Valentine’s day has always been my favorite holiday. I love the store displays in my favorite colors and the heart shaped boxes of candy, but as I’ve grown up the part I love most is finding creative ways to have fun with my loved ones.
As a homebody, I prefer a romantic night in over a night on the town. Here’s some of my ideas on how to have the perfect date night at home!
A quick and easy way to create a romantic snack is with this Rachel Ray Fondue Set. It’s even in red to set the mood. Whether you and your love prefer chocolate or cheese, there are a plethora of options to match up with either flavor. I prefer sweet, so traditionally I pair chocolate with fruit, but angel cake can be a delicious addition as well. If you prefer savory, cheese fondue goes well with bread, pretzels, or even veggies. As a child I was given a small fondue kit for Valentine’s day, so I’m very excited to try this grown up version and make fondue night a new tradition.

This December 6, we give a shoutout to an unsung hero, the microwave. Patented by Raytheon in 1945, the inventor, Percy Spencer, discovered that microwaves are ideal for heating food when he noticed a chocolate bar melting in his pocket while experimenting with electromagnetic waves!
