I have a confession to make. I am a Valentine’s Day Grinch. From Hallmark to the ridiculous 4 foot Vermont Teddy Bears to the incessant commercials, it all makes me feel grumpy that so much artificial marketing goes into one day; not to mention the pressure and mountain of expectations that are stacked up for everyone involved. What I do love is making food for someone I love. Food IS LOVE in my world.
Instead of a long roundup for Valentine’s Day, I thought a romantic movie paired with a recipe roundup would be fun. I asked a few favorite bloggers for their favorite romantic movie and a recipe to match. Ahhhhhhh food and romance. Now there you go.

“My favorite romantic movie is “Up.” Really! It’s a great romance and one of the only animated movies that has made me cry.”
