Food Blogga
