Valentine’s Day All-Star Recipes

Chocolate body paint and rose petals are for sissies. We all know that the way to someone's heart is via the belly. If these dishes look familiar, it's because they're the all-stars of precoital dining, the greatest hits that will never disappear from Valentine's menus (even if you secretly want them to). So don't go rogue and try to be creative; make these dishes, because they taste good and you want to eat them.
