Skip the crowded restaurants this year, and make it special at home.

Far from the stereotype that “women should be cooking” instead of enjoying a quiet night in sipping on Champagne and being waited upon, there are a few occasions when we like to claim our perfect “housewife” status. Valentine’s day is the perfect opportunity to remind our men just how amazing we are!

Rest assured this will be the biggest aphrodisiac for your man. Nothing can beat a good home cooked meal and a caring wife and if you can add a pair of sky high Louboutins to the picture, you’re set for an engagement ring, or diamond wedding.

So here are little recipes we’ve put together for you … Easy, simple and tasty! Don’t worry you won’t need to have taken part in master chef to achieve an ultimate result.
